The Early Years
Sport-Med was established by Tim Deykin in 1988. At that time there was
no other full time town centre physiotherapy or sports injury clinic in
operation within Stockport.
The clinic was established to provide physiotherapy service to the people who
work in Stockport, whether in the professional, commercial, industrial or
retail sectors of the town. Essentially for the workers of Stockport the
practice opening hours cover the working week, but was closed at the weekends.
As the reputation of Sport-Med grew, people travelled in from the outskirts
of Stockport too. And not only for the treatment of sports injuries, but also
gained a reputation in the treatment of back and necks problems with a new
technique from New Zealand called the McKenzie Technique.
Sport-Med blends together the latest in Sport Science and Medicine.
The clinic is situated on the ground floor of Norbury Chambers and the corner
of Norbury Street in Stockport. The clinic consists of a reception/waiting room and two
large treatment rooms. These are modern, bright, clean and private. They are
fully equipped and each contains state of the art electrotherapy equipment,
and electric adjustable examination/treatment couches.
If you have you children with you, you will find us quite child friendly.
We have colouring books, some reading material and a few toys to keep them
occupied, and stickers to reward good behaviour, or as a last resort and with
your permission we have a lollipop!
