My Clinic Is Open For Essential Treatment!

It was fantastic to be given permission from the Gov and my Professional Association to reopen last week, following the strict conditions to only treat clients for a medical necessity but this also means that unfortunately I'm not able to see clients for general maintenance treatment.
If you are unsure whether you can receive treatment then contact me to discuss your condition.
Although I am permitted to continue providing essential treatment for those who require it, I am also continuing to provide my free nationwide support for all key workers who require some virtual help with their aches & pains but are unable to afford either the time or money to see a professional.
During the first lockdown of 16 weeks, I supported 85 NHS staff members from as far afield as Edinburgh, but this time I am including all key workers and not just NHS staff.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch to discus how I can help you including virtual mobility exercises, stretching advice and self care routines.
It is absolutely no problem at all and it's completely free of charge and confidential.
Please contact me directly via chris@back2best.com.

Best regards

Chris

A sense of normality.!

I hope you are all keeping well during this second lockdown.

Alongside my private work, I am keeping busy with my time working at Oxford United FC where I am still able to treat the players as part of the medical team made up of dedicated and talented professionals; Amy Cranston (1st team physio), Spike (Soft Tissue Therapist) & Nathan Benjamin Smith (Sports Therapist).

It's so vital to maintain a routine as close to normality as possible, even if there are some restrictions.  Fingers crossed that change is just around the corner.

Business as normal with Oxford United FC.

It's great to be back working with the medical team at Oxford United supporting the first team players.

There are a lot of changes respecting the current environment and safety is paramount, but I am so pleased to be able to return to work with the club.

We just need the fans back as soon as possible, as sitting in an almost empty stadium during matches just ain't the same!

Return To Normality After The FA Cup

Now it’s back to business!

After a very exciting night under the floodlights yesterday, it is back to my clinic for the next couple of days before returning to Oxford Utd on Friday to help the team physically prepare for Saturday's league game.

It is always a highlight to share the experience of a large occasion with Oxford Utd, and yesterday was no exception.  To see the players all give 100% on the pitch over 120 mins is so rewarding for the medical team, and although the FA Cup run was a nice distraction, it is back to business and concentrate on the league and our aim of promotion this season.

Due to Friday's extra session with Oxford Utd, and I am also attending an athletics meeting on Saturday, mean that my clinic spaces are more limited than usual this week, so please let me know asap if you would like to book an appt.

Back for my 7th season with Oxford United FC!

Back for my 7th season with Oxford United FC!

It was great to return to Oxford United to work alongside the OUFC medical team after 6 weeks away today.

This time of year the majority of the soft tissue treatment is to help maintain the player's physical condition while they train at an increased level in order to achieve maximum fitness and start the season as strongly as possible.

It is always enjoyable to work alongside the medical team again especially the 'boss' Amy who is the 1st team physio, Spike (who I have had the pleasure of working alongside for the past 7 years) and Nathan the Sports Therapist.

When I return after the pre season break I always find it strange to not see the 1st team players who have left the club but then again it is always nice to greet the new arrivals who will soon become familiar faces and the relationship of athlete/therapist forms where we can both identify what types of treatment they find most beneficial.

My time at Oxford United equates to one full day at the training ground and attending the home matches and is a very rewarding part of my career and it fits in well with my time as a professional Soft Tissue Specialist allowing me time to run my clinic in Headington to treat those who need my help including; professional athletes, semi pro and amateur athletes, recreational sportspeople, office workers for postural pain and absolutely anyone else who would like to benefit from a professional soft tissue treatment/sports massage.

Here's to a successful 2019/2020 season for Oxford United!
