On your first visit, you receive an initial assessment where we discuss your medical history and identify any current injuries or limitations. This is followed by a physical assessment. From this information we can develop a bespoke personalised treatment and rehabilitation plan.

During an injury prevention appointment we analyse any factors that can increase your risk of injury, this includes muscles imbalances, muscle weakness, mobility restrictions and functional movements.

Additionally, we offer group exercise classes. Currently, we run a class for the Medway based charity, Open Road, who assist individuals recovering from alcohol and drug addiction.
