I’m a London based Physiotherapist who drives down to Brighton for treatment sessions. Enough said!
I thought physiotherapists would just look at the symptom and not seek the deeper cause, but Brighton Sports Therapy’s holistic approach was a detailed analysis of how one stands in the world and how one finds their feet in the world. Life will affect us on many levels and these guys are trained to go through physical and psychological events that manifest in physical injury.
I first went to see Brighton Sports Therapy about a calf injury. It soon became obvious this was going to be a life changing discovery. The holistic assessment and treatment has really helped me to improve my fitness and health. An old serious leg injury that every other physio has advised was hopelessly damaged is now much improved and I have a much more mobile ankle. I have made and continue to make progress and learning about my physical health has helped me identify the stressors in my life I need to change to become healthier and happier.
Having been to several physio’s over the years I was pleasantly surprised to find that the approach undertaken was more holistic in nature and went above and beyond what I have experienced in treatments previously. For my injury, this involved looking beneath the initial symptoms and delving into both physical and emotional stresses that may have also played their part. The 90 minute appointment system works so much better than a typical appointment as it allows the therapist to work really deeply on the issues, working in harmony with your body rather than providing a textbook treatment.
After having over 10 years of knee pain and seeking so many different types of therapy, I was resigned to the fact I was always going to be restricted in my choices of ways to train, always fearfully avoiding certain exercises and being constantly aware of the niggling pain. I’m so grateful BST got recommended to me. Their alternative approach has given me a new lease of life. I am running with no pain again, have more energy and a much more fearless mindset . Thanks so much.
Brighton Sports Therapy have been a massive help through a difficult time with my complex and historical back problems. Their approach is holistic, connecting mind, body and spirit. His work helped me to recover and find new ways to deal with future back problems and look at the underlying cause. I would highly recommend them for both help with physical and emotional issues and will be sure to go back to them in the future should I require treatment.
I contacted Brighton Sports Therapy because I have RSI and didn’t feel in control of it. It has literally changed my life. They have a wonderfully kind and holistic approach – helping me to be more aware of how stress affects my body and teaching me techniques to manage it mentally and physically.
Brighton Sports Therapy fixed a long term problem in spite of me being a useless patient who doesn’t even know what a squat is. Don’t let the name fool you, they also help lazy idiots!
Everyone at this physiotherapy clinic is fantastic. I have nothing but praise for these therapists. If you are in need of physiotherapy this is a place you simply must go to.
I only needed 3 sessions to heal my shoulder but the sessions were more than just physio. Mark took a very holistic approach in healing my injury and has changed my whole perception on life, exercise and stress management. The sessions were worth every penny! I highly recommend.
The treatment I have received from the team at Brighton Sports Therapy has completely transformed my view of traditional physiotherapy and opened my eyes to how effective treatment can be if you are willing to take a different approach.
I searched around (prepared to literally travel anywhere) for the best physio I could find and settled on either these guys (based off their reviews) or Harley St, London (based off their prices). I booked both, saw Jamie in Brighton first and politely explained to him that he had a few sessions to convince me I didn’t need to pay through the nose in London.
This is by far the most effective physio treatment I have ever had and what amazed me most is that they barely touched my arms at all, it was tightness in my abdomen muscles that was causing the issue. Really great stuff.
I have a huge level of confidence in the approach to physio that is taken here, looking at the full picture and not just blindly focusing in on the area of the injury in question.
Brighton Sports Therapy have been excellent in diagnosing and treating me. From the first treatment the pain relief and increase in mobility has been fantastic, enabling me to continue regular activity and sport.
I would highly recommend Brighton Sports Therapy – they’ve helped me immensely over the past 6 months keeping my body mobile and happily pain free whilst I’ve upped my training significantly for an ultra marathon this autumn. The benefits have far exceeded my expectations in originally seeking help for knee pain – instead improve my overall posture and body position. Thank you!
Having used a number of Sports Therapists over the years, Brighton Sports Therapy are by far the best and most knowledgeable. Most other therapists were threating the affected area with would only temporarily help the project. These guys began by looking at the wider problems and issues which were causing the problem to persist. I would highly recommend for anyone seeking any therapy.
Very impressed. My strange combination of endurance and high-impact sports has led to what feels like a fairly unique set of physical challenges. BST got to the heart of the problem straight away in my first appointment and took a lot of persistent pain away immediately.
From the first session Brighton Sports Therapy took a broader, more holistic view than I was used to and looked to identify and correct the imbalances that either led to my injury or resulted from it. I saw the progress clearly with each session. At all times I was given a realistic estimate of how many more sessions I would need. Before I knew it, not only was the injury healed but I felt more stable, balanced and stronger than before. I would recommend Brighton Sports Therapy to anyone.
These guys know their onions. After several Ironman events and too many marathons I was looking for someone to activate underused muscle groups and to help me feel less creaky overall. After sessions with BST I felt great and left with a whole new understanding of the human body. They shared a lot of new and interesting insights and gave me a series of treatment that really worked. Recommended
I have experienced some pain in the back of my knee. I have been to see Jamie and have to compliment his professional knowledge. He has the great ability to explain complex issues. He gave me lots of advise on how to treat my pain with everyday movements. Apart from his expertise, I would like to point out that Jamie is a very approachable and friendly person. I would highly recommend him!
I picked up an IT band knee injury while training for the Brighton marathon this year that prevented me running any more than 5-10k without serious pain. I’d all but given up hope of running the marathon after trying various things to fix it without success. I started seeing Jamie less than 6 weeks before the marathon and after about 3-4 session I was able to run a lot further with much less pain. By the day of the marathon, my knee felt almost completely better, and I ran the whole thing with no knee pain at all! I don’t claim to fully understand everything Jamie does, but it definitely works. Amazing stuff & highly recommended!
I compete in a lot of endurance sports and high impact sports too. I have seen Jamie for a few years now and he is among the very best I have seen (and I’ve seen a few over the years!) Highly recommended.
Meeting Jamie for the first time was a very enjoyable experience, he explained a whole new way of the strains I had been putting on my body through Marathon running, tennis and bad posture, Within 30 mins he was working away and my body started to feel 10 years younger. A completely new and invigorating approach to back and muscles problems that I had battled with over the years.
Jamie is extremely good at getting fast results and you back on track with your exercise routines and he even sets you homework
I would have no hesitation of recommending BST to any one
Jamie knows what he’s doing, though don’t expect traditional physiotherapy. I visited with a calf tear recovery problem after a recommendation by a friend. I couldn’t run without damaging it over and over again. Jamie’s holistic approach had me running again within the month, and I’m still running, building up distance again. While he was at it he’s helped massively with problems with my ankle and shoulder, definitely seek him out if you’re having problems.

As an ultrarunner I approached Jamie Webb with much trepidation, expecting the usual advice to stop running silly distances and I wouldn’t be complaining of injuries. Instead, I was met with complete acceptance of ‘what I do’ combined with consistent ‘work’ on the source of my injuries/complaints. I couldn’t recommend Brighton Sports Therapy highly enough. It has been a joy to finally run pain-free again. My running complaints have ranged from ankle injuries to IT-band trouble, lazy glutes, core and hip stresses and strains … ALL of which I can happily say are currently in the best condition they can be in. Will I stop running? No. But the holistic approach of Brighton Sports Therapy has allowed me to continue, improve and race pain-free. Thank you.
A few months ago as I began to have problems with my right knee, and on some occasions was unable to put weight on it when going up steps or uphill, I asked on Facebook if anyone knew of any good physiotherapists in my area, and I was recommended Jamie Webb. I went along and was assessed, with all aspects of my health taken into account, Jamie diagnosed a muscle imbalance, and immediately began working on releasing muscles in many parts of my body, but strangely (not to him) this had the effect of strengthening the muscles around my knee. I have since completed a 100k non stop walk, plus have trekked round Iceland with no further problems to my knee (or any other part of my poor body). I assure you that if Jamie is given a body suffering in any way from the traumas of sport, he will have you diagnosed, and be working on the problem within the first 30 minutes of your appointment, and you WILL leave after the 1st hour already aware of improvement.
I can honestly say that’s the best money I’ve ever spent! I’d been struggling with a football injury for months and Jamie made a massive improvement in the first session. I’m now able to go into tackles 100% knowing that my ankle will be fine. I no longer need any more treatment, that’s how good things are, but if I do get another injury I know exactly who I’ll be ringing!
The severe back and headaches I used to have never came back after I started receiving treatment from Brighton Sports Therapy. Not only did they identify the root cause for my problems, but they also taught me how to manage my everyday life so that I do not get the pains again. Before, I never thought I could have a full week without headaches. Now months pass and I do not get any!
After a high speed road traffic accident left me with whiplash in my back and neck a recommendation led me to Brighton Sports Therapy. I was impressed by their careful evaluation that they made at each visit and the combination of techniques they used to treat me.
When you’ve got a torn calf muscle, it comes as no surprise that you seek out a physiotherapist and expect to make a full recovery. It’s a life changing experience when you also get long running osteo-arthritic shoulders moving painlessly after years of discomfort, and when you dodgy knees regain their robustness of the past. I’ve had so many old injuries and niggles that I had learned simply put up with them, but Brighton Sports Therapy not only successfully treated those injuries, they gave me the confidence to believe that I don’t have to expect of future of increasing immobility with age.
Brighton Sports Therapy has been supporting my son for 4 years, since he began serious competitive swimming at the age of 12; my son is now a National level swimmer. Brighton Sports Therapy treats my son on a regular basis, not only for muscle fatigue but also for the occasional injury. He has helped my son overcome injury problems whilst still continuing his training programme, by treatment and advice – on when and at what level of intensity to train at, whilst recovering from injury.
I became a client of Brighton Sports Therapy’s about 2 years ago to aid my recovery from a serious ankle injury sustained in 2003. Thanks to Brighton Sports Therapy I am now able to walk more often, covering greater distances with fair less pain than before. In my personal opinion Brighton Sports Therapy is a brilliant practice. They are trustworthy, reliable and very honest about what can be achieved with treatment. In short they improved my quality of life by 100%.
Brighton Sports Therapy has helped me enormously with a chronic neck problem. With combined gentle exercise and massage therapy specific to my needs I am able to get on with everyday life with ease.
Struggling with terrible back and shoulder pain, a friend of mine suggested I try Brighton Sports Therapy – (In fact they said, you must go, they’re brilliant!)
With nothing to lose and everything to gain, I booked in.
The difference is remarkable and the improvement extraordinary.
If you have physio needs, then I would highly recommend Brighton Sports Therapy.
I have previously had a series of ineffective treatment through traditional physiotherapy, operations carried out by orthopaedic surgeons, injections etc. Since going to Brighton Sports Therapy they have used a variety of techniques to help ease my back pain and coach me in ways to manage and prevent issues from reoccurring. They don’t only treat the problem but explain how each of the techniques works and also why each technique is being used.
All of those injuries that I had left to build up over the years thinking I will sort them one day and never got round to it are finally getting sorted. As a busy working mum putting myself first has never been a priority but Brighton Sports Therapy has made me realise that I need to think about myself. From ankles, calves, knee, back to shoulder I am finally ridding myself of all the pain I have just put up with for years thanks to Brighton Sports Therapy.
I have been treated by Brighton Sports Therapy for a number of issues across a period of several years and can honestly say that they have addressed each one with a combination of intuition, knowledge, understanding and skill. Brighton Sports Therapy deal with the underlying causes of problems by having a truly holistic approach to treatment; they recognise the value of healing the body in its entirety rather than just focusing upon random or isolated symptoms. As a result they have not only dealt commendably with specific aches and pains but also improved my general sense of well-being.
At Brighton Sports Therapy they always seem to know what’s going on with my body and get it working properly. It’s thanks to Brighton Sports Therapy that I am able to continue to enjoy the sport I love and recover quicker!
I initially visited Brighton Sports Therapy in December 2010 with a severe flare up of an historic back problem. It proved to be the first step of a major life change for me. After my first treatment my back pain was immediately reduced to a manageable level that gave me the confidence to proceed with my life and has made it possible for me to return to my favourite exercise of swimming, training competitively for the first time in 20 years!
