Sports testimonials

  • Jamie Staff MBE, Olympic Gold Champion 2008 Team GB

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank Andrew Buckley for being a fantastic Osteopath and Physical Therapist. Andrew has worked with me and my family for a number of years and helped me through some difficult injuries. Andrew pays close attention to detail when treating his clients and has the clients interest at heart.

    Andrew is sincere and funny and will basically make you feel a whole lot better!

  • Keely Chiericato - Professional Golfer - Let access series & Professional Golf Coach - Manston Golf Centre

    I was first recommended to Andy over 3 years ago. After a few sessions Andy had me back and competing in no time at all. The great thing about Andy and his team is that they don't give you any nonsense, you just get facts and told exactly what to do or avoid if necessary. I regularly visit the team, by having sports massage or further physio treatment throughout the year to help keep me competing at the highest level.

  • Liam Holmes: Fulham Football Club first team sports therapist

    Having worked with Andy at both his clinic and at Fulham Football Club I have learnt a great deal from Andy, he allowed me to observe him work when I was still learning at university and the knowledge he imparted was invaluable. He has been a mentor to me and I cannot thank him enough for the continued support I receive. I have recommended a number of people to Team Buckley and every one of them has a glowing reference of Andy and his team.

  • Yiannis Christodoulou

    I came to Team Buckley nearly 5 years ago when I was plagued by injuries and saw Andy Buckley. From day one I never looked back and they got me going again and keeping the injuries to a minimal. This also opened myself up to more sensible training that has resulted in me competing for GB at Age Group level, where I have won European and National medals and now the GB Aquathlon Captain for the world championships.

    Not only has their service helped me achieve this they have also motivated me and got me to the start line of important races. You get top service from everyone at the practice and they will get you to a race and sort your injuries out. I highly recommend Team Buckley and I am proud to have them as a sponsor.

  • Tom Millard, Canterbury Harriers

    I began running in 2012 and after six months I was dropping out of races with knee injuries caused by IT band trouble. This never really went away for the next year until I visited Team Buckley. The programme they put me on got me back to full fitness and enabled me to drop three minutes off my personal best at 10k over that summer whilst strengthening my lower body to complete as a runner in local races. I even managed to finish my first marathon.

  • Phil Anthony, Great Britain Ultra marathon runner and PhD researcher in Sport & Exercise Science

    I would like to say a massive thank you to Andy and all the staff at Team Buckley for their continued support over the past year and getting me to the start line in for the 50km Ultra Marathon World Championships in one piece, the training that ultra-marathon running requires would simply not have been possible without them. It is clear from the moment that you work through the door that all of the Team Buckley are truly committed to ensuring everyone receives the same professional treatment and they really cannot do enough to make you feel welcome.

  • James Wren

    From training for my first triathlon to competing for Great Britain's age-group team, Team Buckley have been incredibly supportive. Not only are they experts in body maintenance and repair, their knowledge of my sport-specific requirements was also second to none. The aftercare that is provided is outstanding and I still use the stretches that I was provided with during my rehabilitation. Whether it's an injury or a recovery massage that is required, Team Buckley are always prepared to accomodate their patients.

  • Phil Hurst

    I have been coming to see Andy for a year and a half now and would like to thank him for all the support he has given me. I was run down with injuries during the summer of 2014 and didn’t think I could come back to competing at a high level again. With his knowledge and expertise, I was able to get back to doing what I love and run every day pain free. The physiotherapy he provided me throughout the year allowed me to claim my first GB vest and compete at the European Championships.

  • Mark Patterson

    Having worked together during my playing days at Gillingham Football Club, Andrew has helped me recover from many injuries including rehabilitation after my knee surgery. I regularly refer players and friends to him.

  • Steven Tiley, Professional golfer

    Being a professional golfer on the European tour and Challenge tours I have had lots of treatments from many top physios around the world. For me the physios at Team Buckley are right up there with them. I would recommend anyone in the South East of England to make the trip to Canterbury to get required treatment at Team Buckley you won't have any regrets.

  • Harriett Yea, Professional/GB Basketball Player

    Playing basketball professionally and playing for Great Britain, you need a great Osteopath and Physiotherapist. Team Buckley has helped me with many injuries whether big or just twinges in my body.

  • Wendy Smith (Ashford marathon 2016)

    Thank you judy once again for helping me to get there injury free......What you did was amazing. I don't think I could have done it without your massages.

  • Brian Sparks, Founder & Head Coach at Positive Impact Golf; Author of the book 'Positive Impact Golf'; PGA Professional & Qualified Performance Coach

    I first met Andy Buckley at the beginning of 2010 after receiving a recommendation from one of my clients. Since then I have seen him regularly and have also been treated by two other members of his team. Their combined efforts have given me the feeling of getting younger, not older, at the age of 60!

  • Holly Jackson, Eventer

    Team Buckley have played a huge part in enabling me to continue to ride and compete over the last 5 years, despite several injuries and a long term back problem.

    Andy and Judy understand that my sport is not just a hobby, it's a lifestyle. They work with me to make sure that I'm in shape to look after my horses every day of the year, not just during competition season. Their supportive approach and the consistently high standard of treatment mean that I can continue to do what I love. So thank you Team Buckley!

  • Jon and Jo Gore, parents of Keziah and Jael Gore, Canterbury Rhythmic Gymnasts

    Over the last four years Andy has been part and parcel of Keziah's and Jael's success in their respective gymnastics careers. He counts it a privilege to serve them in a professional, yet warm and accessible manner.

  • Sam Spare, England Basketball National Development Manager

    Andy provided excellent support to the players who took part in our Final Fours tournament. His professionalism, particularly his preparation, knowledge and approachability, really helped make the event a success.

  • Isla Scott - Physiotherapist

    I first met Andy when we started our MSc in Physiotherapy together in 2007. I have always been impressed by his skill set having combined the disciplines of Osteopathy and Physiotherapy with a background in personal training. Andy is addicted to excellence and detail and this was the reason that I requested that he help me run the Polyclinic at the 2011 Commonwealth Youth Games in the Isle of Man where I was the Lead Physiotherapist.

  • Leon McCarron


    In preparation for my upcoming 3000 mile trek and TV expedition from Mongolia to Hong Kong, I used the services of Andy Buckley and his team at Team Buckley to help me keep injury free and be in the best shape possible. I originally had a slight knee problem, which Andy quickly diagnosed and worked out a program to combat. He also designed a program for me to improve core strength and mobility, and saw me regularly to check on my progress and loosen up key muscles.

  • Becky Kingsnorth

    My mum first recommended me to Andy for rehab after I broke my ankle nine years ago. I trampoline four times a week (up to 12 hours a week) and compete nationally all over the country. Over the years I have gained many niggling problems and a few more serious inju-ries, mainly my back, ankles and knee. Most recently Andy has helped me recover from ankle surgery which was necessary following an injury; this has included treatment, rehabilitation exercises and advice. Andy understands how important it is to me to get back to training and competitions as quickly as possible.

  • Katrina McDonald (Bath University)

    Andrew Buckley worked with the Team Bath Judo Programme at the 2009 British University Championships in Sheffield. He and a colleague, Matthew Standford, aided the team over the two day tournament with physiotherapy and osteopathy support.

  • Professor David Ferry, University of Wales Cardiff

    'Early January 2008, a real mid-life incident'

    Following a mountain bike accident in January 2008 I was left with a couple of spiral fractures to my right femur, a fractured clavicle and some heavy bruising and nerve damage to my lower spine.

  • Sarah Turner, A level Student

    I am student who is passionate about dance and I'm aspiring to become a dance teacher. I dance several days a week. I was devastated when I partly dislocated my shoulder meaning I couldn't dance without it coming out of place. I got advised to see Team Buckley by a friend, who had seen them before with a different problem and was extremely satisfied with the outcome.

  • Timothy Harrison

    I just wanted to say a big thank you to you all for in getting me back to playing football after my cruciate ligament injury. 12 months ago I wasn't sure if I would ever play again

    The advice, support and physiotherapy have been excellent. Furthermore the training sessions on Tuesdays really helped me overcome the psychological barriers to returning (which were greater than I ever imagined)- Looking back I think they were invaluable

  • Dr Louise Mansfield, Senior Lecturer in the Sociology of Sport

    I injured my lower back doing a circuit training session and walked into Team Buckley one morning in tremendous pain and with limited movement. I did not have an appointment but Andrew moved his busy schedule to see me straight away. He was precise with his diagnosis and professional and effective with his treatment and within four sessions, over less than two weeks, I recovered perfectly. He is an enthusiastic, committed, knowledgeable and experienced professional who understands both the mechanics of injury and the emotions surrounding the injury process.
