Achillies Heal

Helene Running Up A Hill

Perhaps best known for winning the inaugural Dragon's Back Race in 1992, a 5 day, 200 mile ultra across the mountainous spine of Wales, Helene Whitaker has translated her running experiences into her own physiotherapy practice, Achilles Heal.

Based at Ashville College in Harrogate, Helene offers access to the onsite Leisure Centre complete with multi gym, indoor training area and swimming pool. Rehabilitation programmes and alternative fitness regimes can be constructed to further enhance treatment outcomes and return to full activity, be that work or play.

Speaking to Northern Running Guide, Helene told us why she set up her practice: "I think it is really to reflect my own personal experience. I ruptured my Achilles tendon and was told I would never race again. I managed to return and have competed for Great Britain and in ultra distance events since. My real focus in on sports injuries and I'm always looking to offer practical solutions to manage acute and persistent problems, with treatment involving advice on rehabilitation and return to activity."

On her approach to physiotherapy, Helene said she likes to keep the patient as involved as possible: "Its important to take the time to ensure patients fully understand their condition, and have the opportunity to ask questions and be totally involved in their treatment, whatever their age."
