Due to recent outbreak of Covid-19 Athlete Lab – Cannon Street have closed for the forseeable future. We are now taking video osteopathy consultations. For for information please click here – Video Consultations

Cannon Street – Athlete Lab

Our Cannon Street clinic is based in the heart of city at the Athlete Lab Studio. Here our team specialise in sporting injuries for athletes such as cyclists, runners, triathletes and footballers. We are a two minute walk from Monument, Cannon Street, Bank and close to London Bridge station.

Athlete Lab was first established in 2012 by keen amatuer triathletes who were looking to find the balance between busy working and training schedules.  They developed the idea of Athlete Lab from a desire for a business district training facility that offered something more relevant for training other than spinning bikes. With the growing popularity of cycling and triathlons in the UK, Athlete Lab made its debut in Cannon Street in 2014.

Purus chose Athlete Lab to be their City based clinic due to the excellent facilities on offer and desire for people to improve their performance. We opened in 2017 and in that time have developed a great relationship with the members and helped numerous overcome their injuries. Our aim is to help maximise the most out of your body and perform to the best of your ability.

Gareth Degg

Gareth Degg

Sports Osteopath

For the past six years Gareth has been working closely with a number of high performing Track and Field Athletes where he has helped many athletes achieve personal best times and win medals on a national and international stage. He is currently lead therapist for Reece Prescod, the most recent British athlete to run sub 10 seconds.

When he is not in clinic he can be found at Lee Valley Athletics Centre or Brunel University playing a key role in many athletes’ health and performance.

As part of his role with athletics he has travelled to different parts of the world for competitions and training camps, including: California, Arizona, Doha, Colombia and Gareth will be travelling to Italy at the end of July as team Osteopath for the Great Britain U20’s team competing in the European Junior Championships.

Gareth’s ideas around health, well-being and fitness are centered around a global approach to dysfunction – meaning the site of pain/problem is frequently only the victim and the true culprit of dysfunction is elsewhere. His approach will often highlight areas that patients were unsuspecting of but then prove to alleviate their original issue.

Daleel Madarbukus (M.Ost) graduated from the University College of Osteopathy in 2018, the largest osteopathic teaching institution in Europe. Daleel has been and is still heavily involved with sports, particularly Rugby, where he coaches and is club osteopath for Haringey Rhinos RFC, which has only enhanced his interest in sporting injuries and rehabilitation. 

Daleel is also working with Speedworks Training alongside Mark Hokan, which works with elite and development sprinters to help them achieve their goal in running faster and getting winning championships. 

 He is interested in both acute and chronic pain, pain management and biomechanics of the body. Daleel is also interested in post operative care, in this day and age, most people will need surgery at some point in their lives, and getting the right care and management, he feel, is crucial to making a better and quicker recovery. Using anything from breathing exercises, circulation exercises, stretches and strengthening, I feel we as Osteopaths, can play a vital role in patient care.

 His clinical experience includes: NHS GP practice (East Street); HIV patients (Paul Blanchard Clinic @ UCO Clinic and Royal Free Hospital); elderly patients (Lucy Brown House Clinic); Sports Clinic (UCO). 

Sam Tingman

Sam Tingman

Sports Massage Therapist

Sam started soft tissue therapy in 2015 gaining experience working for a clinic which was situated alongside the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital where he experienced referrals from various units of the Hospital. The clinic was run by a charity called the disability foundation which allowed him to work with people with various disabilities and from all walks of life. This allowed him to develop his understanding and experience in a clinic environment.

 He also began to work closely with professional dancers from Matthew Bourne, Ballet Black and East London Rugby Club and has found a love for elite sport and now works with premier league football team Crystal Palace FC.

If you are dealing with stress, anxiety, headaches, muscular niggles or if you are wanting to improve your performance in your desired sporting activity this ones for you. Sam believes that everyone will benefit from soft tissue treatments.

Valerie Fry

I can’t say enough about the professionalism and through care both Millie and Julia have given me. They each have asked all of the right questions, with Julia correctly diagnosing where two other Physios and trainers have failed me. They each have also followed up with me between sessions.
I’m very optimistic about my progress under their care. The facility is very nice, as is the woman’s loo. All around great experience!”

David Woodfield

I’ve had a few physios over the years & rarely found someone who I think ‘gets’ it. Laura is the exception – she’s been able to pinpoint and explain my injuries eerily well from day 1! I’d go out of my way to be treated by her if needed.”

Donal Moran

“Excellent service and attention to individual needs and requirements from the team at Purus, Mark Hokan in particular. Very knowledgeable and has helped me stay injury free and on track during heavy training segments for a number of marathons now. Highly recommended.”
