What a lady! SV client, Nicole Bernard, has gone from strength to strength these past few months and we couldn't be more proud to work with her!
"I started to see Sophie about 9 months ago when I was getting pain in my knee. I'd qualified for the British Masters weight lifting comp in March but this had to be put on hold. She provided the required treatment and made sure I understood, in layman's terms, what the issues were. I got exercises to complete at home and after about 4 sessions my knee was pain free. I still try and see Sophie every 6 weeks or so for any little niggles to stop anything getting worse. I have qualified for this years masters again with a few lovely new PBs. Thanks Sophie for your help and advice."
Nicole - it's a pleasure to work with you and we are really excited to see what 2020 brings for you!
In October, the SV events team had the absolute pleasure of working at the OCR World Championships at Kelvedon Hatch near Brentwood for the second consecutive year!
And what an epic four days it was!
Sandra Sawyer, OCRWC Partnerships Director, had these kind words to say about SV:
“For the past two years, the dynamic and highly skilled SV Sports Therapy team has been an integral part of our close-knit OCRWC family. We couldn’t have asked for a more qualified group of dedicated, knowledgeable and caring professionals to provide treatment services to the athletes while they competed. Their exceptional staff and services will be sorely missed at the 2020 OCRWC in Vermont.”
We are so much more than just a sports injury clinic - we really do care about our clients and care about getting them better as quickly as possible so they can return to the sport they love. And we really do work as a team at SV.
A big thank you to Stuart and Yasmin for allowing us to help you!
Just a quick note to thank Annalie for her treatment with our daughter Yasmin over the past five weeks, helping her rehabilitation from a broken ankle back to full recovery and playing football again.
Yasmin (and ourselves as parents) were in a state of limbo after a non prescriptive appointment at a fracture clinic back in August.
Annalie has been brilliant in helping put some structure back in Yasmin's recovery, with some realistic goal setting and regaining full mobility and strength.
The reason it’s been even more important is that Yasmin plays for Spurs girls youth football team and any prolonged setback so early in the season (through pre season and onwards) would have been a detriment to her...
I have received fantastic professional treatment from all of the staff I’ve encountered at SV Sports Therapy.
I have an ongoing arthritic condition, disc bulges, painful knees, muscles and hamstrings.
The skill set is nicely spread amongst the team, Gabi and Fleur concentrating on my initial muscular/ hamstring issues associated with my condition, and with Annabel introducing me to other alternatives later on to aid further relief/ recovery and providing fantastic advice and knowledge.
I’m feeling a lot better now and understand a lot more about my condition and what to look out for.
The SV team were out in full force at the inaugural Havering Half Marathon on 6 October. Luckily for the runners, the wind and rain eased off for a couple of hours!
Sophie, Annalie and the team provided pre and post race treatment with 100% of donations going to Havering Mind. The team raised a fantastic £155!
Well done to all the runners. See you next year!
“Havering Mind was delighted to have SV Sports Therapy staff in attendance at the Havering Half Marathon. I know that they were a popular feature with our runners, who I’m sure were glad to get some TLC before and after the race! 1,500 runners signed up for the event, raising over £50,000 for Havering Mind! We look forward to welcoming them and SV Sports Therapy back in 2020!"
Congratulations to our amazing client Kay Foy who recently completed the Weymouth 70.3 Half Ironman.
Here's what she had to say about her journey with us:
"I would like to say a big thank you to Annabel for helping me this year. Annabel diagnosed my problem(s) and was able to treat them quickly and effectively. She also gave continuous encouragement. Thank you!"
He did it! Congratulations to Jason Pite who completed the Weymouth 70.3 Half Ironman on Sunday 22 September. We spoke to him today and he had this to say:
"It's been a couple of days now and what I achieved on Sunday is starting to sink in. There are many, many, many people I need to and should be thanking, especially Annabel at SV Sports Therapy, who has been fixing and keeping my body moving up to the race. I would also like to thank Harlow Running Club and Tri Club for the training and support the whole team gives to all of us who wear red and blue! And to everyone who has given me words of encouragement... Thank you!"
Amazing achievement, Jason! We will see you on Saturday for a well deserved post event sports massage.
A big thank you to the players at Harlow RUFC for taking the time to share some kinds words about SV therapists, Nicole and Fleur.
The girls have been really helpful all season, always finding time to fit players in no matter what the injury is. The work they have done should not go unnoticed, especially their work on rehab and injury prevention that has benefitted the whole squad. It’s an opinion that all the boys share.
Absolutely brilliant - they've been very helpful and give really good advice and they are all so lovely as well. Definitely a part of the team.
Nicole and Fleur give a 5 star treatment to me and all the players involved at Harlow. They work in a professional but friendly manner. They also follow up with great rehab work to make sure you are fully fit. I would highly recommend them and their treatment.
Nicole and Fleur have worked with the team over the duration of the season. The ladies played a vital role in keeping myself fit and on the...
The SV Events Team were delighted to be part of the 34th Hatfield Broad Oak 10k event on Monday 27 May. It was wonderful to see so many of our clients at the race, including those from Orion Harriers and Harlow Running Club.
Here's what the race organisers had to say about us:
"We’d like to thank SV Sports Therapy for supporting the runners at our event this year. In previous years, we have offered a sports massage service. However, Sophie and her team went above and beyond, by offering an additional taping and strapping service, which added great value and was met with a such a positive response. We look forward to partnering again in 2020!"
And we received some lovely comments on our 'pop-up' Re...
Hi Annabel, I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for all your help in getting me ready for the Essex to Amsterdam bike ride. You diagnosed the problem in no time and the treatment to fix it has been spot on. It’s been lovely dealing with you and SV Sports Therapy - I would happily recommend you to anyone.
