Expert knee rehab from a New Zealand International Footballer!
One of the most complex joints in the body, the shoulder is powerKnee injuries are common across many different sports - running,football, and skiing to name just a few. Heavy tackles or twists can cause trauma to the tendons and ligaments, while chronic overuse and improper technique may also result in problems. If your knee is sore, it doesn’t necessarily mean that’s where the issue originates from! When things go wrong in one area of your body, other parts compensate to avoid pain, and that puts pressure on different areas. This is why it is crucial that a specialist physio should analyse your whole body to find and treat the underlying issue, enabling you to get better for the long term!
As an ex New Zealand football international, Lauren Taylor has experienced both sides of elite performance. In fact, Lauren tore her anterior cruciate ligament in her teenage years, providing valuable personal knowledge of this specialist injury. She studied physiotherapy at the University of Otago, qualifying in 2007. Since then, she has built up years of international experience, working in top clinics in Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the UK. Lauren has worked in rugby and football in New Zealand with many acute injuries; and has also successfully treated lots of knees that had been problematic for a long time. Lauren is a keen Pilates teacher – which helps, as a strong core is vital for optimal knee function!

What I do
Everything in your body is connected.
An injury in one place can lead to compensation and further injury in another. So when you feel pain, you need to know where the trouble stems from. At Victory, which is just two minutes from Liverpool Street and Moorgate, I find, analyse and tackle the cause of your pain, rather than just looking at the symptoms. Once I've located the problem, I can help you get better and better. No temporary fixes - I only deal in long-term solutions.
