We assess all types of injuries and movement problems. Whether your problem was caused through sport, a leisure activity or at work, we can most likely solve it and get you back to normal in a short amount of time.
We specialize in Running injuries as this was my background, but I have also worked in Football and Rugby. Saying that, a lot of my clients do not participate in sport at all.
Our clients are both male and female, young (children generally over 8 years old) and old (oldest client to date was 92). As long as you can communicate, we should be able to help.
Whether you have injured yourself playing sport or from a work or leisure activity, you will first undergo an assessment. First we will take an in-depth history of your current problem and any previous issues you may have had. This part is THE most important as something in your history will guide us into what to look for. Something will either have happened or changed so please don’t think anything is irrelevant. This part can take up most of the first session.
We will then take your personal details and health background plus get your consent to continue. Next up will be a mix of postural and movement assessments. How you move is very important!
We’ll then get you on the couch and perform various muscle tests. We use a testing procedure called NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT™) to determine what is not working correctly and then use various techniques to resolve your problem. This may include various forms of massage, stretching and exercises.
You will be given homework to carry out – this is very important for you to adhere to. You will also be advised about a return appointment and how many sessions you will likely need, although this can’t be accurately predicted.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How many sessions will it generally take?
A: This depends on each individual issue but you should expect to attend 3-4 sessions. Most minor muscular problems may take less. More complex issues can take longer. It also depends on your adherence to take on board our advice, such as rest and doing rehab exercises. Surgical rehabilitation can take many weeks or months
Q: What injuries do you generally deal with?
A: Most often it is muscular problems. Strained calf or hamstrings, pain in low back, hips, neck or shoulders. Also common are movement restrictions of joints. We deal with a lot of running injuries such as Plantar Fasciitis of the foot, muscle strains of the lower legs, hip and back. We also have a lot of experience with football and rugby injuries which can involve ligament sprains of ankles, knees and shoulders.
A lot of non-sporting injuries are back and neck pain from sitting at a desk or driving for long hours.
Q: I’ve been to Physiotherapists before. Few test and often only use machines for treatment. Is this the same for you?
A: Absolutely not! As mentioned above, we always test vigorously before treating. A lot of my clients appreciate the fact that 99.9% of treatment with us is ‘hands-on’. Also, I am not a physio’, I am a Sports Therapist so nearly all our work is hands-on. I have studied specific courses on massage, muscle testing, rehab and personal testing
