Martial Arts

John Fairclough

All our physiotherapists are more than capable of treating Martial Artists, however, John is our expert in this field. He acts as first contact for all other physiotherapists and provides in-service training to ensure all physiotherapists are up to date with the latest research and developments.

About John:

  • John is a black belt (2nd dan) in Shukokai Karate which he has practised for over 10 years and has progressed to senior instructor
  • Not only does John teach technical aspects of Karate, but he also uses his experience and knowledge of physiotherapy to integrate key conditioning exercises within training sessions to prevent common karate injuries and to treat students should injury occur.
  • John is also involved with Manchester Undisputed who train and develop a variety of high class mixed martial arts fighters and helps rehabilitate the often traumatic injuries which fighters sustain.
  • If you would like to make an appointment exclusively with John then he is available to our Walkden and Middleton clinics.
