Juliana Samson, Grad Cert Phty, BAppSc Phty (Hons) (HCPC Registered)
Juliana’s passion is running. Her approach is to address the movement, technique and biomechanical issues that underlie running injuries, to come up with a solution that is long term rather than a just short term fix.
As part of the Performance Matrix team, http://www.theperformancematrix.com/juliana_samson Juliana worked with world experts in movement screening, to develop a sports specific screen for distance runners called ‘TPM RunningTM.’ This powerful tool generates a report that gets to the heart of the core control and strength issues that underlie movement inefficiencies in runners. She is set to teach other therapists, trainers and coaches how to use the TPM Running tool in April 2014.
Juliana can take a detailed injury history, assess your biomechanics, perform a ‘TPM RunningTM.’ screen and a video analysis of your running. From this, she can plan a targeted exercise programme to address your key weaknesses and take you through it step by step.
In 1996, Juliana started her physiotherapy training in Sydney Australia and after a few years in clinical practice, she returned to university to complete her musculoskeletal specialist training in Adelaide. She developed her special interest in treating runners from working for the British Army for 10 years and setting up practice above the ‘Up and Running’ store in Harrogate, out of which she practiced for 5 years. She also spent time learning from Army HQ Headley Court and running coaches in London to combine her physiotherapy and movement retraining skills with technique work. Currently Juliana is studying at Keele University for her Master’s degree, where she is keeping up to date with the latest developments in core stability for injury management, prevention and sporting performance.
Juliana offers her services here Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and can be contacted on 01423 307 242 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Initial physiotherapy appointments are charged at £45 and follow ups are £40, however the specialist running assessment is conducted over 2 sessions.
