Fiona Reid Physiotherapy
Hi I’m Fiona, and many of you will know me as a CrossFit Wycombe Member – but when I’m not doing CrossFit I’m a Physio! (Chartered Physiotherapist with over 15 years clinical experience in both the NHS and private Practice – including 8 years in Australia).
I’ve always been involved in sport (both as a participant and as a Physio) so I know the importance of being pain and injury-free. I’ve been Team Physio to many different athletes – from swimmers and triathletes, to wake boarding pros and circus/aerial artists!
I’ve loved working with CrossFit members the last few years – they provide a unique challenge of helping someone become both a weight lifter and a gymnast!

Louise Broda Physiotherapy
I have been qualified as a Physio for 18 years and have worked in private & NHS settings; as well as working for the last 8 years in the MoD, treating injured service personnel. I have always had a keen interest in Sports injuries & post-op rehab, having worked at a number of different sports events over the years.
I find the mind-body connection fascinating and have furthered my studies in this area, gaining an NLP practitioner for Sport in 2007; an MSc in Sport Psychology in 2009 & completing a SIRPA (Stress Illness Recovery Practitioners Association) training course in 2012.
Personally I have always been involved in some kind of sport including a lot of cycling (mountain biking and road); adventure racing and more recently stand-up paddleboarding (and yes this is a competitive sport too!).

Bio mechanical assessment and treating complex/ long-term injuries.
I am a highly trained Soft Tissue Therapist. I have many years experience working with the world renowned Leander Rowing Club, Henley Cricket Club and CrossFit Wycombe as well as treating private clients who vary in size, shape, fitness and have a range of issues. This has given me in-depth experience and knowledge of soft tissue therapy treatments.
Having rowed at a high level for 7 years and completed the UK Ironman in 2011 I continue to train everyday and therefore understand the aches and pains resulting from training.
I work to improve the quality of the soft tissues within the body. Soft tissue massage causes an increase in blood supply which releases tension, flushes through lactic acid and realigns scar tissue. I work to correct imbalances built up through training and everyday activities, allowing my c;ients greater freedom of movement and consequently, better quality of life.

Why have a sports massage or cupping therapy?
Its effective way of releasing muscle tension and restoring the balance to the musculo-skeletal system. A constant build up of tension in the muscles can lead to excess stresses on joints, ligaments, tendons and the muscle itself which can lead to injury.
Benefits of soft tissue release:
• Decrease recovery time after injuries
• Prevent injuries
• Increase the healing process of injuries
• Enhanced performance
• Stimulates blood circulation
• Improves the elimination of waste material
• Increases the supply of nutrients to the bodies cells which are needed for growth and repair
