Event Clinics
Events clinics are designed to promote and facilitate physiotherapy and first aid provisions.

Offering event support in a multitude of events, from half day races to stage races: in the most diverse and remotest of locations and environments across the globe.

Here at CJ Physiotherapy, we have travelled extensively and worked with various event organisers. We understand the terrains that events can bring with them, the risks that may be encountered and the importance of getting help and support from a healthcare professional as soon as able.

We work alongside the organisers of events to ensure both the event and participants receive an exclusive, tailored physiotherapy package. Offering physiotherapy provisions to a wide variety of sporting and charity events, weekend retreats, tours, treks and training sessions.

We can cater for half or full day events, stage races, endurance events, charity events, sports & charity matches, yoga retreats and many more.

Corinne was part of the official race crew; making sure I would be in a fit and ridable state the next morning, no matter how badly battered I came in. I had the inevitable “hanging upside down from a tree on a cliff face” crash, and what looked like a sprain was diagnosed (correctly) by Corinne. I would go as far as saying that without the sessions and the personal attention, I would definitely not have finished the stages. Her personal and friendly style of working, is to her credit and for the benefit of her “patients”.

Corinne is the quintessential mark and hard worker that a mountain bike race needs. She was the official physiotherapist for the 13th Hero MTB Himalaya – one of the hardest races in the world and she did a fine job of making sure the riders were well recovered after each stage . Not just that but her super awesome and pleasing personality brought such a good vibe at the camp – always willing to help and care.

Ashish Sood

Race Communication Officer and Organiser, MTB Himalaya

First and foremost Corinne is a very good communicator, she is able to listen attentively and provide explanations on what the problem is, treat it accordingly, and also what can be done in my own time to recover for the next stage of the race. All these traits together with Corinne’s professional behavior make her a very good physiotherapist

Neil Reynolds
Rumble In The Jungle 2017

Corinne was extremely helpful in my ability to soldier on through a 4-day endurance saga called Rumble in the Jungle.  Her professionalism and expertise was evident when I had some trouble with my knees.  She easily pinpointed the problem areas, worked through them with me and ultimately helped me perform at my best.  Thanks for all the support and golden hands!
