Sports Injuries Introduction

The London Foot and Ankle Centre is renowned for the treatment of sports injuries. Our experience includes work with Premiership footballers, major rugby clubs and many other sportspeople competing at an elite level.

We are equally proud of the treatment we provide for amateur sportspeople, who benefit from the same level of expertise and quality. Our focus is upon achieving optimal mobility, pain free and ensuring you can return to your sports activity as soon as possible without compromising your recovery.
