Meet The Team

Adam Farr BSc (Hons) MCSP HCPC

I have worked as a Physiotherapist for over 15 years, qualifying in 2005 from the University of the West of England in Bristol. I worked for 5 years in the NHS before switching to private practice where I have worked in a number of different clinics across Gloucestershire. Since 2010 I have also worked closely with various sports clubs and teams, including Rugby Union, Rugby League and American Football.

Part way through the 2015/16 season I was offered the Head of Medical Services role at National 1 side Cinderford RFC. I have retained my position at the club now for 4 years. I was also Head Physio for the University of Gloucestershire All Golds Rugby League professional team, playing in the Kingstone Press National 1 league.

In 2016, I was fortunate enough to set up my own clinic in Highnam, Gloucester, where I continue to treat patients with a wide variety of injuries or physical problems including, sports injuries, work related or domestic injuries, and degenerative conditions such as Osteoarthritis.

Alex Oliver BSc (Hons) Sports Therapy

I have been working as a Sports Therapist for 3 years, having graduated from the University of Gloucestershire in 2017. I have been working with Adam ever since, after completing my internship with him at Cinderford RFC. Here, I worked with semi-professional athletes as well as ex-professionals. I was lucky enough to be offered a job at the club on completion of my internship and continue to work alongside the medical team.

In 2019, I was offered the role of Head of Medical at Chosen Hill RFC. I have been working here since and teaching students for the past two seasons.

As a Sports Therapist I specialize in muscoskeletal injuries and disorders. This includes, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and injury prevention. I will always aim to get you back to the level you were before injury, whether that’s elite sport or day to day living.
