Physio clinic with Andy Thomas
18th October 2019 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm
I’m hosting elite equestrian physio Andy Thomas for both follow up treatments and off-horse initial rider assessment and treatment clinics on 16th August. 1:1 sessions are 45 minutes long for initial appointments or 30 minutes physio sessions for riders that have already had an assessment. This is suitable for all ages, levels and disciplines of riding. Priority will be given for my livery clients and those taking regular coaching sessions with me. Location is Heathers Farm, The Haven, RH14 9BN and the day runs from 08:00-16:30. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire.
If you wish, you can bring a video of your riding for viewing on screen. This short video could include flat work (centreline, circles, lateral work) or jumping.
Andy will explain asymmetry and its potential effect on you and your performance. He will then assess your weaknesses and imbalances and provide a tailored rehabilitation plan to re-correct.
Initial assessments are 45 minutes long and Andy will utilise the Testt process to review which pelvis asymmetry type you have before re-correcting and activating. He will then provide a personalised rehabilitation plan via an integrated app. Follow up treatment sessions are 30 minutes long. Attendees will also be able to see and purchase Andy’s Testt Activation Tool Kit which encompasses exercises and products in a handy go-to bag to use for 15 minutes before you ride to warm up the muscles essential to riding.
