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 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
