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
Dominic, our resident physiotherapist, begins his series of fitness workout videos on hip health, specifically for those that have had hip replacements.
He begins the series by looking at a sequence of gentle exercises, which target the core muscles around the hip.
This is a good exercise that can be used for the strengthening of a number of different muscles. Because there are so many muscles involved with this exercise, it is important to do a slow, controlled movement to emphasize the contribution of each group. Some muscles will be doing more of the work and some muscles are working to maintain stability so that there is small injury risk.
Get your form as good as possible to get the most out of the drill. And most of all relax and enjoy it.
