The Rob Leather Physiotherapy team has developed and attained agreements to provide Physiotherapy services to both England Cricket and Leicestershire County cricket club.
We are in a privileged position in being the sole provider of physiotherapy services to Leicestershire County cricket club since 2010. Within Leicestershire Cricket we provided daily physiotherapy services for all the professionally contracted cricketers. This involves managing all injuries sustained by the players and coaches as well as attempting to prevent these episodes from occurring by screening and risk profiling the players and the training environment.
We are instrumental in developing the training programmes in conjunction with Strength and conditioning coaches to ensure that the players are specifically fit and able to perform at the highest level. We spend a lot of time in the off season doing injury prevention work within the gym with the sole aim of maximising elite sporting performance.
Rob Leather has been involved with England cricket since 2009 providing physiotherapy services initially to the England Development pathway for a winter training period and overseas tour to India with the England U17’s
