If you have an injury from running, whether it is a sudden traumatic event or a long term chronic problem, you will be treated to a full body assessment at Enrich Physio. This is because running is such a full-body activity that – for example – your achilles tendon pain or ‘runners knee’ may be caused by problems around the hips and pelvis. Once we have completed the assessment we will then tailor your treatment and exercise rehabilitation to your individual training regime to achieve fast, effective results.
Enrich Physio Consultant Physiotherapist Richard Walker also has an Honours Degree in Applied Sports Science from The University of Edinburgh. This gives him far greater insights into the biomechanics, nutrition, psychology and rehabilitation of sports injuries.
Enrich Physio is housed inside Braid Hills Golf Centre (Edinburgh’s main golf driving range) and so naturally we see a great deal of golfers. These golfers vary from juniors to adults, male or female and recreational to tour players.
We work in close association with Golf Fit Ltd who are specialist strength and conditioning for golfers. With our collective knowledge of the biomechanics of the golf swing, it never takes long to get to the bottom of any problem and we can then offer specific rehabilitation and manual therapy based on the golfers individual weaknesses and physical barriers.
Enrich Physio’s director and consultant physiotherapist Richard Walker played football professionally and has worked with many football clubs as their physio – currently Brechin City.

Richard also has an Honours Degree in Applied Sports Science from The University of Edinburgh. This gives him far greater insights into the biomechanics, nutrition, psychology and rehabilitation of sports injuries.
Richard played professional football for over ten years for Alloa Athletic, Brechin City and Berwick Rangers, making over 300 first team starts – so he has experienced his fair share of injuries in the past!
