Our talented team of sports therapy specialists work with sports men and women of all ages and abilities to not only help prevent injury but also to rehabilitate you back to your optimum levels of functional, and sports specific fitness.

When it comes to rehabilitation, we know that one size doesn’t fit all. And because of that, we take the time to assess each client’s needs and requirements from their sport. 


As members of the Sports Therapy Association, we have the knowledge, skills and ability to: 

  • Utilise sports and exercise principles to optimise performance, preparation and injury prevention programmes.

  • Assess, treat, rehabilitate if appropriate, refer on for specialist advice and intervention.

  • Provide appropriate soft tissue treatments (including massage, trigger point release, muscle energy techniques and scarwork)

  • Plan and implement rehabilitation programmes for returning to training / work which are tailored to your specific needs and body. 

Many of our Sports Therapists have had professional careers in various sports so we understand the stresses your body endures for your sport. We can also relate to that feeling when you pick up an injury – We understand how it feels to want to return to your sport or even just be pain-free. And it’s our goal to help facilitate that – getting you back to your optimum in the most efficient way possible!

So if you have an injury, or you’re looking to improve your performance, then why not book in with one of us at The Core, Ferndown!
