ICE physio, Jo Pollard
Hi, I'm Jo Pollard,a fully qualified FRENCH and UK Physiotherapist working in Val d'Isere experienced in injury diagnosis and biomechanical assessments. My treatments include injury rehabilitation programmes, sports massage, pilates, kinesio taping and more.
Working within most fields of sport Jo has a good understanding of a range injuries resultant from simple over use injuries, to acute sprains, soft tissue injuries and fractures.
Jo has worked with athletes and recreational athletes in most sports, as well as working in gyms and trained herself to national level. The last few years Jo has worked with strength and conditioning coaches, helping to provide strength and conditioning programmes to Olympic athletes. Get in touch whether injury related or not for further advice.
Jo uses her physiotherapy experience to develop a programme to your specific goals, whether injury related or for developing a programme to meet your sporting needs.
The laws of mechanics can be applied in the sporting context and human movement to gain a more in depth understanding of athletic performance and may help with injury prevention. Within sports or in some instances everyday tasks, biomechanics can be seen as understanding the actions of the muscle, joint and skeletal actions of the body in any given task or skill.
Ever wondered why no matter how much you practice those short turns, or work on your strength and stamina you still get fatigued in powder? Perhaps it’s down to biomechanics and poor movement patterns. Both acute and chronic injuries can cause pain and altered movement patterns
Over the years Jo has developed assessment techniques, combined with BASI training in ski and snowboarding to help identify weakness that maybe affecting your technique whilst on the hill.
If its your summer cycling and running hobbies Jo has completed courses in biomechanics of running and bike fit analysis, which combined with her physiotherapy techniques to help put a programme together to achieve your goals.
