About us

“It is our ambition to help our clients lead a more active and fulfilling life, and support those who are in training to rise to the challenge and reach their athletic potential.”

JRM Physiotherapy

JRM Physiotherapy was previously known as the Holme Valley Sports Injury Clinic at Lockwood Park, where it had been established for over 20 years. In 2019 we moved to a newly renovated premises in the heart of Meltham, only a few miles from the previous clinic and easily accessible from both Huddersfield and the Holme Valley. Under the new name of JRM Physiotherapy, we offer physiotherapy and podiatry treatment in two specialised treatment rooms within a relaxing and modern clinic, with a private customer car park to the rear, and easy access to public transport links. We are situated in the traditional Yorkshire village of Meltham, with many amenities on the doorstep including cafes, bakery, butchers, churches, supermarkets, post office, pubs, beauty salons, hairdressers, and community centre.

All our physiotherapists are members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP). and registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) – the regulatory body for physiotherapy in the UK.

We are pleased to be able to offer clients additional podiatry services from HCPC registered podiatrist Sarah Macdonald.

You do not need a referral to attend for treatment - feel free to contact us for an appointment. However, we are also able to take referrals from GPs, private healthcare companies such as BUPA, and many insurance providers for treatment as part of an insurance claim. We also offer a service for local employers, whereby you can refer your employees directly to us for treatment to help them speed up recovery time and help them return to work - please feel free to call us to discuss.
