The Loughborough Physiotherapy and Sports Injuries clinic was opened in 1980 in a small premises in the Coneries, by Joyce Adam, Rhiannon Bennett and Anne Hind, joined very soon afterwards by Margaret Whyman. Their vision was for a clinic where one could access effective and efficient treatment and have the resources to be referred on to other professionals as needed.
In 2002 Joanne Hartshorn took full ownership of the clinic. Her vision was for a purpose built centre of excellence, near the university so students could avail themselves of the facilities; but with ease of access for all. She saw an excellent facility with experienced physios who could treat elite athletes, but also meet the needs of the office worker, recreational athlete or schoolchild.
This became a reality in 2008, when the clinic moved to purpose built premises on Forest Road. Since the move, when more room became available the clinic has expanded and opened two specialised clinics for treating conditions that require more knowledge than average; an adolescent clinic for 12-18 year olds and a migraine/headache, face pain and TMJ clinic.
