Sports Medicine

Sports medicine is a highly specialised field of medicine that has undergone exceptional development during the past few years. Advances in diagnostic imaging, high quality clinical trials and changes to treatment strategies have revolutionised both treatment and results. At the Broadgate Spine & Joint Clinic our team is led by Dr Ian Beasley and Mr Peter Hamlyn, both nationally known experts in this area of medicine. The team also includes our physiotherapists, chiropractors, podiatrist and medical acupuncturist.

The clinic has fully equipped gym and assessment facilities.
