Chronic Injury and finding someone good to treat it

After injuring myself at cross country 4 years ago the same injury seems to come back very easily for me (peronius brevis I think).

Mostly when I ask, people recommend a physio, I go and I get better. I'm happy thinking the issue is resolved yet again and again the same issue returns.

From my own research, I think I may have some underlying damage, maybe scar tissue, that is making the re-injury so easy but need a professional to help. The problem I have is finding one that can fix me for the long term and identify the root cause rather than the short term fixes and massage I have been getting from physios in the past.

Does anyone know what sort of things I should be looking for when shopping for a physio - like specific certifications? Areas of expertise etc?

I have found one guy that seems to know his stuff but sadly he is based in the US

Would a referal from a physio or GP to a specialist in the field help?

Agree, try to see a specialist.

I've been under this bloke billribbans.com through the NHS for the past 5 years though even he's baffled whats up with my foot.

If it is something that gets better then comes back, it could well be something you are doing wrong

Got something to say?
