Professional and experienced support with you every step of the way

Our team of Osteopaths will help you through whatever an Ultra Marathon throws at you. We offer a combination of treatment and support for each of our runners:

  • Manual therapy - Hands-on techniques to loosen joints and tissue (not clicking)
  • High velocity thrusts (HVT) - Specific joint mobilisation techniques (clicking)
  • Sports Taping - Ligament support from sprains, muscle function replacement
  • Sports Massage - Supporting recovery and helping sooth sore tissues
  • Stretching advice - finding the right combination of movements to soothe sore tissue
  • Nutritional and hydration advice - Help keeping you fueled, salted and powered each day
Anyone can learn to do these techniques, the trick is knowing what to use and when especially in an ultra. This is where an Osteopath comes into their own. We spend 4-5 years studying and practicing a plethora of techniques for the whole of the body, rather than isolating ourselves on a specific areas.

Injury Management - Crisis averted

A well prepared run can go from smashing it to a complete standstill within moments. We have heard too many story from our grateful runners, who we have helped back into the race from a potential DNF.


Here's Jennah talking about an old injury rearing it's head on day 2. It didn't take long to get Jennah's hip and Achilles sorted and back to the start line for the next day. We're very happy to have helped keep Jennah on the course and keep that troublesome injury away.

Your own Sports Massage therapist each day every day

Yes it's sore, but it can make such a difference. Whether you're looking for a PB, podium or just don't want to hurt as much this can be the difference. All our Osteopaths are sports massage trained and have worked with sports people within their normal clinics. They know what you put your body through.
Waking up feeling fresh is almost unimaginable on a Ultra Marathon, but it can happen with a little support and some firm hands!

Sport tape to the rescue - Replacing muscle function

Guy was about to pull out of the race due to persistent sharp pain every time he lifted his leg. It was the end of day 3 and the hardest day was next, 72 km on loose sand. As you can imagine there is a lot of knee lifting during an ultra marathon, let alone dealing with the loose sand. This taping prevented Guy's leg moving too far backwards which was over stretching sore and sensitive tissue. 

"I don't think I would have been able to complete the race without a considerable amount of tape and strapping. Once the taping was on finished I felt immediately better. IT goes to show that when muscles stop working, you can simply replace them with tape!".
