Nicky Francis, who has been a Chartered Physiotherapist since 1994, has been a keen runner all her life and has a special interest in treating runners and helping them to keep running. Now at the age of 50, Nicky shows no signs of slowing down! She runs Marathons, does Cani-Cross, cycles, weight trains, has reached a Dan grade in Karate and is a regular skier. Nicky believes in ‘getting fit to run’ rather than ‘run to get fit’!
