Welcome to the PhysioWorks, Sports and Wellness Blog!

by | Mar 15, 2015

I want to welcome you and use this blog space to share more about my therapy approach, and to provide you with answers to your questions about common injuries, training methods, and the latest fitness trends. I will also share updates and analysis of the latest Physical Therapy, and sports-science research. To start off with, I would like to tell you a little more about myself, and what I love about Physical Therapy.

I have been practicing Physical Therapy for over 11 years. I earned my Physical Therapy degree and started my career in my hometown of London, England. But then I married a Southern girl who also happens to be an aerospace engineer, so we headed for Rocket City, USA! I’ve enjoyed practicing PT for the last 5+ years in Huntsville and Madison, as a therapist at TOC. I’ve always enjoyed working with athletes of all ages and levels, from adolescents all the way up to elite college and professional athletes. However, I have also noticed a growing number of recreational injuries that might have been prevented with a Physical Therapy assessment and a therapeutic exercise program. Tools such as video running assessment can be combined with a PT’s knowledge of biomechanics to craft a therapy/training program tailored to an individual athlete’s needs, so you can avoid injury, if not improve your performance!

Video Running Analysis - Physical Therapy assessment

Get your running assessment, reduce your injury risk, and improve your performance.

My passion is to help people overcome their injuries and to give them the skills they need to become stronger that ever. I decided it was time for me to step out on my on to offer a new type of therapy practice and service to the Huntsville/Madison community, with injury prevention as a major foundation. Injuries will always occur, and when they do, we will be there to get you back on your feet as quickly as possible. But we want to help you prevent those injuries that can be avoided! Video running assessment is one tool I am excited to be able to offer to this end. Running is such a quick motion that it needs to be viewed in slow motion to be truly understood and improved. When combined with a thorough physical exam, a Physical Therapist can identify the underlying causes of pain or inefficient technique, such as weak core muscles or flexibility asymmetry. This allows us to correct problems before they develop into a serious injury or chronic pain problem. Call us today to schedule an appointment and find out how we can help you get and stay at the top of your game!

Never miss a blog!

I came to Andrew with a hamstring tear that had sidelined me from running and in pain before a planned business trip to India. Andrew was able to target in on the causes and provide me with some great tips on how to decrease my chances of injury while running. His advice about how much I can be working out while recovering was key to my improving so quickly. I definitely recommend him to any athlete!

Andrew is on top of the latest research and therapy practices! As a fitness instructor, being in good physical health is a job requirement. After an injury, Andrew worked to get me back up to speed quick! He takes time to address the physical as well as the mental aspects of recovery. Instead of needing to go for visits 3x per week, I saw him 3x over the course of a couple months and actually saved money. I appreciate the athlete log-in for videos so you can do them at home. Lastly, Andrew is an honest and dedicated professional. Would... read more

Andrew is an extremely valuable asset to our community thanks to his passion for not only his patients, but for staying on top of current research and techniques. I have seen him numerous times and the care I have received is second to none. Andrew is also actively involved in our local athletic community offering injury prevention advice and training tips, and you can often see him volunteering his time at athletic events. Highly recommend.
