The proactive approach
Prevention is better than cure. Although we can’t prevent injury (you might slip off a kerb) we can give you the help and advice to reduce the risk of getting an injury. This may include programs on muscle strengthening, improvement in flexibility as well as treatments to help while you progress.
In your first sports therapy appointment, we’ll look at your medical history, injury history, and understand any aims that you have, so we can come up with a treatment plan that works for you.
Obviously we hope that you don’t get injured but in the event that you do we are also there to help and can assess, treat and rehabilitate injuries to get back doing what you want to do whether that be gardening, walking the dog or sporting endeavours.

Frequently Asked Questions
Please find below some of our frequently asked questions about our sports therapy treatment – you can find even more FAQs in our full FAQs section.
Sports Therapy is a form of therapy which addresses musculoskeletal injuries, aches and pains and chronic injuries. A Sports Therapist can work in multiple areas and may work with people suffering from chronic pain, the professional and amateur sports person, the gardener who are injured or in pain.
We will determine the best treatment for your complaint based on a full and comprehensive assessment. The most common treatment techniques are:- Deep tissue/soft tissue massage, Joint mobilisation techniques, Stretching and lengthening, techniques Acupuncture, Trigger point therapy, Exercise therapy, Taping and strapping,
This will depend entirely on the type of injury, our assessment following your first treatment, and the rehabilitation period. This includes you putting into practice our advice for recovery, including resting.
We can’t guarantee manual therapy won’t be painful, but it’s important for you to be honest with us and tell us if it’s hurting.
We use a pain scale where 0 is you can’t feel anything, and 10 is that you’re going to hit the roof, or us! The maximum we want to reach is 7, there will be the odd occasion when it might reach an 8. If you’re concerned, tell us and we will work within those limits.
The most common side-effect is some general aching/soreness for 24-48 hours, however, most people do not experience any side effects at all.
To properly assess your alignment and posture, it is important that we be able to see nearly all of your body. Therefore, shorts and a loose-fitting t-shirt are advised. If you’re comfortable removing them, this will allow us better access for our examination.
What our patients say about us
Andy is seriously one fo the most incredible sports therapist I have ever encountered (and I have seen a lot of them). Due to a couple of injuries I have chronic back, neck and shoulder pain and seeing Andy always brought great relief. He not only delivered excellent treatment time and time again, but he went the extra mile working with other health care professionals (such as my Osteopath) to ensure they were working with one another to maximise my results.
He was always contributing to develop his skill and used a combination of massage, kinesiotape and other treatments to ensure I got pain relief and increased mobility. Andy would also give additional stretches and exercises for me to do at home so I could make the image of the treatment last longer.
Andy’s hours were great for fitting in my work schedule and having worked in a corporate environment he was acutely aware of the challenges that come with it and made sure his advice made sense in real life. Sadly I moved away from the UK, but one of the things I miss the most is Andy. I have often joked with my husband about flying him over because I can’t find anyone close to as good as hime. I can’t recommend West Berkshire Injury Clinic enough.
If you are looking for sports therapists who know their stuff and go the extra mile look no further. Having moved away from Newbury I still return for treatments and advice as I haven’t found anyone as good
