Rob Hicks and the Witty, Pask & Buckingham Physiotherapists

The aim of The Hernia Clinic is to provide a service where the surgeon, Rob Hicks and the Physiotherapy team at Witty, Pask and Buckingham Chartered Physiotherapists can work together to deliver excellence in the treatment and rehabilitation of Hernias and related conditions.

What we do at The Hernia Clinic
Our approach is to provide the complete package – Integrated Physiotherapy and Surgical assessment, Physiotherapy treatment or surgery as appropriate and a full rehabilitation programme back to work and sport from the amateur to the elite professional.
Witty, Pask and Buckingham
img_0623Witty, Pask and Buckingham is a private physiotherapy practice in Billing Road, Northampton. There are currently twelve physiotherapists working at the practice with a combined experience of over 125 years. 

Phil Pask and Mark Buckingham have had extensive experience in physiotherapy in sports, as has many of the physios at the practice. Phil is the current England and Lions Rugby Physiotherapist and Mark worked for EIS and UK Athletics through two Olympic Games. The practice however caters for everybody and the majority of patients are 'normal' people. Please look at the website, for more information.

The involvement in The Hernia Clinic has come about through a mutual interest and understanding of this often poorly diagnosed condition, especially the more subtle issues that sports people can struggle with. Following several years of honing the assessment and rehabilitation of this condition with Rob Hicks we decided that there was a place for a detailed and informed website for information and referral purposes as well as a medium for a more high tech rehabilitation experience.
