What Runners Say About RunningNorthEast Services:

  • 34min 10k Runner From Gateshead Harriers

        

    I feel like I'm part of the RunningNorthEast family now as I have had treatment with Jason, James and Andrew to leave no stone unturned in my running in order to best recover and stay healthy. I've seen Jason for over 5 years now and have had regular sports massage from him. He provides a quality service and always makes my legs feel refreshed afterward. I already recommend him to anyone who wants a sports massage! James provided me with a very thorough foot examination where he identified that I had a biomechanical dysfunction and prescribed custom made orthotics which I have been wearing everyday since and have allowed me to continue training pain free. The feel like extra cushioning moulded to my feet and again I would recommend the custom orthotics to anyone. I went to see Andrew with a knee problem and after a thorough assessment he identified the problem area and provided me with stretches and exercises to strengthen the area and ease the knee pain. I think because all of the guys at RunningNorthEast are runners themselves, they understand the needs and demands of other runners and have worked together fantastically in my case. Thanks lads!

  • Team GB 1500m & 29min 45sec 10k Runner

        

    I started seeing Andrew at RunningNorthEast for Physio treatment in 2012 after suffering several major injuries whilst competing at National and International level athletics. I have seen several Internationally renouned physiotherapists throughout my running career and Andrew is among the best I have worked with. His in-depth knowledge of sport, sports science, physiotherapy and wider sports medical practices combined with his relentless determination to get my body rid of all of my long term and chronic problems has led me to be back to the best form of my career and setting personal bests at age 30 - and with continued support hopefully with many more to come in the next few years. I have seen Jason for regular massage for well over 5 years now and he does a great job at getting rid of all of the soreness from hard training and keeping niggles at bay by identifying over used areas - he has worked well with Andrew at identifying which area to work on in order to keep me out running and off the sidelines! I am also currently sporting my favorite pair of orthotics, throughout my career I have seen several UK leading podiatrists in order to have custom insoles made to reduce the risk of injury and improve my running efficiency. The current pair I have from James are absolutely fantastic and because they are made in-house they are ready immediately with no waiting around with minor adjustments for comfort made before you leave the practice. I'm so glad that all of the guys are working together for RunningNorthEast to provide a service for runners, by runners.

  • Run Geordie Run - Running Around The World

        

    Jason Stobbs played a pivotal role on the Run Geordie Run Support Team during the run across Australia in 2013. Not only did Jason provide 1st class sports therapy treatment, his professional and thorough approach to his work undoubtedly helped to keep me injury free during his 3 weeks on the team. Jason always applied the appropriate type and intensity of treatment for the current environment, daily mileage and situation we found ourselves in. Away from his core skills, he helped motivate, boost morale and kept the run ticking along in a safe and secure way. It's no coincidence that Jason's name was first on the support team rota for the 3400 mile run across Europe from Lisbon to Istanbul. Jason's stint on the team covers 300 miles through the Alps which takes in 11 Tour de France climbs. To keep a runner in top condition during that part of the run will be no easy task but if anyone can do it, Jason can.

  • 1 hour 17 min Half-Marathoner From Gateshead Harriers

        

    As a competitive club athlete on distances up to and including the marathon, the addition of a regular sports massage to my schedule has helped me in both, preparation for and recovery from, training and races. Before this was added into my schedule I found I was a lot more susceptible to injury. Jason has always been able to identify and successfully treat any possible issues whilst giving advice on any changes to current training plans, which is vital in the build up to the marathon. Treatment does not end in there though with advice given on any additional stretching or mobility work also given. I would thoroughly recommend Jason Stobbs as a massage therapist to anyone from a sportsperson to someone not as active.

  • Leeds University Athletics Club Half Marathon Runner

        

    I was experiencing a pain in my foot when running and it was recommended to me by one of my running friends that I see James for a Biomechanical Assessment. I booked into see James which I did online and I found this was very easy to use. During my appointment James was very professional and was able to explain what was going on which really helped. A manual assessment of my foot function identified a potential cause of my injury. I then underwent a series of tests standing and walking on a high tech pressure plate. The assessment was extremely thorough and I was prescribed Orthotics and was given a series of exercises to improve my running technique. I was measured and fitted with a pair of custom made orthotics during my appointment which felt great straight away. At the end of the appointment I was given information on the orthotics and on the exercises I was recommended to do. I would recommend James to anyone who requires Podiatry assessment, his friendly and measured approach made it easy for me to ask questions and understand my own foot problem.

  • 67min Half-Marathoner, 30min 06sec 10k Runner & Leeds City Harrier

        

    As an athlete who runs a lot of miles in order to compete in 10ks and cross country, I find I regularly pick up over use injuries and minor. Since returning to the North East after my time at Birmingham University I have regularly seen Andrew. His holistic approach is what gets me on the start line in the best shape possible. Without his treatment and advice I wouldn't be able to train as effectively as I do. He's incredibly friendly but also highly professional.

    I have have depended on physiotherapy treatment when home in the North East from Andrew at RunningNorthEast and continue to recommend him to my runner friends in the area. He is friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. After seeing him for treatment the first time with a long standing issue, to my delight, I was on the road to recovery. Whenever I see him I come away with a clear vision of how my injury is going to be fixed and rehabilitated

  • Sub-19min 5k and Sub 40min 10k Runner & Gateshead Harrier

        

    I have been running for over 14 years and seen several physiotherapists. I've been seeing Andrew for over a year now and feel he is the most effective and efficient physio. I was injured last year and wasted money and time with others incorrectly diagnosing my injury. Andrew was very flexible in booking an appointment short notice. He is professional and approachable which makes me feel relaxed and I can ask questions throughout my session. Since seeing Andrew I recovered from injury quicker than expected and still have input to work on prevention. I also feel he is affordable for the experience Andrew has. I've always been told about the benefits of having regular massages but never had the confidence to book one. I was recommended Jason through Gateshead harriers, before our appointment he was very professional and made me feel very relaxed. Since then, I've never looked back! Jason is a very experienced masseuse and knows where to focus on. Jason is trained on using kindistic tape and I've seen the benefits of using this. Highly recommend!
