About

Open 7 days a week, we specialise in the management of sporting injuries; including injury assessment, treatment, rehabilitation – planning and delivering sport specific personalised rehabilitation programmes. Sports therapy is the treatment of injuries by physical methods including massage and exercise rather than drugs or surgery.

 

We work to improve people’s sporting performance from an injured state to a non-injured state. Equally treatments and techniques work on non-athletes too, it may be that your improvement in performance is to walk down the stairs pain free! We also encourage maintenance treatments to keep you on the right track, a bit like an MOT this way any niggles can be dealt with before they become a bigger problem.
