Hi everyone, I wonder if anyone can help please. My daughter has injured her groin

and needs to see a specialist dance physio. We would normally see the brilliant physio  team at Tring Park where she is a CBA student. However they have broken up for the summer. Does anyone have any personal recommendations for us please. 

We live in Hertfordshire but London or anywhere within a hours travel would be ok. Thanks so much.

I can recommend Nicky Ellis for Osteopathy. She works at Central, LCDS and us the physio for Strictly amongst other schools and companies. She has a clinic in London and is just wonderful.

Shirley Hancock is second to none, especially when it comes to diagnosing injuries.  She doesn't work on Mondays and gets very booked up, but is well worth seeing if you can get an appointment with her.

There is an extremely good lady based here in Brighton called Jo Avison ....she is wonderful and completely different to anyone else I have seen over time and did wonders for my hip flexor injury ( also hurts in the groin area) a couple of years back. But she does like to work holistically with the body as well.

She does travel so whether she works sometimes up in London I don't know but definitely goes to the USA every so often and gives courses too. 

I will see if I still have her website address or phone number.

There is a Thameslink train through to Brighton from parts of Herts now but whether the timetable is working....who knows!!🤔😳

Thanks to everyone for your recommendations. My dd has now been diagnosed with a small labral tear!!!! Has anyone else had experience of this injury mending itself with rest and rehabilitation rather than  going down the surgery route!

Eeeek! Who did you see in the end? I’m afraid I can’t comment on the healing of a labrum tear other than to say take it very seriously. For other followers on the thread who don’t know what this is - the labrum is a bit of cartilage that goes around the edge of the hip socket. When the labrum tears, sometimes the torn bit gets a bit loose and can catch in the joint. Hip labrum tears are quite common in professional ballet dancers of a certain age due to wear and tear, but this is an injury that sadly is becoming more and more common in adolescent dancers as they strive for the ‘instagram-trendy’ extreme flexibility.

 

I wish your DD a thorough recovery and hopefully she’ll be back dancing soon.
