Take control of your pain and get back in the game
No matter whether you play rugby for pleasure or you’re a professional, we understand the frustration and disappointment you feel when you suffer pain, experience a one-off injury or endure a recurring problem. Unfortunately, this stuff’s pretty much par for any rugby player’s course, but it needn’t hinder you in the long-term. Even if you’re lucky enough to be pain-free right now, it may be that you’re training for a big match or simply want to improve your performance? Either way, we understand and you’re now in the right place.

Work with a rugby specialist
You can read all about the personal journeys our therapists took to becoming specialist rugby physios below. In a nutshell, our dedicated therapists are trained and specialised in the treatment of rugby injuries, rehabilitation after rugby injuries and rugby treatment techniques. We have extensive experience in treating rugby players as well as sharing a strong personal interest in the sport.
In short, we really “get” rugby players and their needs and motivations, and are exceptional at the treatment of complex rugby problems and recurring injuries in particular. We work closely with our biomechanics specialist and nutritionist and together take a truly global view of every rugby player we treat, giving you the best possible chances of playing at the top of your game.
The way we treat you
We’ll accurately assess your posture to help pinpoint the stresses that your rugby style might be putting on your body. Things we look at typically include imbalance in your muscular system, your efficiency and your functional ability. All of this information not only helps us get you on a track to being pain-free, it enables us to share tactics with you that you can use to develop a new, real and workable strategy to boost your performance and reduce your risk of time off the pitch. Our goal is to get you back in the game as quickly and as safely as possible.
