After working alongside an experienced Sports Therapist and a Podiatrist for a number years, OPB Sports Therapy was founded in February 2016 by owner Oliver Brodie.
Working with Hullensians RUFC as the teams Sports Therapist, Oliver became exposed to a wealth of experience including emergency first aid and the management of soft tissue injuries.
Whilst working with Hullensians RUFC, Oliver was invited to accompany England Community Lions RFL as their Sports Therapist on their 2 international tours of South Africa and Fiji.
Oliver first started on the road offering mobile massage therapy sessions whilst he built up his client base. Due to the success Oliver experienced on the road it became apparent that he needed to find a location to work from.
Oliver was delighted to find The Temple, a gym based on Hesslewood Office Park. A new purpose built gym with treatment rooms.
Year on year as Oliver's skills and experience grew, more satisfied clients recommend his services to others.
