START is a Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine Clinic that opened in 2011.


It is open to the general public and there is no need to for a GP referral. There is no waiting list so to get assessed and treated promptly book an appointment.


All clients will have free use of the modern gym facilities  and free weights while under supervision of the therapist.


START prides itself on using the most up to date treatments and exclusively "hands on" as there are no machines like ultrasound or vibration plates. Evidence based practice and great skills and knowledge is what you are paying for.


Please call Bernie on 07900 555 005 or email to ask questions about your condition.




An experienced physiotherapist will assess your joints, muscles, ligaments and nerves for damage caused by trauma or poor posture or technique. No fancy gadgets or machines. Just a thorough examination and testing to determine what is wrong and what treatment is required.

Hands on

Great physiotherapists can feel the differences between normal and injured tissues with good palpation skills. The use of massage and soft tissue techniques help the body's natural healing more than pain killers can without most of the side effects.


Exercise comes in many forms.  Where appropriate, clients will be given exercises to help with posture at work or home and a combination of strength, balance, stability and stretching exercises to make a long term difference.



Bernie is now a Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Certified Medical Professional. Having an intricate knowledge of the stresses the body goes under during the golf swing means a better understanding of potential injuries and swing characteristics.


START Clinic is now able to perform a dynamic screening process which assesses everything from neck range of movement to your ability to stand on one leg with your eyes closed. All 16 tests affect your ability to swing a golf club efficiently. Just working on a few identified areas of stiffness and weakness can dramatically improve your ball striking and decrease the risk of injury.
