SPORTS MASSAGE IN SAFE PHYSIO HANDS

Promote recovery and ease activity related soft tissue tightness, aches and pains with massage

“Hands on” techniques to reduce stress in the body and mind

Before becoming a physiotherapist (where I expanded my expertise), I completed diplomas in sports injuries and sports massage. I am able to apply remedial, Swedish and deep tissue massage techniques to help relieve physical and mental stresses. However, although many still blame tight muscles and soft tissues as the causes of pain, these are actually more often symptoms of another underlying issue.

This is why I recommend that sports massages are used alongside physiotherapy (Ipswich/online) or coaching (Ipswich/online). That way we can relieve your symptoms whilst also addressing the true causes of your pain or stress, saving you suffering, time and money in the long run.

UPDATE: Now based in Ipswich, and no longer have a clinic in Felixstowe

  • After an ankle injury sustained Mountain biking that just would not seem to heal, Carls expertise helped to diagnose what was wrong and get me back to regular training. He prescribed and demonstrated exercises, explained the benefits of each and really helped me to understand the reasons why we were doing them. Progress was seen immediately, and although its still not quite as good as before the injury, i was able to avoid surgery which would of entailed a much longer healing time with no guarenteed results. If you are looking for a friendly and knowledgeable physio look no further!

  • I certainly recommend Carl's online Stroke rehab class. It's convenient connecting to Zoom weekly and Carl is reassuring and knowledgeable in this work. I've been with the class for 1 year plus.

  • Carl helped me when I had inflammation and sharp pain in my Achilles, he diagnosed me straight away and started treating the pain immediately which was a massive relief. Carl gave me specific exercises to work on inbetween sessions which I still include in my workouts today. Carl was very professional and extremely knowledgeable, his treatment room was comfortable and his booking system was easy to use. His service was very personal which I found lacking when visiting other physios . Would highly recommend

  • I saw Carl when I had Sciatica and was in a lot of pain. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable and helped when the pain was at its worst. He gave me some great after care advice as well which I still use now and am pleased to say I am still pain free. Would highly recommend and would use again myself.

  • Carl provided a fantastic sports massage service, saw him twice during a recent visit to Felixstowe, he was flexible around my arrival time, was super organised, punctual and massage was spot on. Would not hesitate to recommend Carl for anyone needing Physio / Sports Massage in the Ipswich / Felixstowe area.

  • positive review  I saw Carl when I was suffering from plantar fasciitis. He sorted out a rehabilitation programme, demonstrated excellent understanding of my needs to get back onto the netball court as quickly as possible and explained clearly what exercises would help. He is knowledgeable about many sports and injuries, as well as being available for advice around training and strength and conditioning. I will certainly seek out his advice in the future.

  • positive review  I became a client of Carl's earlier this year after suffering a calf injury playing rugby. After the extremely professional assessment; medical history, previous injuries, level of physical activity, current physical stats etc. I was given a detailed but easy to follow plan of rehabilitation. No pressure was put upon me to have any follow up appointments; literally my choice if I felt the need for further treatment. I took the opportunity to book a further treatment straight away. Through the careful management of my injury by Carl, sports massage, specific area exercise and monitoring by him, I was able to resume playing rugby again within an incredibly short time frame that I didn't think would've been possible. I can thoroughly recommend Carl for anything from a small niggle to major injury as you'll be seen by the best.

  • positive review  Carl was my supervisor for a time whilst working in MSK physiotherapy in Suffolk. He's always put alot of time and effort into teaching and helping me to understand all things physio related and how best to manage tricky patients. Working with Carl has helped to develop my clinical reasoning skills, handling, and confidence and he is a physio that even with my own six years experience, I would still seek out and value his opinion and advice

  • positive review  Carl did my assessment before referring me to a neurologist when he discovered that physical therapy was not the appropriate course of action. Although unable to assist me with an exercise program, he took the time to go through all of my history, did a thorough physical assessment before making any assumptions and compiled a great referral report which sped things up for me afterwards. Professional attitude, knows his stuff and a friendly guy, highly recommend!
