About Plymouth Sports Injury Clinic
Experience and qualifications
In 2010 Chiropractor Kevin Kelly opened Plymouth Sports Injury Clinic operating from his Peverell Clinic, the clinic serves people from Devon and Cornwall.
Kevin Kelly graduated with a Sports Science degree in 1980 and a Doctor of Chiropractic in 1986. He works both for the NHS and in private practice and has also worked as the Plymouth Albion RFC. Chiropractor.
As the first person in the UK to graduate with both a Sports Science degree and a Doctor of Chiropractic, Kevin Kelly has a unique insight into the treatment of sports and other joint injuries. He has successfully treated thousands of patients and having been a keen sportsman himself feels that the ability to empathise with the patient and understanding the mechanisms of injury is paramount for an effective treatment.
His area of speciality is the treatment of the Myofascial system. In 2012 he developed the Myofascial Correction™ system of treatment which is taught to chiropractors and other health professionals. It is particularly effective for treating sports injuries such as sprains and strains to joints as these have a large myofascial component.
Mr Kelly’s philosophy is to treat patients as he would like to be treated himself, and it is this attitude that has allowed him to become the popular practitioner he is today, as well as the vast experience he has gained from treating the general public, as well as International, Olympic and Professional athletes.
