A highly experienced sports injury specialist who boasts senior level involvement in two Olympic Games and British teams has acquired one of the region’s leading physiotherapy clinics.

The Lilleshall Clinic, based at Lilleshall National Sports Centre, has been purchased by Jamal Mashlab, who has over 13 years’ experience in elite sports physiotherapy and who has worked with some of the UK’s biggest sporting names.

Jamal explained: “I’m delighted to have taken on one of the country’s leading physiotherapy and rehabilitation centres. Lilleshall National Sports Centre welcomes many of the country’s most influential sporting figures, and is also home to several National Governing Bodies of Sport, including Archery GB, the English Institute of Sport, as well as The British Gymnastics Association. It’s a fantastic opportunity to be based here and in bringing my experience to Shropshire.” 

Following his time as Head Physiotherapist for British Gymnastics, Jamal held the role of Head of Physiotherapy at the English Institute of Sport in the West Midlands, as well as Head Physiotherapist for the Archery GB Team. And, with a wealth of experience across the sports rehab industry, Jamal will provide a range of sports-related services to both professional athletes as well as the local community.

Jamal added: “The Lilleshall National Sports Centre of course has an enviable reputation as home to many of the UK’s top athletes, but our services are also open to everyone and they encompass much more than physiotherapy alone. We specialise in all kinds of rehabilitation for patients of all ages and provide injury prevention, sports massage, strength and conditioning, as well as sports medicine.”
