Several months ago I was stricken with severe sciatica, strong pain killers were prescribed by my GP but they had unacceptable side effects. I contacted Skelian and Jamie quickly sorted out my problem, without further medication. During the course of my treatment, I found that Jamie's manipulations of my neck gave a certain amount of relief to the vertigo and muzziness “brain fog”, which I had been suffering from, for the past five years. I am thankful to Skelian and Jamie in particular for his caring approach to my ailments, he has an excellent bedside manner and he has given me beneficial advice to help with my long standing dizziness problems.

Very happy. Jamie was great - friendly and professional. I certainly felt that I was in good hands and could already feel the benefits after my first visit. After three sessions the pain has gone.

I highly recommend the Skelian Clinic. The lovely Aaron has cured my lower back pain in a matter of a few weeks so that I can now resume and enjoy my walks. Everyone at the clinic is very professional, kind and friendly. Thank you.

I walked in to the Skelian clinic at my wit's end - my neck and shoulders hurt from decades of poor posture due to computer work, my left forearm was tight and painful and I had been suffering with agonizing tennis elbow in my right arm which was waking me up every night. It felt like my entire upper body had seized up. From the moment I entered the clinic I felt a good vibe - Angela, the receptionist, made me feel relaxed and welcome and was just lovely to be around, she takes a genuine interest in every client and radiates warmth - and has a lovely singing voice to boot! Victoria, who I cannot thank enough, has worked miracles. After four treatments, using a combination of dry needle therapy, targeted deep tissue massage and spinal manipulation I feel like a different person. The pain has almost completely gone and I have a workable action plan on how to look after my joints. Victoria is empathic, exceptionally knowledgeable, witty and a great listener. She explains what she is doing in straightforward language and puts you at ease immediately. I can honestly say that I am blown away by the results, it is life changing to have that debilitating pain taken away. I wish I'd gone sooner. If you are suffering with neck, back or joint problems please just book an appointment online, you owe it to yourself.

I was not expecting the relief that I experienced, From the moment treatment started I was made relaxed, after my first treatment I could not believe the difference, All the staff were very professional, the treatment was exceptional, Actually looking foreward to my next appointment
I've been coming to Dani for regular Sports Massage appointments for nearly a year now, recently transitioning on to the Hot Stones massage. As someone who likes to regularly weight train these sessions have been invaluable to my recovery and have ensured that any aches, pains and knots are kept to their absolute minimum. I've recently moved over to the Hot Stones massage and highly recommend it, it's a great mixture of traditional sports massage techniques combined with the hot stones - this will be my go to massage moving forward. Dani is extremely welcoming, friendly and a pleasure to be around - I can't rate her highly enough!

Sports Injury Clinic Cheltenham

Sports Injury and exercise rehabilitation in Cheltenham 

If you are recovering from an injury, whether it is sports related or not. Rehabilitation or corrective exercises are an essential part in resolving the problem, managing the problem and preventing the issues from returning.

Most issues we see in the clinic are either from an exercise related accident causing a new injury or long standing problems (chronic), which has been bothering the patient for a while and is not resolving by itself.

Injury rehabilitation comes in all sorts of varieties. From improving balance to the recovery of a broken bone in the body, or following a surgery. 

The main aim of the rehabilitation exercises is to improve how your body functions. This is achieved by working on the weaker and stiffer (in some cases too mobile) problem areas that need attention.

Issues that rehabilitation exercise can help with.

  • Running/sporting injuries
  • Poor posture
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Elbow pain
  • Wrist/Hand pain
  • Pelvic pain
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Ankle pain
  • Foot pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Poor balance
  • Poor co-ordination
  • Managing hypermobility

How does rehabilitation exercises work?

The aim of exercise rehabilitation is to improve how your body physically functions. For example, if you are stiff and not very mobile, then we need to get you a bit more flexible and mobile. If you are weak in a certain area and other areas are overworking causing muscle tightness, then we need to balance you out, by improving the strength of the weaker muscles and possibly retraining how you move.

In some cases, you might be recovering from a traumatic injury, like an accident playing football where you sprain your ankle. The exercises prescribed to you by the practitioner will help with the recovery but also with any long-term issue you may encounter having sustained the injury in the first place.

Once the problem area(s) have been identified you will be given a program to follow by your practitioner.
