Who We Are
We’re the Pain and Injury Specialists. We’ve built our reputation offering expert rehabilitation for the smallest of strains to the most complex of cases. And we’re highly-regarded by other professionals and those looking for a second opinion.
Based in our state-of-the-art facilities just outside of Manchester, we’re transforming the Pain and Injury industry. We’re passionate about recovery, and we take pride in helping people overcome their injuries and conditions – whatever they might be. With our expertise and commitment, we make sure you can do what you love: from high performance sports to everyday activities.
Our primary goal is to return you to whatever it is you want to do be doing or achieving. We start with a thorough assessment of you and your injury, which allows us to understand what the diagnosis is, what is contributing to it, what your goals are and therefore what we need to do to get you back there
We’re staunch critics of the usual guesswork, so our therapists have a wealth of expertise in the diagnosis and management of all conditions and injuries.
You will leave your initial assessment with a thorough understanding of your problem and a clear plan for how we will work together to get you back to optimal health. Our treatment plans are unique to you and we can utilise a variety of evidence-based treatments depending on your needs and your goals. Our clinic has the benefit of both private consultation rooms and a fully-equipped rehabilitation and strength and conditioning suite meaning we have the space and equipment required to care for you at all stages of your recovery.
We founded Chews Health as an independent healthcare provider to deliver clinically excellent pain and injury services.
Our mission statement remains unchanged since 2013 because we’re proud to have got this right first time!
We Promote Health.
We Encourage Fitness.
We Dispel Myths.
We are Founded in Honesty.
Whenever we review the five pillars in our mission statement we can’t help but reflect on how frustrating it is that these things are novel! Though our patients who have experienced the lack of clarity and consistency in the industry continue to remind us that we are a rare breed!
Our passion for advancing the entire pain and injury industry has led to multiple side projects including Physio Matters – the most popular Physio podcast in the world and MSKReform – a non-profit think-tank leading the way in reforming the way UK healthcare is governed and delivered.
Meet The Team
Chews Health has come a long way since its foundation in 2013 as a second-opinion consultancy business spawning a whole consultancy network, a podcast, a media company, and now a state-of-the-art Physiotherapy Clinic. Whilst our network of consultants work countrywide our main clinic headquarters are based in Timperley and it’s the people below who make it tick!
Managing Director & Physiotherapist
Jack founded Chews Health in 2013 as a company for his clinical consultancy, offering second opinions to local sports clubs and teams whose therapists and coaches were struggling to mastermind the recovery of some of their key athletes. As his philosophy and methods spread across the Physio profession and MSK industry a consultancy network emerged and eventually Chews Health services were sought after enough to need a bespoke facility.
Alongside his role as MD of Chews Health, Jack hosts The Physio Matters Podcast – a monthly show which goes out to over 20,000 therapists and is the director of MSKReform – a non-profit think-tank which is tasked with improving the industry to reduce the unjust variations in care standards. He lives locally with his wife Charlotte and their identical twin boys who are affectionately known across social media as ‘Test and Control’!
Mark joined the Chews Health ‘project’ (as it was then) in 2015 tasked with refining the clinical product and finding a suitable location from which to launch the first Chews Health clinic. It took some time to find the right venue but Chews Health HQ finally opened its doors in late 2018 and Mark has been overseeing the clinical work at the clinic ever since, ensuring standards remain high and the Chews Health product remains consistent.
Mark has extensive experience in Physiotherapy having worked across multiple sectors including NHS, sport and Occupational Health. As well as his undergraduate degree in Physiotherapy he also holds a Masters degree in Sports Injury Rehabilitation and additional certifications in Strength and Conditioning.
Chief Operations Officer & Physiotherapist
Charlotte co-founded Chews health with her now husband Jack in 2013 and was responsible for creating the infrastructure which shaped the business into what it has become today. Shaping Jack’s wild ideas of a clinical consultancy network, an inter-professional podcast, a think-tank and an events team into a coherent and successful business is down to Charlotte’s unique vision and attention to detail.
Charlotte also works part-time at Manchester Children’s hospital as a senior paediatric specialist. Her clinical expertise has helped Chews Health to become a leading name in the care of children’s pain and injury.
Physiotherapist & Childrens Injury Service Lead
Richard heads up our children’s injury service at Chews Health HQ having further specialising in the management of adolescent pain and injury following his Masters degree in Sports Physiotherapy.
It is an infamous mistake to consider children ‘just little adults’ when it comes to pain and injury but under Richard’s leadership Chews Health has developed an assessment and treatment service that leaves no stone unturned.
Richard is also a quality tennis and hockey player with his varied sporting and professional career informing his care of athletes and patients of all ages and abilities.
