“Following a dislocated shoulder snowboarding 2 years ago, I have tried to find a relief to the constant pain I have suffered ever since. I have seen two doctors, an osteopath, received a course of painful cortisone injections along with doctor-approved physiotherapy.

Being very disillusioned with the treatment, I had received up until then. I approached Christian at Snowfit as he was specialised in treating Snowsports trauma. Over the course of four treatment sessions (which included stretching, massage, ultrasound and exercise programs that were tailored to my injury and recovery progress) I have never felt better. My shoulder, which was unable to function over 90 degrees has full movement again. The constant sharp pain I would feel whenever I lifted it up has disappeared and the strength in my arm is now back to a level it was before my injury.

Christian has an excellent manner, taking time to both listen to your concerns and explain every conceivable thing he will be doing to ensure your full recovery.

I would highly recommend Christian to anyone with an injury that requires rehabilitation or long lasting recovery as I have never felt better.” M.K

“I came into the store with my son last Friday for a new pair of snowboarding boots. With hypersensitivity, hypermobility and Ehlers Danos so getting the right boots is really important. He loves snowboarding but after half an hour the pain in his feet was getting too much. After his first time on the slopes with his new boots and custom insoles he reported no pain or discomfort at all (first time ever and with a big grin). Christian was an absolute star and so professional. A big thank you from me but especially from S and his feet.” S&A

“I contacted Christian for an appointment after experiencing worsening pain in my left sacroiliac joint, lower back and reduced mobility. I had severe pain in my lower back, with episodes of stabbing pain into my left buttock and thigh on activity and movement. My lower back had stiffened up with muscle spasm due to the pain. I was unable to work or take part in any of my usual activities.

At the initial appointment, Christian carried out a thorough assessment, and explained in detail his findings, released most of the muscle spasm using manual techniques (mobilisation & massage) and recommended exercises and stretches that I could carry out at home.

I attended several appointments with Christian, and had noticeable improvement after every session, with both a reduction in pain and improved function & mobility.

Christian had an excellent understanding of my back problem and work requirements, and was able to set goals and exercises to enable me to return to work, and be confident that my lower back was stronger than previously. He set clear goals with me which allowed me to gradually restart my physical activities i.e. Pilates, walking and cycling.

Once I had attended my last treatment session, I received a detailed exercise and advice programme, which I can follow and refer to long term. I have recommended Christian to several people, and will definitely return for treatment in the future, if and when I feel necessary.

Thank you for all the help and advice.” A.C

“Some time ago I visited Snowfit to purchase some clothing and was surprised and intrigued to find that the company has an ‘in house’ physiotherapist, Christian Simonsen. I had been suffering for some time from severe pain in my right hip when walking as well as sleeping. The experience I had had in the past with physiotherapy was not a happy one.   However, after a conversation with Christian I fortunately decided that I would give it another go. I couldn’t have been happier with my treatment!   Not only did he diagnose my problem straight away but after only four sessions I am now completely pain free and have had no recurrence. His professionalism, mannerism and knowledge is second to none and I recommend him unreservedly!” E. C.
