From the Book

In these days of intense competition in both amateur and professional athletics, there is an increasing number of injuries.

Homeopathy and Acupressure do not supplant the normal therapy, but homeopathic remedies are usually speedier in action and more effective than the usual drug therapy.

In addition there is no risk of undesirable effects which can often occur after the administration of orthodox drugs.

It can be fairly claimed that homoeopathy gives earlier relief from shock and pain, and quicker and more lasting healing of sprains, fractures and other injuries.

The manipulations of the trainer, based on the sound principles of restoring position and function at the earliest moment, are not called into question.

It will be found, however, that homeopathic treatments plus the use of acupressure, complement them and provide speedy recovery.

Certain injuries and conditions have a habit of cropping up in sport and each particular sport has its own collection of regular injuries. With this in mind the book is divided into separate chapters, each concentrating on a particular sport.

Phyllis Speight and her husband Leslie were lay-people in the UK who carried on a practice, ran a publishing business and taught many courses. They were two of the many responsible for keeping homeopathy alive in the UK during the 1940s and 1950s.
