Commited to Excellence

The Sport Orthotics team have a wealth of experience in orthotics and biomechanics and have collectively over 25 years experience in both the NHS and private practice. Sport Orthotics was started in 2007 and began life as part of ATHelite running and triathlon store in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire near Glasgow. This has now expanded into our newest clinic in the Heart of Glasgow city centre.

Given the background of the team it is of no surprise that they are the preferred orthotic providers of a large number of running clubs, SPL and SFL football teams, rugby clubs and other professional sportsmen.

We see people of all levels of activity from the professional athelite to people simply wishing to be a little more comfortable in their daily activities.

Our commitment to constantly trying to improve what we do and our desire to be the best has led to us being awarded the whatclinic.com 5 star award and also the 3 best rated which recognises the top e rated clinics in our area

These awards are decided purely through customer feedback and as such is one we are immensely proud of!
