Simple solutions to injury and training problems

"Hi Gary, just a quick note to let you know how I have got on with the formthotics I got from you. Myself and a friend had planned a 3.5hour run for last night. I was a bit sceptical before the run about how I would go with blisters etc. However with new shoes a full size smaller than previous pairs, the formthotics from you and new thin running socks my feet were great, no problems at all which is amazing and a first - I am so relieved. Having come through that run with nothing other than tired legs I am going to commit myself to the Rotorua marathon. Thanks for you advice, I might have spent a small fortune lately but to run for over 3 hours and not even a hint of sore feet is well worth the $$ for me."

Gary Moller comments:This keen female runner and cyclist in training for a marathon was suffering badly from a number of foot problems for which there seemed to be no easy solutions. Her prospects of making the start line for the Rotorua Marathon in good condition were diminishing by the day. As you can gather she is now a very satisfied customer.

As is often the case with most injuries of non-violent causation, the solutions can be remarkably simple and almost always of the "self-help" kind. Seldom, if ever, does a drug, injection, scalpel or expensive orthotic resolve the problem. Most often the solutions lie in a person's training structure, their coach, doing corrective exercises, small adjustments to their equipment and even just changing one's shoes, socks and inner soles!

If you have injury or training issues that bother you, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will do my best to assist with finding a lasting solution.
