A Sports Injury Specialist from Swindon has started up his own health and fitness business, from his own home in Stratton.

Nick White, 48, from Stratton says he has taken a leap of faith to pursue his passion for health and fitness. 

Nick has launched TiME Clinics from his home in the Stratton area of Swindon where he helps people recover from sports injuries, build up mobility and fitness after an operation or improve their quality of life through hands-on therapy and developing consistent habits when it comes to movement and exercise.

Nick, who was a plumber for many years, says he has loved sports and fitness since childhood, participating in sports from American football to body building.

He first came to Swindon in the 1990s, took part in and then ran martial arts classes and was integral to the Swindon Storm American Football team.

Nick said: “However, a major turning point came for me in 2012 when I broke my leg very badly playing American football.  After two operations to put my leg back together, I found there was very little support to get me back on my own two feet.

"Due to years of being involved in fitness, I started to create my own rehabilitation programme as I wanted to be able to continue to enjoy sport and keep my fitness going. I’m now fitter and stronger than I’ve ever been so it worked!” 

As a result of that experience, and with the support of his wife Julie, Nick decided to gain formal qualifications and is now a qualified Level 5 sports and clinical therapist and human movement specialist. He also holds Levels 3 and 4 in sports and remedial massage therapy. In 2021, he committed to become a qualified osteopath and is a first year student with the College of Osteopaths in London.

Both Nick and Julie say they are committed to leading a healthy and active lifestyle together. They pride themselves on eating a healthy diet and they train with weights together, participate in competitive fitness events, and are keen ramblers and caravanners. 

Nick has created and opened a purpose-built clinic at his home in Swindon with plans to expand and offer aligned treatments with other vetted therapists in the future. 

He added: “I’m able to support people with back, neck, shoulder, hip or knee pain, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, tennis elbow, general sports injuries to help them safely resume the activities they love. 

“I particularly support women and men in their 40s and 50s, though my oldest client so far has been 85!” 

TiMe Clinics (which stands for Therapy, Integrated Movement and Education) offers support for all types of pain following a sporting injury or through any other activity. More information can be found at https://www.timeclinics.co.uk
