Hi,

About three weeks ago, towards the end of a long run, I started to get a lot of pain in the upper part of my left leg quads. I took a week off running and applied ice, kept my leg eleveated as much as possible, and just x-trained and did weight training every other day.

Since then I've been trying to get back into my running training but each time I run the pain gradually builds up and becomes pretty unbearable after an hour to ninety minutes. I have the Berlin Marathon coming up in three weeks but, having been forced to cut short my final twenty mile run after ninety minutes, I am now starting to think that there is no way that I will be fit to run it.

As the injury certainly does not seem to be getting better by itself, I am now thinking that I should probably see a sports injury specialist. However, having been a bit disappointed by non-sports injury specialist physiotherapists in the past, I would be very grateful if anyone could recommend someone who specialises in these sort of injuries in the London area (ideally not too far from Docklands)...
