Bio

Dominic arrived in the UK in April 2001 and has spent the last 8 years working in private practices and hospitals in the London area. As a keen sports man himself his interest lead him to want to work with sports injuries and Dominic is currently in his third year of a Master's degree in Sports Physiotherapy.

He has an interest in the management of musculoskeletal injuries in the active population but also in more specialist areas of sport and is a team physiotherapist for a football club on a part-time basis. His ambition is to work in the professional sport arena full-time, so what better place to demonstrate his talents than here at Thinq Fitness. He observes that the competitive spirit seems just as ardent in the professional athlete as it is in the weekend athlete making his work in the active population just as challenging and rewarding.

  • Dominic's tips

    * Ensure you rest your muscles in-between work outs
    * Always take your Physiotherapists advice!!
    * Cross train to develop overall fitness and reduce the risk of injury

Description


Dominic starts to take a look at how we can target certain muscle groups around injured joints to aid recovery. In this video he looks at the lower limb and specifically the knee.

He is joined by Lucy to demonstrate a sequence that could also be used to add strength, for any activity.

    Hey Caroline, good to hear from you....how are you? Yes, these exercises are great for prevention of injury. Why don't you do our sit-fit workout if your legs are not too good at the moment? Let me know how you get on and what else you would like to see on the site. Lucy Case Fitness Director

    Hi,my knees are in a realy bad way. Its a problem I've had for years. The Dr's think its Artheritic and as you know there is no known cure for it. The only thing that can be done is to build the muscles around the knee. I remembered Dom and Lucys knee strength building video and I've just done the exercises given and they are not causing too much pain. Physio can take months but I'm going to do these exercises to make a start. Thanks guys!!
