It goes without saying Richie has an interest in Sports Physiotherapy however you don’t have to be an athlete for him to help you. Using all of the skills he has acquired over the years he has a high level of knowledge and will put all of his experience gained into getting you back on track. When Richie isn’t at the clinic you might spot him on his mountain bike up on the Wither Hills, running down our fantastic riverbank track, chasing a little ball around a golf course or spending time keeping active with his wife and two children.Back to Our Team
