PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING RE CHANGES TO HOW WE OPERATE:
To ensure that we can continue to provide our services whilst minimising Covid associated risks, we have made a few changes to the way we operate, which reflect the continually evolving guidelines as stipulated by the government and our governing bodies.
All patients must have an online triage before attending the clinic for thier face to face appointment. This is a requirement by our governing body to ensure we are reducing close contact time and screening for Covid-19. To complete this, a member of the team will call you before the appointment to go through our triage/screening process which should take no longer than 10 minutes. You are also welcome to call the clinic on booking the appointment to go through this over the phone at a time that suits you.
Face to face appointment
Our availability for face to face appointments is typically one weeks time. To ensure patient-therapist continuity, we encourage you to book your return visit with the same therapists, who will likely have one-two days a week in which they are available for clinic appointments.
We will be offering sports massage appointments, these are approximately 30 minutes.
We continue to offer our remote injury conusltations and follow-ups which includes a personalised home-based rehabilitation plan. Your recovery is important to us, and so should you wish to engage in the service, we can ensure your recovery period is as short as possible.
What do we do?
Sports therapy and rehabilitation is an aspect of healthcare that specialises in musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. Our clinic focuses on the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of our clients back to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports-specific fitness, regardless of age and ability. We see a variety of cases, such as novice runners suffering with knee pain and non-sporting clients post-hip replacement, as well as experienced athletes.
How do we do it?
Our personalised rehabilitation plans and follow-up sessions with the same therapist provide the continuity our clients need to progress week on week. Our team is made up of therapists who are currently studying, or have graduated from accredited BSc (Hons) Sports Therapy and BSc (Hons) Rehabilitation in Sport and Exercise degree programmes. Students work under supervision by staff holding professional membership, insurance and a license to practice in the UK.
During an initial consultation a medical history and assessment of your current injury or condition will be taken. This will shape your treatment which may include any of our services.
Our services include exercise-based rehabilitation, manual treatment (soft tissue massage and mobilisations), anti-gravity treadmill*, running gait analysis*, electrotherapy (ultrasound and laser) and kinesiology taping. *Please note when booking if required. Our clinic is open to members of the public and we welcome all ages and ability. We can help with a variety of conditions such as back pain, sciatica, frozen shoulder, plantar fasciitis, quadricep/ hamstring tears, runners knee and rotator cuff issues. You’ll pay £15 to see a student therapist and £30 to see a graduate therapist, due to their additional experience. Discounts apply for Marjon staff & students. Marjon staff may be eligible for free sessions via Marjon Balance.

“ “I can highly recommend this place. The staff and students are very professional and friendly and the facilities and services they offer are great value. If you love sport and need advice or just need your muscles sorting, give them a call.”
“Shannon has helped me massively. I had a nasty fall 4 months ago and wasn't getting more improvement myself. They are very detailed and methodical about treatment they give. Definitely recommend these guys if you are needing help.” “
