About us

HH Sports Therapy Clinic was set up by professional sports therapist Hannah Hopkins.

The Clinic is located in a beautiful large Victorian House, which forms part of a multidisciplinary Clinic known as Bronleigh House.  Bronleigh has the convenience of being within walking distance of Neath Town centre, but is situated in a great location for those travelling from Neath, Swansea, the A465, and Pontardawe.  We have our own free off road customer parking situated at both the front and rear of Bronleigh House.

Our customers include professional and amateur sportsmen and women  and people who suffer from bad backs, muscle aches and pains.  Often this can be a result of repetitive work such as heavy manual work or using a computer for long lengths of time.
