The team at the Guildhall Practice are passionate about sport and enabling you to perform at your best, regardless of the level of sport that you compete at. We are experienced in treating a wide variety of conditions, and we are eager to get to the root of the problem rather than simply treating the symptoms.
All is not always quite what it seems when it comes to running injuries. Frequently it is the repetitive strain of running that causes pain at a particularly vulnerable site. A good example of this is pain within the Achilles tendon is almost always accompanied, and potentially caused by sustained contraction of the calf muscles. In this situation stretching the tendon will most likely aggravate the situation , whereas soft tissue massage, acupuncture and taping of the calf muscle can reduce the referred strain and enable the tendon to settle.
We have long-established relationships with Birchfield Harriers, Tipton Harriers and the BRATS athletic and triathlete clubs. Our Director, Andrew Leask, was a track athlete in his youth and worked at Birchfield Harriers on club nights for a number of years, travelling with the club internationally to offer medical support.

With a contact sport such as Rugby there’s always the potential for injury, and the need to play whilst injured.
Our team at the Guildhall Practice are passionate about enabling you to continue playing. Duncan Davis, Osteopath, has been working at the practice for five years, plays regularly for Redditch RFC, and frequently turns up on Monday mornings looking more than a little battered !
