Sports Massage in Birmingham

Sports Massage is a great way to maintain your muscles whilst training, for helping to support you whilst you recover form injury, and whilst you return to sport. We have patients at every level of sport; from those just getting back into exercise to professional athletes.

Your Sports Massage Treatment


Your first appointment will involve your sports massage therapist taking a detailed history regarding your current complaint and any relevant previous episodes. You will then get 25 or 55 minutes of sports massage, depending on your requirement. The treatment may be focused on a particular area, for example your legs if you are preparing for a marathon, or the approach may be more global if you simply feel generally stiff.

    Our Approach & What to Expect on Your First Visit

    When you book your first appointment our admin team will help you with any query you have and will send you all the documentation and information regarding the appointment

    Can I refer myself to Bluebell? Do you accept Charity funding? Do you accept private medical insurance?

    Yes, we accept referrals from anywhere. Bluebell Hydro and Physio do receive referrals from doctors but we also accept self-referrals and referrals from family, carers, solicitors, case managers, rehabilitation companies, consultants and many more.

    How soon can I have a physiotherapy appointment?

    Bluebell Hydro and Physio have no waiting lists. We are normally able to arrange an assessment within  24-72 hours. We can often provide same day appointments.

    What should I wear? What should I bring with me to the physiotherapy assessment?

    Suitable clothing depends on the nature of your condition. It is likely that you will be required to undress to some degree to allow your physiotherapist to see and treat your problem. Loose clothing needs to be worn for the initial assessment.

    To get the maximum benefit out of your initial assessment you should bring with you:

    • Suitable clothing
    • Relevant medical reports or letters
    • Relevant scan or x-ray reports
    • A relative if your memory is reduced
    • Any supports / braces / orthotics you use
    • Your running shoes if your condition is running related
    • A carer/family member(s) to assist with dressing and transfers after assessment if needed.
    Will I receive treatment on my first visit?

    If booked as a combined Initial Assessment and first treatment session, treatment is usually provided on the first visit and you will generally be advised of things to complete before your next treatment session. With very complex cases treatment may not begin at the first visit. Wherever possible treatment will always be provided at the first visit.

    "Very impressed with our experience. My mum has received a lot of help over the past few weeks with her back and hip problems. The physiotherapist was able to locate the source of the main pain and with tailored exercises her condition has improved significantly.Highly recommend Bluebell!"

    Marta Retenaga

    "I cannot recommend Bluebell highly enough. The facilities are great - clean and warm. The staff are kind, professional and always incredibly helpful. They helped my daughter whilst she was unable to walk or bear any weight when she was suffering from post viral myalgia following a covid infection. I will be forever grateful for all their support, in and out of the water."

    Emma F

    "I couldn't describe how much the hydrotherapy has helped my younger brother with his tightness and spasticity! They make it incredibly fun and have adapted their treatment to suit his disability and blindness. If you are looking for hydrotherapy/physio for yourself or a loved one just go, it's worth every penny."

    Ibraheem Mustafa

    "Have been using the service for months now for my little boy who has spastic quadraplegia cerebral palsy. The staff were very friendly and helped him to work gently at his pace using all parts of his body. Now he can't wait to get back in the pool! He loves his sessions and they've adapted everything to suit his needs. Would recommend it to all!!"
