Introducing our newest Technique Physio team member: Edwina Lynn

We are very happy to welcome our newest physio, Edwina Lynn to the Technique Physio team. Edwina will be based at our Vauxhall practice. Edwina has a keen interest in both running and pilates so we thought we would use this opportunity to ask her a few questions about herself and also get her thoughts on both these topics.
 

Where did you study?

The university of East Anglia.

Why Physiotherapy?

To rehabilitate people after injury and to help people achieve their goals.

What areas of physio are you most interested in, or most passionate about and why?

Running injuries – as it’s a sport I’ve done all my life and I know how frustrating it is not being able to run due to injury or being told to do a different form of exercise.
 

We know that you are very keen on pilates, would you recommend them to your physio clients, and if so, why?

Yes, keeping the body moving and strong is the long term goal so I would recommend Pilates to all of my clients.
 

A lot of our clients are keen runners and a few are currently training for half and full marathons. From your experience what should runners do when they first feel a niggle or an injury?

Stop training and if the pain doesn’t settle quickly, consult a physiotherapist (me ?, or any other Technique Physio).

Are there any key exercises or training activities that you do and that you would advise runners to do to safe guard against injury?

I would always recommend mixing up training, whether it’s a twice weekly run, a gym session or a swim. I would also (when possible) try to avoid running in consecutive days to help prevent injury.

What are your top tips or advice for training to avoid injury?

As above – mix up your training regimes. Also changing the distances/speed of runs, and increasing and decreasing the gradient, is really important to help prevent injury.

What are the most common injuries you see in runners?

Achilles tendonditis (a condition that causes pain along the back of the leg near the heel) and ITB syndrome (one of the most common causes of “Runner’s Knee” and accountable for up to 22% of overuse injuries in runners).

How important is a warm up and cool down for injury prevention and performance?

Both a pre-exercise warm up and a post-exercise cool down are SO important. They both help to aid muscle recovery which in turn helps to prevent injury and also maintain or improve your performance.

What are your health and fitness goals for 2019?

Eat well and train harder!
