Physio in the North East

Hi, apologies if this has been discussed before, but I can't seem to find it with the search function.

I've been having some knee trouble on the bike and after a few weeks off it's not going away, so I've decided it's probably best to seek out a physio. Does anyone have any recommendation for someone in the north east (I'm based in Durham, but am prepared to travel a bit) who knows their stuff with cycling injuries?

Cheers!

    Neville Martin is the go to guy on bike fit in the area - he's based in Team Valley. Although I think you're better off going to see your GP?

    Do you mean that a few weeks off the bike it's not going away or you're still cycling? As I had knee trouble and a bike fit sorted that - although it then gave me back trouble!

    I used Drew Coverdale at Norton Physio & Sports Injury Clinic. He was just starting out when I saw him but now has more sites. Drew wasn't cycling specific but was very good. It might be worth asking them if any have cycling experience.

    You could also ask on the Cycle Development Nort East - CDNE facebook page for a recommendation. Lots of North East cyclists on there.
  • Try Mickey Mall on, former elite rider based near Newcastle. used to race with him a bit and hes a decent chap.

    Cheers for all the suggestions. I'll look into them :)

    @markhewitt - It started on a training camp in Spain in the first week of Jan Since I got back I haven't ridden until this weekend (so 2 weeks off with no cycling) and it was still there. I don't feel it at all off the bike so I feel a bit silly going to the GP for it. I've had a bike fit previously and nothing has moved since then. It's also happened on 2 different bikes and 3 pairs of shoes so I'm not sure it's fit related, but I'll definitely think about it.

    Hi, try John Dennis at physiohaus in Jesmond, hes got a good rep and his C.V. speaks for itself!

    Cool, that's what I thought you meant. I had knee trouble and it was just simply down to my saddle being too high. It did persist off the bike but only for a short while, nothing like two weeks.

    I've used these a couple of times now through work when I've been injured, can't speak highly enough and on the door step :)
