Jackie was recommended to me by my orthopaedic surgeon who was treating a chronic shoulder problem of many years standing. I had received repeated steroid injections that had only partially (and temporarily) relieved the symptoms. Right from the start it was clear that her knowledge of anatomy, sports injuries and their rehabilitation was outstanding. The results have in my case been outstanding, I would never consider using anybody else.

I have been working with Jackie since January 2017 with the emphasis on the exploration of fundamental movement skills with a group of University athletes and Welsh Junior International sprinters. This service has been commissioned by Welsh Athletics (National Governing Body for Wales). 


Sharon Heveran. HJ Ireland: Athletics coach:

During the 2006 season I suffered a severe ankle injury as a result of an unfortunate training accident. This resulted in my having to miss out on a portion of my competition season. An experienced Olympic coach advised me to see Jackie Zaslona about the injury. I went to see Jackie and not only did she fix the current injury, she managed to diagnose a previous recurring injury. After 3 months of rehabilitation and carefully arranged treatments my ankle was in perfect working order.

Whilst I was competing in many of the major championships and during training camps, I always found that Jackie’s understanding of my event, being a former javelin thrower, was an undeniable factor in assisting my recovery from the various niggles that are part and parcel of an international athletes day to day life.
