Teenage Sports Champion Benefits From Shoulder Physiotherapy.

Shoulder physiotherapy has helped a young sports star scoop a gold medal. Teenage Fencing star Lucy-Belle Williamson suffered an injury in 2018. The GB fencing star was competing in Russia when she dislocated her shoulder. 

The resulting injury was slowing her down and interfering with a rigorous training routine. True Physio’s Andy stepped in, he is one of a handful of physios with in-depth knowledge about the sport of fencing. Following on from her treatment Lucy-Belle competed in the British under-16 Youth Championships. She beat 38 other competitors from across the country to scoop gold in the foil category.

Lucy-Belle and her family have very kindly given us permission to share these fabulous photographs.

Lucy’s Dad is also her coach. She says he is tricky to train with because he “sets traps” for her.

Andy has worked with a number of high profile sports stars including Andrew Flintoff and Lawrence Dallaglio.  Business partner Keith has three decades of experience working in professional football and treating GB athletes.  They have built a team of highly skilled physiotherapists across six North-West clinics.  

Regular physio and massage is also a great way to avoid injury. Get in touch via the envelope icon below.
