Sports Physiotherapy is concerned with the early and accurate diagnosis and treatment of musculo-skeletal injuries. The treatment goal is to rehabilitate the injury as quickly as possible and ensure an early return to functional activity or sport. Sports physiotherapy also has a role in the prevention of injury.

We receive referrals from the British Olympic Association and English Institute of Sport, Sports coaches and Consultant Orthopaedic surgeons for the biomechanical assessment of sports injuries. Many Olympic and GB athletes recommend us. They include for example - Olympic Rowers - Sarah Winkless, GB Triathletes - Jeremy Laming, National legend, Downhill Mountain Biker -Rob Warner, former Olympic Hockey player -Tammy Miller, England students Rugby players, GB Skiers and so on. We also receive referrals from GB and England doctors, sports coaches and physiotherapists.

Reviews and Testimonials

  • Thomas W

    I can’t thank Active viii enough for great treatment on my back, which I injured rowing. He manipulated my spine and used an "instrument" to stretch out and massage my tight back muscles. 

  • Vicky G

    Thanks also to Active viii for great pilates core stability treatment for my back. Superb!

    After years of living in pain, I would like to say a big thank you to Active viii for their treatment to my neck and shoulder, both pre and post-surgery. Thanks to them, I now have a much better quality of life. D
