Our clinicians have a variety of treatment techniques at their disposal to relieve pain, regain range of movement, restore muscle strength and return patients to normal, pain-free day-to-day life.

Are you an athlete?

Summit Physio’s experts can help anybody to recover from an injury, regardless of their sporting ability.

That said, it just so happens that many of our clients are high-class athletes. Given the fact we are one of the only companies in the UK to offer state-of-the-art screening, this is hardly surprising.

Whether you are a footballer looking to avoid niggling muscle injuries, or a tennis player attempting to hone your serving technique, we use data derived from our cutting-edge screening equipment to help you put things right.

Sport is all about fine margins, and any athlete that can improve their performance – even by the smallest amount – will notice a big difference.

We treat Athletes who compete in:

Michael Grundy

MMA Fighter and Birtish Commenwealth Wrestler.

We’ve been supporting Mike for over two years now. We first got involved when providing a screening to develop an injury prevention plan, at the point where Mike was starting his transition from semi-pro wrestling to professional MMA.

We found that after over 15 years of elite wrestling, Mike’s body had a number of worn-out joints and potentially dangerous muscle imbalances. We came up with a physiotherapy plan that would help him confidently break into the elite ranks of MMA, providing the muscular care he would need to sustain his physique.

Andy Hosgood has been supporting Mike throughout the last two years of his career, aiding him with a number of injuries he sustained during major fights. Training with Andy has taken Mike to a place where he is now ready to compete in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, which naturally Mike is thrilled about.

Mike’s relationship with Andy has been aided by his encouragement and his understanding of how to get the most out of an athlete’s body. Andy works closely with Mike’s sports psychologist, and continues to support Andy with an injury prevention strategy in order to see Mike’s career reach new heights.

Martin Stapleton

Bellator Fighter.

It goes without saying that MMA fighters need to be in peak physical condition if they are to make a name for themselves in the sport.

With a record of 12 wins and just three defeats in his Bellator MMA career thus far, Martin “.50Cal” Stapleton clearly knows what it takes to overcome his opponents, but like anybody who takes part in combat sports, he is not immune to injuries. While training for the Cage Contender Fight Stars tournament – which he won by defeating three rivals in one night – Martin suffered a re-occurrence of a back problem that had affected him in the past.

His BJJ coach recommended that he came to Summit Physio – a decision that Martin certainly wouldn’t regret. He worked with Andy Hosgood a couple of times a week during the training camp, strengthening, increasing the range of movement and easing the pain in his lower back. Having completed this rehab programme, Martin insisted that his back was in the best shape for years.

The fact that he won the tournament suggests he was indeed in prime fighting condition!

Laura Massaro

We have been supporting Laura for the past 2 years now, and in that time she has achieved some outstanding results. You don’t get to Number One in the world without looking after your body, and Laura is an excellent example of that.

Laura is currently ranked Number One in the World (June 2016). Her achievements to date are extremely impressive; double silver medallist at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow 2014, World Champion 2013, British Open Champion 2013, Windy City Open Champion 2014, KL Open Champion 2013, US Open champion 2011, World player of the year 2011 and 2013, Commonwealth Games silver medallist Delhi 2010 and 2x British Closed Champion.

2014 started well reaching the final in the Tournament of Champions in the iconic location of Grand Central Terminal in New York. Then came The World Open in Penang which was a massive success and after saving 4 match balls in the QF Laura went on to win the event beating Nour El Sherbini in the final to become the 1st English Woman since Cassie Jackman in 1999 to win the title and become World Champion. A massive achievement! 2014 continued with success, after a summer of preparation, Laura achieved 2 silver medals in Glasgow at the Commonwealth Games.

2015 was a mixed year for Laura with it starting poorly by her own admission. After discussions with her team Laura put her rackets away for 5 weeks with a view to coming back to the tour refreshed and rejuvenated. It worked!  After a 3-2 Semi Final win over Nicol David at the British Open she then went on to lose in the final to Camille Serme in a tight 3-1. Proof a rest was just what she needed. Summer then came and the hard work was done before the start of the season in Macau. From September Laura took titles in Macau, the U.S Open and Qatar. Those wins followed by a semi final win over the World Number One Raneem El Weiliey meant that from January 1st 2016 Laura would be ranked Number One in the World for the first time in her career! A massive achievement and long may it continue, well done Laura.

Here’s what Laura has to say:
“As a professional athlete looking after my body is top priority. Summit Physiotherapy help me to train as hard as you would imagine I need to so I can perform at the top of my squash game. They help me recover in the best possible way after these tough sessions so I can train well again day after day. They strive for excellence in what they do and I couldn’t recommend them enough for a professional and friendly service.”

Paul Sass

Bellator Fighter

We first met Paul three years ago, after he suffered some lower back pain only six weeks prior to a major UFC match in London he was scheduled to fight in. His profession is a pretty violent one, to say the least, and the injury was potentially enough to put him out of the competition.

Luckily, one of our team members, Andy Hosgood, turned up to remedy the situation. Andy’s work with Paul meant that, after some dedicated therapy time, Paul was able to take part in his fight in London. Paul found a good friend in Andy, and continued working with him.

One of the turning points of Paul’s career came a little later on, before his first match in the Bellator Fighting Championships in the US, when he sustained an injury to his left shoulder. Andy stepped up to get him back in the ring, but after the fight, it was clear that Paul’s injuries would require a long-term fix.

He went into surgery fearing the worst. Andy stuck with Paul through every step of the rehabilitation process, challenging him down to the smallest details in order to see a full recovery.

Thanks to Summit, Paul is now back in full training with the strength and confidence to continue his journey toward becoming one of the world’s top lightweight MMA fighters. To this day, he continues to work with Andy and the Summit team.

Graeme Ballard

Graeme has been coming regularly to Summit since 2008, he is an English Paralympian athlete with cerebral palsy, who competes mainly in category T36 sprint events.

Graeme’s career has been very successful so far. He has competed in both the T36 100m and 200m in the 2004 Summer Paralympics in Athens winning the bronze medal in 200m. Four years later, in Bejing 2008, he competed in the 100m, 200m and 400m where he was unlucky to not finish in the medals. He then competed in the London 2012 Paralympics and won the silver medal in the T36 100m. In May 2012, Graeme became the world record holder in the T36 100m, securing a a time of 11.98 seconds at the Paralympic World Cup in Manchester. Most recently, he has won two silver medals at both the 2014 IPC Athletics European Championships in Swansea, and the 2016 IPC Athletics European Championships in Grosseto in the T36 100m and 200m.

Graeme is one of the most dedicated athletes that we see, his training schedule is demanding and made even more so in that he always strives for perfection. Helping Graeme to compete at this level is a privilege.

Here’s what Graeme has to say:
“Thanks to all at Summit Physio for all your help over the last eight years. It is down to your valuable input and advice that I have been able to achieve to the level I have. I am most grateful and appreciate all the support that you have given me especially at the most difficult times in my career. I have been most fortunate to have had such dedicated physios as part of my success.”

Brian Fogarty

Ironman Distance Triathlete

Brian has been coming to Summit regularly for the past 3 years, and as you can see from his impressive results he has gone from strength to strength. He mainly competes in Ironman distance triathlons (2.4mile swim, 112mile bike and 26.2mile run) but has had great success at other distances too. In his youth he was in the academy at Burnley Football Club, but due to recurrent back pain he was unable to continue on this path. It is testament to Brian’s hard work and dedication that has seen him overcome his back troubles as a footballer, and progress through triathlon to competing at the highest level in Ironman.

This year (2017) Brian will again be competing at the Ironman World Championship held in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Due to finishing 1st in Lanzerote earlier this year and gaining successful qualification to the event. This will be Brian’s 5th year competing at the World Championships. It has been Summits long term goal with Brian since the beginning of the year. Brian has gone through our comprehensive screening tool, The Performance Matrix, which has allowed us to find his movement pattern weak links and put correction strategies in place.

Brian’s achievements to date:
* Ironman Lanzerote 2017: 1st Armature, 1st GB, and 11th overall with a time of 9hours 22minutes 2016: 23rd Place 2nd Amateur (9 Hours 34 Minutes)
