A physio team which has worked with world champions is relocating to Malvern.

Bradford’s Veterinary Physiotherapy and its human clinic, Bradford’s Physiotherapy, have relocated from Ledbury to the Open Space Business Centre on Blackmore Park Road.

Based at the new offices are consultant chartered physiotherapists Tim and Rhiannon Bradford, along with their existing team of physios and office staff.

Tim has worked with many of the UK’s elite riders and their horses, including Carl Hester, Charlotte Dujardin, Spencer Wilton and Jonty Evans, as well as amateur riders and owners across the region.

Rhiannon, a Specialist Physiotherapist with 20 years experience, is the human clinical lead and will treat clients at the new base as well as managing the business’ canine physiotherapy caseload.

She said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have moved into Malvern.

“It’s a fantastic base for our growing human physio client base and the canine work we do in partnership with linked Veterinary practices.

“We’re looking forward to expanding our client base and continuing to offer our existing clients our bespoke physiotherapy programmes.

“We like to think of ourselves as a second or even third-tier service, solving long-term mobility issues for clients, sometimes when other practices have struggled to diagnose and effectively treat.”

Tim added: “Bradford’s is unique, in that we treat both horse and rider.

“Both Rhiannon and I have decades of experience working across the NHS and private practice, as well as our specialist equine experience.

"We like to think it’s what sets us apart.”

Tim and Rhiannon set up Bradford’s 13 years ago initially from their home in Yarkhill, Herefordshire, and the business has continued to grow ever since.

“People think physiotherapy is something you should do post-injury or for long-term back problems,” said Rhiannon.

“But for athletes and amateur sport enthusiasts, incorporating a physiotherapy programme into their training regime can actually prevent injury.

“We’re thrilled to be in Malvern and look forward to the next 13 years in business.”
