What people say about us

Really glad I went to see Tom for a second opinion on a running injury prior to the recent Yorkshire marathon. I am pretty sure I wouldn’t have been on the start line if it wasn’t for his informed advice on the injury and recovering from it. Would definitely recommend and should I pick up another injury I will know where to go!

Tom is excellent, really helpful and knowledgeable. He has got me back running again after a foot problem I thought would be the end of my running days. Highly recommended.

August 2018

I have been in for a few reasons and every time I have received top quality treatment and had everything sorted. Highly knowledgable and extremely friendly! Would definitely recommend to anyone.

February 2018

I visited Tom for several weeks whilst recovering from a bad knee injury sustained whilst playing netball. The sessions were so instrumental in helping me regain my mobility and range of movement in my knee, and also my confidence in returning to sport. Highly recommended.

“Working as a dentist requires good posture and flexibility so experiencing severe back and shoulder pain meant I couldn’t work. I then knew I needed immediate treatment so I telephoned Excel Sports clinic and was offered an appointment the very next day. When I telephoned the clinic they were very flexible when offering me an urgent appointment, ensuring I was seen quickly.

When I attended Excel Sports clinic I was made to feel very welcome. A detailed history of my problem was then documented which made me feel confident and looked after. Following a thorough assessment of my back and shoulder I was given a diagnosis and informed of the reason for my pain. I was then able to make an informed decision about the treatment required.

There were no delays and I had three more visits to the Excel Sports clinic. At the end of my treatment I had no pain and regained full movement of my neck and shoulder which allowed me to restart work again. I was given an exercise regime to follow by my therapist Adi and a review appointment. The excellent treatment I received definitely worked as I have had no further treatment for my shoulder which means I have been able to continue work with no problems. I now visit the clinic on a monthly basis to have regular sports massage and to make sure my injury does not come back. The service I received at Excel Sports clinic was second to none, very professional and certainly recommendable.”

“Adi is a top guy and very knowledgeable on injuries and rehab, I worked with him in my time at York City FC, I was always able to contact Adi for any advice on injuries/rehab or gym conditioning work. He is a great guy who I cannot recommend highly enough and his always thorough with his work and always willing to go the extra mile to help”.

“I write to express my appreciation for the excellent and thoroughly professional treatment I have experienced with Adi Hammond.

Following a period of painful and frustrating lower back pain I visited my GP who recommended that I sought the assistance of a good physio therapist. My problem was I had no idea where to start in finding one; other than by doing the usual key word searches and taking pot luck. Thankfully, I decided this was not an option, my fitness and mobility is far too important for me to waste any diverted time in getting back to the things I enjoy – I am now 66 and want to continue an active life – walking, cycling and golf etc. I needed a recommendation from someone well placed to advise and whose suggestions I could trust – I approached a personal trainer I have worked with and who immediately recommended Excel Sports Injury Clinic.

From the very first thorough and detailed consultation in which Adi spent time getting to know my general health history, medications, fitness levels and activity targets I felt confident that I had made the right decision. Since that first appointment at the end of September I have made significant progress and am certainly much more mobile and back pain free than at any time in the last few years. I have now completed my course, carefully tailored by Adi, with exercises, treatment and massage, to exceed my own targets, particularly those related to my golf.

Thanks to you I can now continue this progress with the programme of home exercises you designed and which will help me maintain an active, enjoyable lifestyle and, who knows, maybe further improvement in my golf.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Adi and Tom of Excel whose enthusiasm and obvious expertise has made for a rapid and very enjoyable recovery experience.”
