Lucy Macdonald has 13 years experience getting rid of pain and treating the cause of injuries in professional, amateur and non-sports people including members of the GB ski team.
She is a regular contributor to health and fitness publications and has produced a number of videos. Please click on the link for an example of a video produced with Mens Fitness Magazine and her latest article in the Telegraph on ski and snowboard training.
She has always been driven by a desire to enable individuals to fulfill their optimum potential. That is why she loves treating patients and training other Physiotherapists.Lucy is known for her honest and comprehensive communication including the use of video analysis. Her experience and extensive post-graduate training enables her to provide fast pain relief and injury resolution to enable swift accomplishment of individual goals from being able to pick up the kids, sit in a long meeting or do an ironman triathlon.
She uses hand on techniques like joint manipulation, massage, acupuncture and taping, all intelligently applied to release restrictive structures and mobilise stiff joints. This is combined with advanced rehabilitation skills to strengthen the muscles that are weak but most importantly, to get them working in the correct way to treat the cause of the problem. Her mantra is “its not what you do its how you do it that counts”.
Lucy is an expert in complex conditions and injuries, and regularly gets patients better who have been unsuccessfully treated elsewhere. This includes chronic pain, inflammatory conditions and hypermobility syndromes.
She is a specialist in snowsports’ injuries and ski performance, and lived in Val D-Isere for 4 seasons where she set up PhysioVal. She has worked with BASI, trained ski instructors as well as treating members of the GB team and wrote and presented BodyTechSki DVD.

‘Lucy has made a really positive impact on my training – she’s an excellent physiotherapist.’ Ed Drake GB Ski Team
Lucy became a Chartered Physiotherapist at Liverpool University 12 years ago and still misses their sense of humour! She is equally happiest skiing in deep powder or at the opera. She is a keen runner, and completed her first marathon last year (defying her self-proclaimed “naturally terrible biomechanics!”), and enjoys dancing, yoga and walking up mountains.
