Fred Braithwaite


Fred constantly builds on his links between therapy and strength training because this is the only scientifically proven way to make a real difference. No treatment modality works in isolation and a mixture of well-practiced manual therapy and targeted strength training has a proven track record to long lasting recovery and injury prevention.


Fred built the Stronglines facility to enable well rounded therapy. He then built the Stronglines family to ensure a solid skill set that is delivered by professionals to get the best results.

Sophie Slope


Having worked predominantly in the NHS, I have a keen interest in orthopaedics, particularly shoulder injuries and rehabilitation.
I recently completed a mas
ters in Sports Medicine, Exercise and Health with the aim of making the sports medicine approach to treatment  available to everyone, not just elite athletes. This also allowed me to research concussion assessments in rugby, aiming to influence better concussion management at amateur level clubs.
