Tom Goom United Kingdom

Tom Goom is a chartered Physiotherapist with over a decade of experience. He qualified from Oxford Brookes University in 2002 with a BSc (hons) in Physiotherapy. Since then he has gained a wealth of knowledge and skills working in a variety of clinics in the UK and overseas.

Tom ran a chronic pain programme in Brighton, specialising in management of neck and back pain and he has an interest in managing long-term conditions such as, hypermobility, CRPS or chronic pain. He is a qualified acupuncturist and very much a “hands on” physio who values the importance of self-management and home exercise programmes.

Tom became a running injury specialist in 2012 and has gained a worldwide reputation in the sports medicine community following the growth of his website – www.running-physio.com. Tom started the site in 2012 and since then it’s had over a million visitors! He’s written for Running Fitness, Cycling Weekly, Kinetic Revolution and a host other online sports sites and magazines.

Tom now teaches other therapists on his popular Running Repairs Course and presents regularly around the country on a number of running related topics. His specialist areas of interest include running gait analysis and treatment of tendinopathy (previously called ‘tendinitis’) which is very common in sports men and women.

While Tom does specialise in treating runners he is still very active in treating all manner of conditions in athletes and non-athletes alike.
