She worked for World Class Hockey for 7 years and spent 4 years as Physiotherapist for the England U18 Men’s squad. Jo is still an active golfer and skier, and has an in-depth understanding of how physiotherapy can improve performance and prevent injury.

Sports Massage and Physio

We offer Sports Massage at JK Physio. The benefits of Sports Massage are fully appreciated by top level athletes who are often pushing their bodies hard in training and in competition. They usually work as part of an extended team from health professionals and strength and conditioning coaches to sports psychologists and nutritionists. This multi discipline approach is recognised as the best way of maintaining highly tuned athletes at ‘match fit’ level. Andy Murray is the well-known example.
At JK Physio, although not working with top level elite athletes with their own multidisciplinary teams, we appreciate its benefits for our community.The majority of our clients are aspiring to be at their best, whether for sport, for work or for everyday life. They are often suffering from injuries or dealing with longstanding aches and pains, so we recognise the benefits and need for a multidisciplinary team approach. So here at JK Physio, as well as in house Podiatry and running assessments, we also offer Sports Massage.

Jo Kingston, the Practice Owner, has always seen the benefits and results from ‘hands on’ treatment, especially when carefully combined with skilled mix of treatment modalities such as exercise prescription, acupuncture, ergonomic advice and pain management. As such, she has developed a team of like-minded clinicians who see the benefits of ‘hands on’ treatment. As Physiotherapists, treatment will be led by a detailed assessment, striving for a diagnosis, and the treatment very specifically focused on the target area.

When the acute problem is resolved we might work closely with our Sports Massage Therapist to create a full body treatment programme taking into consideration any underlying issues we have found on assessment. In this way we feel we are offering a more tailored approach to treatment and a more successful management. In reverse, if the Sports Massage Therapist feels detailed examination and treatment is required they will refer to us for a short course of treatment. Good team work is they key…
