Sometimes it’s unavoidable, just your luck. But there’s no luck involved in our ability to minimise your injury risk, or to return you to full movement and peak performance fast.
No luck involved and no magic either. For us there is science, unavoidable and irrefutable. Nerves, blood, muscle, tendon and tissue are the same for all of us, but what’s unique is the health and strength of each of these elements within us. They are different for an active 8 year old and a sedentary 58 year old. They’re different too for an obese 8 year old and an active 85 year old.
There may be no magic, but there is an art to our work. It’s borne of history, experience, talent and intuition.
Our plan for you is simple. We’ll prepare you to stay injury free for as long as possible, or we’ll plan together to recover your strength, movement and mobility quickly. You’ll have access to the whole team inside Hampden and your Physio will ensure you see the best clinician for fast progress.
The harder we work, the luckier we get as the old adage has it – as for us, so too for you.
“My experience of the Hampden Sports Clinic has been extremely positive. My daughter attended with ankle pain occurring during ballet training. A consultation with Louise Mitchell led to prompt diagnosis of the problem, and the cause, with a clear and effective treatment plan. In follow up appointments, Louise’s knowledge and understanding of ballet training, clear advice and constant encouragement have been first class. I will definitely return to the clinic for any treatment or advice required in the future. Louise is an excellent sports physio and a delight to work with. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

As a triathlete I am constantly putting my body under a lot of different stresses during intensive training periods. I attend the clinic regularly for sports massage that keep me in good flexible order. However early this year I picked up a foot injury during a cycle. Whilst attending my physio appointment with Jim he asked if I minded him calling upon Dr MacLean and Mhairi to give their opinion, which I found very reassuring. Having such a range of expertise and experience in the one place is a big plus for me. I was happy to give this endorsement and now training is full steam ahead!
I was tired of being tired. Cliched west of Scotland middle aged male. Too much food and drink, nae exercise! Can’t remember the actual scare story that got me going, but it was a bit scary. I didn’t fancy keeling over lacing up my trainers, so before I put them on I was keen to know I was safe! I saw Dr MacLean who went through a number of tests and my medical history. I was knackered after that treadmill, but good to go as long as I took it slowly. Another cliché - it has changed my life. After completing a 5K programme I now have my eyes fixed on running a 10K and have lost a ton of weight into the bargain! Thanks.
I was referred to the clinic by my surgeon as part of my rehabilitation program following knee surgery. The standard of treatment and facilities almost matched the welcome at reception! My recovery has been made faster by being able to use both the hydropool and the gym. I also find it reassuring that whilst I’m in there my physio Alan is usually on hand to check in with. Thank you for getting me up and running again in super quick time!
My 8 year old daughter was often complaining of sore legs particularly after running. A friend told me to see Sophie at Hampden Sports Clinic. I was impressed with both how relaxed Sophie made my daughter feel and the range of tests and questions that she went through. My daughter was delighted to have her running style analysed in the Scotland players’ warm up area too! We both left the appointment feeling reassured that there was no injury to worry about, and a note of some specific exercises to get on with to help the aches.
As a keen runner I have received many a massage over the years. Since attending Hampden Sports Clinic I have been unbelievably impressed with Karen's meticulous approach to understanding the root cause of my inflexibility, particularly in my hips. Karen focused on releasing tightness in my back and hamstrings and even measured the exact degree of movement before and after working on each area, a level of detail I had never come across before. I feel I now get so much more out of my sessions due to this structured approach and Karen now knows the key areas to focus on to help my muscle flexibility. I now look forward to lots of injury-free running!
