VIDEO AND FACE-TO-FACE
Initial consultations with Move & Improve are over Zoom or telephone. After your initial assessment, we will see you in person. We will offer appointments in one of our clinics or at home.
You can learn more about our virtual consultations in our frequently asked questions section.
YOUR RECOVERY PLAN
Our first step is to really understand everything about your condition. We've learnt that investing time always results in better long-term outcomes.
Next we establish where your pain is coming from. We’ll assess your posture, joint movement, muscle strength and nerve mobility.
EASING THE PAIN
After the assessment, our first priorities are to help you to understand your problem, ease your pain and improve your movement patterns.
With your pain eased we can focus on making sure your problem doesn't reoccur.
Your treatment plans will put you in control of your condition.
We specialise in the assessment and management of musculoskeletal problems. These commonly occur during sport, training and everyday activity.
"I FEEL MY LIFE IS BACK ON TRACK"
I was in really bad pain when I met Kate Montgomery. I had been in pain for almost 2 years and it was impacting almost all areas of my life. I had given up a lot of activities and even found walking really painful. My GP eventually referred me to Kate and the difference she has made has been amazing. She asked very searching questions and listened carefully. She spent time understanding what was going on which made a huge difference to how I saw my condition. She made small alterations to the way I walked. She made me far more self-aware, in charge of it. I can’t believe what a difference it has made. I’m now pain-free most of the time.
"BESPOKE RECOVERY PLAN"
Dionne's professional and friendly attitude really supported getting me motivated to get through this in a relaxing environment and take away key learnings to follow up at home.
These quick remedial results were only possible due to the positivity, interest and care shown to me to pinpoint the root cause and build a bespoke recovery programme matching my needs exactly.
"FIGHTING FIT AND READY FOR 26 MILES!"
I was born 12 weeks premature and I've always been told that's why I have a weak back. This year I signed up for the London Marathon to raise money for my big sister who we lost to leukaemia. Move & Improve has been helping me strengthen my back muscles. Unfortunately after training to 20 miles, I developed severe blisters in my feet and painful plantar fasciitis in my foot. Working with Kate I have gained a better understanding of my back and now realise that aspects of my training led to the overload in my foot. I feel slightly daunted by the thought of having to run 26 miles but I know my back is in better shape than it ever has been.
