At Hands On Sports Therapy and Injury Clinic we believe in the 'Hands On' manual approach. We use a variety of evidence based manual treatment techniques to suit your specific Injury. However we know it's not all about the treatment and you won't leave without being given exercises to carry out at home. We understand that not every injury is the same and that you will need your own individual and bespoke rehabilitation plan. You won't get any standard exercise sheets here!
You don't have to be Injured to benefit from Hands On Sports Therapy and Injury Clinic. We offer a range of services to help you improve your performance whether it be a Sports Massage or Functional Movement Analysis. You also don't need to be a sports person to use our services, we treat a range of people of all ages from the elite competitor, weekend warrior and the desk athlete!
At Hands On Sports Therapy and Injury Clinic your practitioner is a fully insured graduate sports therapist and member of The Society of Sports Therapists. They undergo continued professional development to ensure they are kept up to date with the most recent developments in sports medicine.
At Hands On Sports Therapy & Injury Clinic we want to get to the root cause of the problem rather than just treating the symptoms. This will then stop any reoccurrence of your injury a few months later. We have seen pretty much every Injury and are able to treat ankle sprains to neck pain and everything in between.
Our mission is to provide you with an outstanding and professional service whether it is to treat a musculoskeletal condition or to improve your performance, we'll help you to Get Better and Be Better!
Hands On Sports Therapy & Injury Clinic is run and owned by Tony Schofield, a fully qualified Graduate Sports Therapist and Insured member of The Society of Sports Therapists.
After graduating from the University of Chichester in 2009 with a First Class Honours Degree in Sports Therapy Tony moved up to Cambridgeshire to start his career. He learnt his trade working within a strength and conditioning centre in the sports medicine department. Working with a wide range of athletes Tony was able to gain a vast amount of experience dealing with all sorts of sports related injuries and a fair few non sports related too!
Tony then went on to work with and open a private sports injury clinic where for the next 5 years he grew this into a thriving and successful clinic. Over that time Tony worked with many different people from elite level triathletes and international gymnasts to the weekend warrior and those he likes to class as the desk athlete! Tony
worked very closely with a number of running and triathlon clubs and even dabbled in some running himself completing the Edinburgh Marathon in 2014. This gave him a great understanding of what challenges competitors face during their training and races and now has a particular interest in running related injuries.
Now, Tony returns home with his young family in tow to where he grew up to start his next adventure. Hands On Sports Therapy & Injury Clinic has been running since March 2016 and is already growing into a successful clinic working with local Sports Clubs and Independent Gyms. Since his move back Tony has spent some time as an Associate Lecturer at the University of Chichester teaching 1st year Sports Therapy Students. Currently, outside of his busy Clinic, Tony is working at Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club as a Part Time Soft Tissue Therapist working within the first team medical department.
Tony is passionate about what he does and is never happy until his patients are back to their best. He believes in ensuring all his patients fully understand their Injury as this will lead to faster recovery rates. Tony also loves learning and undergoes regular continued professional development to better himself so that his patients get the most up to date advances in treatment and rehabilitation. Along with running Injuries Tony has a particular interest in treating adolescent sports injuries and in post operative rehabilitation.
