We are a team. We work with you to deliver you the outcome you deserve. Decrease pain, recovery from injury and a return to your best.

We listen. Without understanding your story, how you got to this point and what your goals are, how would it be possible to truly help you? For this reason, on your initial consultation, you will sit down with one of the team who will take a thorough case history and examination.

No rushing. We allow for plenty of time to truly understand your needs, however complex, discuss any concerns, provide you with a detailed explanation of your current complaint and if appropriate begin treatment to get you on the path to recovery. We believe in resilience over reliance.

We always aim to provide you with all the tools you need to succeed not only in the short term but the long term. This means we focus on building stronger, more mobile, more fit and more educated patients.

We aim to, within an appropriate period of care, get you functioning at a level and with the confidence to not need our constant care. We want you out there performing and functioning with independence. Your body is strong, resilient and amazing. 

Whatever the pain or injury, at Hardiman Performance, our osteopaths aim to help you recover in a timely and efficient manner that suits your current life. From office worker to athlete, if you work with our team, we will take you from a position of survive mode and take you back to a place where you can thrive again.
