Callum Jones Rowing“During summer 2010 I had been having difficulty training and competing due to an injured shoulder. Having been seen by doctors and various physios nothing seemed to help until I saw a consultant at Oxford who after an MRI scan referred me to Rob Leather. Within a few minutes on my first visit Rob had identified the problem and quickly helped me back to full fitness. The next year I had what appeared to be a groin injury, which again doctors and physios and MRI scan seemed unable to pinpoint or help and my training and competition came to a halt for several weeks. As a last resort I went back to Rob who again diagnosed the problem in minutes and with his help I was back to fitness very quickly. Since then I had a back injury and with Rob’s help, treatment and advice I have been able to fully train and compete at the highest level. Injuries are inevitable in sport, I have the greatest confidence in Rob as a physiotherapist and he is now my first port of call.”

Charles DagnallRob has treated me for a variety of injuries over that past 5 years. Whatever the issue, whether it be post operation care, or a simple muscle strain, Rob has guided me through the process of recovery, from diagnosis through rehabilitation, with care and acute attention to detail, leaving no stone unturned to make sure that recovery is as swift as possible yet thorough therefore preventing further injury.

I have used a number of physio’s in my career, and can confidently say that Rob is of the highest standard, and I can trust his judgement implicitly, which isn’t always the case in his profession.

I have recommended his services to family and colleagues at work, all of whom speak glowingly of his abilities.

Pete McKnightHe has had the privilege of working with some of the best Cricketers in the world through his work with Leicestershire County Cricket and his support to a number of England Programmes through the ECB, where he has been a physio of choice. Rob has also worked with athletes from Olympic sports at Loughborough University, so extends his experience to other team sports and individual sports such as Hockey, Triathlon and Swimming, to name just a few.

At Leicestershire County Cricket Rob has singlehandedly set up a highly effective physio department, where, among other things, he has developed effective and time efficient rehabilitation protocols in order to return Cricketers to play in the in the shortest time that is feasibly possible. Throughout this process, however, he has not neglected his professionalism and duty of care in doing a thorough job.

Rob is extremely well qualified in a number of different areas and continues to push his professional development forwards. One of Rob’s expertise lies in functionally screening his athletes and putting protocols in place to iron out imbalances and create a well-rounded sports person who is robust enough to withstand the rigours of modern sports. His injury reduction statistics are a testament to his effectiveness in this area.

Rob works well both as a team member and leader, is highly organised and works well under pressure. All these skills have been honed through working in the high-pressure environment of professional sports.

Through his work at his private clinic, Rob has also gained a wealth of experience in working with the young athletes, the elderly, non-athletes, clinical referrals and people from all walks of life. He is able to adapt his skills from elite level sports to working with the general public with the highest level of professionalism and empathy.

I had the privilege of working alongside Rob at Leicestershire County Cricket and through the ECB for a number of of years, and would not hesitate to recommend him as both a highly skilled and able physiotherapist as well as an individual of immense quality. Rob comes with my highest recommendation.”
