We are a team of Sports Medicine Specialists and our sole aim is to provide expert care in the field; all in one place. We support each other in order to optimise our patients’ results. So, whoever you are, whatever your injury, we’re here to help. The Pure team is led by international doctors and therapists that have worked for various national teams, and at Olympic and World Championship events, in a range of sports. These experiences have provided us with a unique understanding of the challenges professional athletes face.
We believe that the principles of sports medicine at the elite level, can be just as effective for ordinary individuals in their everyday lives. Whether you have torn a ligament in the last minutes of a Cup match, have persistent backache, or experience discomfort while at work or playing sport, we have the time to listen and the expertise to get you back to your best.
