How we work:

Tim and Lynne are keen sports people, and know the annoyance and inconvenience of being out of action with injury. We’ve all got to the stage where a small niggle has become a big issue and instead of being a minor inconvenience, it turns into something that stops you from what you enjoy for weeks, sometimes even months.

Believe it or not, it’s better to get it sorted out sooner rather than later. Getting hands on remedial therapy, suggestions on how to correct imbalances that may be leading to your current issue, and, most importantly, not just being told to “stop what you are doing” is a powerful tool in not only preventing injury, but also getting better at what you do.

Niggles are not a good thing. Although we all train through them, occasionally that can be a bad idea, and our good intentions of exercise and the ability to participate in our chosen activity comes crashing down around our ears. We are here to help prevent that from happening through physiotherapy, intelligent training and massage.

We work with all manner of clients from many different background and problems. Throughout lockdown we have seen a high proportion of patients with back pain and shoulder pain from the new positions they are adopting in working from home. There has also been an increase in overuse injuries from running- ITBS, kneepain, hip pain and ankle pain. We tend to see people who are local to us, simply because of the lockdown- that is Padfield, Hadfield, Glossop and Hayfield, though we do see people from New Mills, Broadbottom, Whaley Bridge and Chinley on a regular basis.
