Sports Clinic Testimonials

Just wanted to let you know my new hips and I cycled across the Pyrenees for charity in June. 270 miles from Carcasonne to Barcelona in 4 days across the mountains with over 28,000 feet climbed and with no hip pain at all. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life, physically and mentally. Anyway, massive thanks Lisa for your amazing work in my recovery, I’m genuinely very grateful!
— Aaron Chatterley

Massive thank you for your time Lisa. The pain appears to have ‘gone’ completely and Guernsey match was a success! Thank you again for the lovely way you handled him, the very fact he is still doing stretches reinforces how much you have helped.

Thanks to Lisa Mann at The Jersey Sports & Spinal Clinic I am pain free. Two “specialists” and two MRI scans failed to find the source of continuous shoulder pain and advised me to take pain relief for the rest of my life, I was only 45. Lisa found the source of the pain in one session, I was fully recovered very quickly and sleeping without disturbance........and am still racing cycles. Eternal thanks.

I have received excellent care at Jersey Sports & Spinal Clinic, which exceeded my expectations.  The treatment and assessments have been first class and made all the difference to my personally and especially in my sporting life of rugby and golf. They are great listeners, practical and give effective advice for dealing with the symptoms.  This unique experience is right up there as one of the best Physiotherapist clinics in Jersey, it has impressed me so much I am happy to continue to refer family, friends and colleagues.Thank you so much your treatments make all the difference.

Once again many thanks for your last session with Ed, you really gave him the confidence to get back to sport, and is now back to pretty much everything! We cannot thank you enough for all the help & support you gave Ed last year after his operation, his recovery really has been excellent.

I felt compelled to write a testimonial for Lisa Mann after recently receiving physiotherapy from her.  I had major surgery on my feet three months ago which included breaking 8 toes and cutting my calf muscles.  As you can imagine, the recovery has been slow and extremely painful and I really do not think I would have got to the point I am at now without her brilliant treatment.  I cannot recommend this practice enough and she has brought me through an often depressing period due to the surgery to make me appreciate what has been done.  She is a hard task master but it has completely turned my recovery around.

It’s nice being able to workout in the gym without worrying about my knee and, although I may never chance a game of squash or football, it’s such a difference not being aware of my knee and the discomfort in it, which is the complete opposite to how it was.
— Simon Molloy

I played a full 18 holes of golf…(on foot)…and am still on my feet! Many thanks for your patience and insistence on the various ankle exercises. They worked!
— CL

it was a pleasure to come for my appointment. I was very sceptical physio worked, but I am totally converted.
— Leandra Taylor

When I walked in to see you on 18 April I really was at a low.  After 4 weeks of being in pain and at times hardly being able to walk, I was really questioning if I could get back running again.  But today I went out and knocked 35 seconds off my parkrun PB!!  My hip felt great, what was tough was my cardio fitness (I had two little walking breaks). So thank you Lisa.  And thank you as well for taking the time to explain the reasons behind my pain and what I need to be doing to hopefully run injury free in future.  You’ve made such a difference and I am so so grateful.
— Laura Storey

Fantastic service and knowledge I have already recommended to several friends and colleagues.

Just wanted to pop you a message to say that I completed my Ironman 70.3 race on Sunday and smashed my original time target! I honestly cannot thank you enough for getting me strong and fit again after twisting my ankle in May to being able to complete the Jersey tri in July and then the Ironman 70.3 just now!
— Emma Bateman
Fully recovered and back into training...found the Pilates very beneficial.....I continue to do the exercises and keep my core strength up. Thanks very much for your help in my recovery.

I’ve been running seriously for about 12 years, since I was 32 and my wife was expecting our first daughter. I decided it was time to get fit and found I had a talent for running. Never having been given training, I just did what seemed right.

For 10 years, I competed in a serious number of races, from 5km Park Runs to 78km Ultra Marathons (Round the Rock). PBs are 35 mins for 10km and 2:45 for a marathon – usually puts me towards the sharp end of the race! I trained hard, but always running, I’ve never cross trained, used the gym or used different sports – it’s all time taken out of my running!

A couple of years back, I started experiencing some sharp pain in my groin that just seemed to get worse, regardless of my level of training, so I decided to seek help. I approached Jersey Sports and Spinal and was seen by Lisa Mann. Lisa was excellent, worked with me to assess the issue, build strength and try to fix the issue. However, I improved in strength, but the pain persisted. Rather than keeping going, we decided to seek medical advice. Turns out I had a Gilmore’s Groin and two hernias. Following surgery in May 2017, I got straight back to running and came 8th in the Jersey Marathon in October 2017.

However, things still didn’t feel quite right. I’m the wrong side of 40 and getting a few aches and pains, so I spoke to Nigel Mann about how I was feeling. He suggested I come to see David Lemasney to see if his Running Strength and Conditioning Course would be of benefit.

Having assessed my strength and pointing out a couple of tweaks to my running style, I started the course. Even after a few short weeks, I can certainly see and feel the difference in my running. The course concentrates on building core strength and all those muscles that support a runner, but don’t necessarily get a workout when just doing running training. Glutes, abs, calves… I’ve got to say, after the first couple of sessions, I was pretty sore, but I feel stronger and quicker that I’ve been in a while. I do a commute run into work every day and my latest runs have been as quick as those during the latter stages on my marathon training, so something is working! An hour a week is really making a difference.

I’m really happy to be using Jersey Sports & Spinal. The team are excellent and have the talent and expertise to assist with my assessment, recovery and ongoing development. I’m looking forward to the next course!
