West Berkshire Injury Clinic

Located at the top of the High Street (opposite the Borough Arms), we help and treat a wide range of clients – not just athletes. This year we’ve got gift vouchers available, a thoughtful and useful gift for friends and family who might be in need of a little sports therapy, osteopathy, soft tissue massage or perhaps fancy a session with our Bike Fit expert, Callum Hughes. Remember, sports therapy and massage aren’t just for those who partake in sport, it really can help with everyday aches and pains as well. 

As Christmas is now round the corner it is important that we recognise those people who give so much to the community – whether that’ll be helping with the numerous sports clubs, theatre groups, vulnerable people or community events. Who would you nominate? 

The person who is most deserving will get a free treatement with West Berkshire Injury Clinic at our clinic just off the High Street in Hungerford. Please email Andy on

We are also giving a 50% discount for carers until 20/12/2019.
