Garstang physio Simon Eason has had the opportunity to work on a world stage this summer.

Simon, who runs Garstang Physiotherapy Clinic with his wife, Lynley, was chosen to work as part of the medical team at the World Athletics and Para Athletics Championships in London.

He was part of a medical team including approximately 200 sports medicine doctors, GPs, osteopaths, chiropractors, sports masseurs and other physios.

“It’s a great privilege to be able to work with sportsmen and women at that level,” Simon said.

“Their commitment, training and dedication are an inspiration and we are very lucky that as physios, we are allowed access to athletes, training venues and athlete’s accommodation and can help them in a small but very direct way with their competition.

“As well as working with athletes, it is a great opportunity to work with, and learn from, other health professionals, many of whom are very highly regarded within their professions.”
