ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Terry Smith MSc BSc MSCP
I was born, raised, live and work in London, England. My professional background is in Physiotherapy. In my clinics I still treat the full spectrum of neuromusculoskeletal conditions from chronic pain to ankle sprains, headaches to metatarsalgia, and everything in between. But what I really like is running and treating running injuries. Along with my Physiotherapy qualifications and post-graduate training I have a Sports Science degree, I’m a certified barefoot running coach and a UK Athletics leader in running fitness. I’ve worked in many different areas of the profession, from our wonderful but under-resourced NHS to some of the biggest corporate companies in the world. I’ve worked in gyms, sports teams, the British military, and even people’s own homes. When I’m not in clinic I’m running my website www.londonrunningpt.com, which I set up to help people improve their running, but the underlying goal of the site is to get people active and healthy. I also write the odd article for health and fitness magazines, and at the time of writing this book I am the resident physiotherapist for the Women’s Running UK online magazine.
