Hi, I’m Dale, the founder of Hardiman Performance. My focus is on the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal healthcare complaints using a combination of modalities including Osteopathy, Exercise Rehab, Sports Massage Therapy, Medical Acupuncture and IASTM. Having graduated from London’s prestigious British School of Osteopathy with a Distinction in a Masters Degree, I have been fortunate enough to help thousands of patients recover from pain and injury.
I love working with a broad group of people and on a daily basis my clinic welcomes and helps many including manual workers, office workers, entrepreneurs, athletes, expectant mothers and elderly populations.
Being a former professional sportsman myself I am passionate about helping sports men and women recover from sports related injury. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to assist professional and international athletes including boxers, footballers, tennis players, martial artists, power lifters, body builders, and endurance athletes in their efforts to recovery from injury and get back to high levels of performance.
At 16 years of age I joined and spent 5 years serving in the Royal Marines. During this period of time my passion for life, health and wellness developed significantly. I had always loved a challenge so upon leaving the armed forces I dove into a competitive international career in professional mixed martial arts. During this time I was able to become British Champion.
Pushing my body on a daily basis led me to experience many injuries which left me in intense pain and frustrated at not being able to use my body to the full. I was offered surgery for a traumatic shoulder injury but being keen to avoid going under the knife, I wanted to find another way.
My specialist area is in the treatment of back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain. I have also carried out research into the treatment of athletic groin pain/hip pain and am passionate about treating sports injuries.
I pursued an intense period of osteopathy and exercise rehabilitation and amazed by the results and my speedy recovery, I choose to pursue a career in helping others live their lives free from pain so that they can also enjoy their body to the full again following injury.
If you are in physical pain and want honest, evidence based advice and rehabilitation to get you back on your path to health again then I would love to help.
