Specialising in Physiotherapy and Sports Injuries

Kirk Russell is a Chartered Physiotherapist with nearly 20 years experience of working at the highest level of sport, including the England Cricket Team, Tottenham Hotspur FC, Northampton Saints, and most recently the London Olympics.

I provide physiotherapy and treatment for sports injuries, workplace injuries and sports massage throughout the Bath and London areas. I also run Sports Assessment Clinics for running and cycling.

I strongly believe in getting to the root cause of your problems as well as treating your immediate symptoms, with a treatment program unique to you.  I also believe that prevention is better than a cure. I don’t just offer a reactive service but provide you with the tools to prevent any problems reoccurring.

So whether you have common back pain, a sports injury, work-related aches or recovering from an accident or surgery, I aim to help you recover and restore your quality of life.

Dani Mears

Dani has been a Chartered Physiotherapist for over 15 years.
