South Coast Sports & Physiotherapy Clinic at Rye Memorial Hospital

07983 494829

Chris qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist from West Middlesex University Hospital. She worked in London for many years both within the NHS and private hospitals before setting up her own private Physiotherapy Clinic in West London.

Moving from London in 1990, Chris initially worked at the Sussex Clinic and in her own practice. She set up the new physiotherapy service at Bupa Hospital Hastings which then became Spire Sussex Hospital. After spending some time managing the Physiotherapy and Radiology Departments she decided that she would like to return to clinical Physiotherapy.

South Coast Sports Clinic was set up in 2010 and treats all musculoskeletal conditions as well as sports injuries. The service includes providing a clinical diagnosis of your condition where possible, treatment / advice to avoid injury recurrence and individually tailored rehabilitation programmes including exercises and stretches.

Common conditions treated include:

* Tendon, ligament and joint strains

* Spinal - neck, thoracic and lumbar problems including disc problems

* Shoulder injuries including rotator cuff, shoulder impingement and capsulitis

* Tennis and Golfers elbow

* Lower limb biomechanics

* Pelvis dysfunction

* Post-operative hip and knee replacement

The clinic opened at Rye initially at the Rye Medical Centre, recently transferring to the Rye Memorial Hospital where there was more space available and a Total Gym was kindly provided. A Total Gym provides gravity resisted rehabilitation following joint / ligamentous injuries which is a more realistic way of regaining function.

The Total Gym is used widely in the USA for both gym and physiotherapy, more details of this versatile equipment and its benefits can be found at
