We have a Running Clinic with video analysis which allows our physios to assess your running style and suggest changes to facilitate either a return to running following childbirth or to manage persistent injuries.

We have an busy pessary clinic with all physios fitting pessaries. We have an extensive range of fitting kits which allow the patient to trial the pessary by going for a run or a walk to ensure the pessary does not dislodge. We have a steriliser also for the pessaries. We hold a large stock of the most commonly used pessaries.
