Sports Therapy

Remedial massage at our Andover centre

A sports therapist is a health professional who must be a part of a professional body to provide therapy services. Sports therapists have the ability, knowledge and skills to assess and treat sporting injuries and other medical conditions. They treat pain and injury through manual therapy and rehabilitation.
