As a professional track sprint cyclist representing Great Britain, my body is constantly put under stress from up to four track sessions a week in conjunction with intense gym sessions. Lifting up to 200kg often leaves my muscles fatigued, tired and tense. This build up of tension not only limits my range of movement, but also can increase the risk of knee problems. Therefore, preventing such potential injuries is paramount to my training and professional career.
Self treatment such as using a foam roller or a tennis ball can only do so much to help with my symptoms. I have found that regular deep tissue massage relieves the unwanted tightness that can occur during my training and racing schedule.
G4 Physiotherapy has provided top quality massage that has allowed me to continue my training and has helped to prevent common cycling injuries from occurring. This has enabled me to prepare for my main competition for this year, the ‘Under-23 European Championships’ (Portugal, July 2012).
Massage is something that I can strongly recommend for anybody who suffers from muscle tension / tightness, niggles and pains that regular occur with training. The service that I received from the G4 team was superb, professional and first class!
