About us… Sports Corrective Therapy has a friendly team of sports therapists who run sports injury clinics in Cambridge and Congleton. It was founded by Natalie Harman who is a highly qualified Sports Therapist. In the past Natalie has worked in a busy clinic environment looking after lots of injured runners, cyclists, and loads of different sports and non-sports people. She treats all kinds of people with all kinds of injuries. She enjoys most sports but her passion is playing football. She has played for various football clubs in the past with her most recent being Bar Hill Ladies FC.
Natalie decided to move and set up another sports injury clinic in Congleton, Cheshire. Her passion is not only to help the general public with their aches and pains, but to help and support her team in developing their own skills so that they can achieve their goals in life. Natalie really does care about everyone!
Natalie believes in taking a holistic approach and fixing the cause of the pain as well as the symptoms. After all, the human body is all connected and one area of the body can cause pain in another region of the body. She will listen to you and make sure the assessment process runs thoroughly to get to the root of the problem.
Her mission is to produce a specialised treatment and rehabilitation program to meet your needs, whether that is an acute or chronic injury, a tiny niggle or a long-standing irritating pain. She can also help you get ready for those sports competitions. To find out a little more about us and team at Sports Corrective Therapy, read on.

Sports Corrective Therapy is a friendly sports injury clinic founded by Natalie Harman who is a highly-qualified Sports Injury Therapist. In the past, Natalie has worked in a busy clinic environment looking after all types of different injuries. She enjoys most sports but her passion is playing football. She has played for various football clubs in the past with her most recent being Bar Hill Ladies FC. Natalie believes in taking a holistic approach and fixing the cause of the pain as well as the symptoms. After all, the human body is an integrated system and one area of the body can cause pain in another region of the body. She will listen to you and make sure the assessment process runs thoroughly to get to the root of the problem. Don’t be worried if some of the assessment is a bit subjective, she will definitely be doing some hands-on sports therapy as soon as she has done a full case history.
Her mission is to produce a specialised treatment and rehabilitation program to meet your needs, whether that is an acute or chronic injury, a tiny niggle or a long-standing irritating pain. She can help you get ready for those sports competitions, whether it’s a running race, a triathlon or a powerlifting competition, sports corrective therapy will see that you get authentic treatment and guidance through a strengthening rehabilitation program.
Whatever you need, Natalie will make sure you go away feeling positive, whether it’s a sports massage in preparation for a running event or a structured, simple injury rehabilitation program for back pain.
She makes sure you get involved in the recovery of your injury too. The most important process of fixing your injuries is EXERCISE and MOVEMENT! That is why she is taking a keen interest in kinetics and biomechanics of the body. The human body is a chain and if one bit of the chain breaks, the other parts of the chain cannot work to the best of their ability and will not function properly which causes more problems later.
She is committed to providing her professional expertise to all her valued clients. From the moment you meet her to the end of your experience with Sports Corrective Therapy, she will ensure it is a positive, happy and confident environment.
If you walk away from your appointment feeling unhappy, Natalie will make sure she gives you a call the following day to discuss this and offer you an appointment to reassess free of charge. She will go that extra mile to make sure you get the best possible outcome. To find out more about us, please feel free to get in touch
