Who We've Worked With

At The Performance Clinic we've worked with a number of athletes and organisations, including:

How We Work

We Have 3 Main Goals
To Identify the root cause of your pain

Through a thorough assessment we listen to you, analyse your movement, measure strength and flexibility, feel your joints and soft tissues to identify structural and positional stress patterns.

To ensure you fully understand why your body is complaining.

We want to empower you with knowledge so you feel capable to self manage your body. We are here to support you and progress you. By committing to our advice and rehabilitation programme you will be taking positive steps towards your recovery.

To provide expert treatment

We pride ourselves on working at expert level providing the highest quality of care. All our therapists are Seniors, have been on extensive professional development courses and we use the most up to date protocols based on evidence based practice alongside our extensive experience working in our field.
