We have a number of highly experienced physiotherapists who specialise in Sports Injury rehabilitation and have completed degrees in Sport & Exercise Science, as well as their physiotherapy degrees. The majority of our physiotherapists have worked with adults in professional sports teams and children / adolescents in elite academies. These physiotherapists have also participated in elite sport and suffered serious injuries themselves, so they are able to empathise and help with the psychological aspects as well as physical distress that follows injury. We not only aim to get our patients back to their sport as soon as possible, we also provide them with the knowledge and advice which will significantly reduce the risk of re-injury.
As well as assessing and treating a wide range of sporting injuries, we also rehabilitate athletes who have suffered life-changing injuries following serious accidents, such as road traffic collision. We intensively rehabilitate these individuals to help them return to sport.
