Whether you’re a professional athlete or someone who enjoys active pursuits as a leisure activity, sport can fulfil a fundamental role in your life, contributing to your overall health and self-worth.

If you do participate in a professional sport, you need to maintain peak performance: be ‘race-ready’ for competitions, ensure you exercise in such a way that you avoid sports injury, and recover from any problems which do occur as quickly as possible.

At Hands That Heal, we have extensive experience in helping some of Britain’s top athletes maintain their physical fitness, often against the highest possible stakes.

We take a rounded approach to looking beyond the immediate sports injury, at other physical factors which may be contributing to the problem. For example, if someone is suffering from left-sided ankle pain, we may treat the right side too, to preserve the strength of the whole ankle. Our strong understanding of anatomy and biomechanics enables us to look at your body in the round and analyse how everything is working together, for optimum results.

We can work within your established training plan and adapt it in a way tailored to you, to help you prevent and recover from injury, with minimal loss of performance.

Proactive and reactive physiotherapy support for individuals and teams during major competitions is another of our specialities.
