Leading The Way To Recovery

We are now open for face to face appointments at all of our clinic locations, with many safety measures in place.

However, if for any reason you would prefer a video call, that is still available, just call us on 0161 832 9000.

We are confident that when you come and see us you will feel safe. Safety measures have been put in place to protect you, our patients, and our team. Our reputation as the leading Sports Physiotherapist Practice across the North West is something we’ve always been very proud of. The dedication to your wellness and health now extends to following the strict government guidelines regarding Covid-19.

There are distancing measures in place in our waiting areas, treatment rooms are cleaned between each appointment, and our physios and massage therapists are fully equipped with PPE. Before your appointment you will be asked to confirm you have not experienced any symptoms, or been in contact with anyone confirmed with Covid-19, in the last 14 days. You must not have returned from overseas in the last fortnight from a country that would require a quarantine period as per government guidelines.

Please attend your appointment wearing a face covering, and use hand sanitiser provided before entering, and upon leaving our clinics. Please pay in advance for your appointment to minimise contact points wherever possible.

Thank you so much for your understanding and cooperation with these safety measures.

It’s been a challenging few months and with our clinics having been closed for such an unprecedented period of time, your ongoing support is, as always, very much appreciated.

  • Dave Williams
    Jordan Robb was treated by Dave Williams at our Altrincham clinic:
    As someone new to the area of Manchester, I had no idea which physio I should go to, so my desk based research was going to be my judge.  After eventually choosing Harris & Ross, I told a teammate at football who was quick with praise for 3 separate issues he'd had - a good start.
    From my initial consultation with Dave, I was put at ease.  His thorough but fair questioning and various physical tests seemed to point to one cause, which he was able to put into Layman's terms for me to understand.  I was reassured that my ailment would improve through a course of hands on work with Dave (acupuncture and massage) along with a series of stretches, exercises and foam rolling to conduct in my own time.  Such was my confidence in his diagnosis and treatment I followed his every word and felt a huge improvement over the course of a couple of months.  Our sessions thereafter lasted 30 minutes and I was well aware of his conscious effort not to waste time whilst still being meticulous with my treatment, squeezing in as much as possible in the short space of time.
    An aspect I particularly appreciated was his own suggestion of discharge, as I know from experience there are other physio's who would happily continue to ask you back so they can continue to earn.  This considered approach to the conclusion of my treatment was the cherry on the cake for me and has ensured that should I need to, I know where to go for a truly professional physiotherapist.
    A credit must also go to your team who were easily available should I need to switch an appointment and also your handy online exercise programme, which was a tool that echoed the slick and helpful experience with Dave.
    Keep up the terrific work and please extend my thanks.

What we have to say…

Harris & Ross

“2020 was the year I had been training the last 12 months for… to swim across the English Channel as part of a 4 person relay. I’d spent all Winter training 5 times a week, and even went abroad to train in the sea for the ultra-experience. Then COVID hit. Locked in for months with no access to a pool and all open water swimming cancelled for safety reasons. No travel and certainly no swimming across the Channel.

I was extremely positive through the dark times that it would still happen. I’d check in weekly with my coaches to see if they had been updated on anything but still nothing. It was looking like we might have to consider a 2021 swim, which I was gutted about.

Then after 3 months of no swimming, restrictions got lifted and swimming outside was allowed again. But that also meant 3 months of training to catch up on. Long sessions in the open water, cold water training and some prep events in the Lakes – in case we got the call that the swim was a goer.

And then, just like that, I was injured. Pushing my body so quickly meant everything started to hurt. Neck injury and shoulder pain that was excruciating, to the point where I would swim with one arm. I dreaded going training.

Luckily Dave from Harris and Ross saw me immediately. After explaining the tight deadline to him, he was brutally honest with me about my pain management and what we both had to do to get me ready. He told me I would have to endure a number of sessions weekly to get my body pain free, but that I would also still have to train with an element of pain.

Dave was so good. Above and beyond the acupuncture and exercises I was given, it was the honesty I appreciated. I also felt that Dave had invested himself in to my challenge and understood from a swimmer’s perspective what I had to do – even if it wasn’t going to be easy.

On the 16th August we set sail on a little fishing boat to swim from England to France. Less that 900 teams have ever completed that! The stakes were high, not only had French restrictions come in that day, but we were all tired and injured to some degree from the amount of last minute training. But, the reason why I choose the team I did was because it’s not always about physical strength, it’s 80% mental strength and we all had it that day.

Thanks to Dave, my pain was 100% manageable and I suffered no further injuries on the day or after. I honestly can’t thank him enough in helping me get to the start line.

In a time that needs positivity more than ever, my swim helped raise money for two very deserving causes in Manchester who have lost significant funding due to the pandemic. So for that, Dave I am thankful”

The benefits are wide ranging. The heat and buoyancy of the water are soothing, easing pain and enabling stretching and movements that often cannot be achieved out of the water.
