I first went to see Denis with achilles tendon pain, and found Denis to be very professional in the way he carried out the treatment needed for me to make a full recovery. Since that first visit I have visited Denis with other injuries and always found Denis to be very knowledgeable and have been very pleased with his assessment and follow up treatments I have received.
I teach 6 exercise classes a week and would have no hesitation in recommending Denis to family, friends and class participants because I know they will get the best possible treatment.
I am a former professional Ice hockey player who suffers from soreness and stiff back from a surgery (prolapsed disc) which was performed more than 20 years ago. I contacted the clinic about 2 years ago for treatments to alleviate the stiffness and soreness in my back. The weekly and bi-weekly treatments (depending on the soreness) that I received are very important in me being able to maintain an active lifestyle. I play golf and tennis every week and the support and treatment I receive at the clinic makes sure that I am able to participate in these sports regularly. I would definitely recommend to anybody (athletes, ex-athletes) who are still very active and suffer from a few aches and pains to attend the clinic for treatments.
I contacted the Clinic to receive treatment on my lower back due to soreness and stiffness from earlier surgery. Nik, has now treated me for the last 4 years on a weekly or bi weekly basis which has enabled me to continue to have an active lifestyle. I have so much confidence in Nik’s abilities and knowledge that now most of my family as seen Nik at some point over the last 2 years when injured through sporting activities.
I would certainly recommend Nik to anybody suffering from injuries and wanting to recover to continue their active lifestyle.
I have been using Teesside Sports Injury Centre for over 5 years for a range of injuries, I recommend them to all of my friends and colleagues as they are highly professional and great value for money!
I went to see Jordan for a long term problem that I had which was causing me a lot of pain and affecting my work and daily activities. He was very thorough in his assessment and explained clearly to me what the problem was, gave me treatment and advice on what I could do at home. My pain eased very quickly and he’s definitely my go to guy for any future injuries!
I first visited Teesside Sports Injury Centre with a chronic calf problem which had severely limited my running for years. Two months and some deep tissue manipulation later it was no longer affecting my running and within 3 months it no longer crossed my mind.
My second major injury was my left hip. I had treatment for the piriformis, hamstrings and surrounding areas and diagnosed the problem as a Labral Tear and Sportsman’s hernia. A letter was written for further investigation in June 2014 but unfortunately this was ignored. Finally eight months later, an x-ray and MRI scan I’ve finally been diagnosed as having a Labral tear and yes, you guessed it, a sportsman’s hernia. I am now under three NHS specialists awaiting surgical intervention.
I’d have no hesitation at all recommending Teesside Sports Injury Centre; it’s all that’s kept me moving over the past year.
Runner, Cyclist, Triathlete
Denis was involved with the Velo29 Cycling Team during the 2012 and 2013 road cycling season where we competed in the top UK races. During treatment I found Denis to be extremely thorough and knowledgeable in all aspects of his treatment. I found his skills and treatments highly beneficial which kept me in top form for the duration of a long hard season.
I had been suffering from a long episode of sciatica, resulting in constant pain and poor standing tolerance and I was beginning to avoid everyday activities because of my mobility and pain. I had been referred to physiotherapy and prescribed anti- inflammatories and amitriptyline to cope with the nerve pain but neither provided any long term benefit. Whilst waiting for an MRI scan a friend recommended the Teesside Sports Injury Clinic.
Following a thorough functional assessment I got exercises and remedial massage treatments and I was able to reduce my medication and am now off it completely. My standing tolerance returned and I no longer have to avoid activities or situations for fear or pain.
A fantastic local, convenient service, at affordable prices. Many thanks.
Teesside Sports Injury Centre has a contract with Teesside University to provide assessment and treatment for work related musculoskeletal problems. Anne Richardson, who runs the Occupational Health Department commented:
“The Sports Injury Clinic helps enormously in the rehabilitation of University staff members absent from work with musculoskeletal problems, facilitates early return to work and prevents ongoing sickness absence. The Clinic is on campus therefore staff do not have to leave site to attend for treatment which reduces time away from the workplace to attend for treatment. However the main benefit is that staff feel cared for and valued by this extra means of support.
The University has provided this service for two years and all who have attended have provided feedback, all of which was excellent. One client stated his life had now changed forever due to the skills and knowledge of the Sports Injury Team”.
