'My passion is to understand how your body works, and what treatment you need - my priority will always be to get you back to doing what matters to you at your personal best - whether that's simply enjoying life, staying fit and active, recovering from injury or improving your performance'
Dr Christoph Datler
Clinic Director & registered Osteopath, PhD MOst MSc, GOsC 9006
Christoph is the founder and clinical lead of Blackheath Sports Clinic. With a background in competitive sports himself, extensive academic training and years of experience treating high level athletes, the general public as well as patients with complicated pain presentations, you can rest assured that your health concerns are in best hands - no matter if you are suffering from acute back pain, shoulder problems, recovering from injury or just need a general MOT for your body!
You don't need to be a sportsman or sportswoman to benefit from Christoph's skillful treatment approach. But if you are, you know he will understand exactly what strains are placed on your body while performing.
Inspiration - Treatment that works for you!
"I have experienced first hand what it means to have pain and suffer from injuries that prevent you from doing what you love. Competing successfully at the national level in Beach Volleyball, I have spent hours doing rehabilitation exercises and on the treatment table as a patient myself: Despite suffering a herniated disc and a complicated ankle fracture among other injuries, I still enjoy competing and won English National Beach Volleyball Masters in 2015 and 2016 as well as being consistently ranked in the TOP 3 of the English National Championship.
Combining this personal background with my extensive experience of treating musculoskeletal injuries, pains and imbalances gives me a deeper understanding of what it takes to get patients better and back on track. My passion is to understand what your body needs and my priority will always be to get you back to doing what matters to you at your personal best - whether that's simply enjoying life, staying fit and active, recovering from injury or improving your performance."

Clare Adams, MOst
Associate Osteopath, Pilates Coach and Fitness Instructor
Clare Adams graduated in 2015 from the prestigious British School of Osteopathy in London, where she worked in the university clinic treating the general public but also gained fantastic skills in the specialist clinics for expectant mothers, children, sports men and women as well as the elderly.
Since the start of 2016, Clare has joined Blackheath Sports Clinic on several occasions to treat patients, attend continuous professional development seminars and discuss the management of complicated patient presentations.
Clare is currently only available on request, as she also works in clinics outside London in Hertfordshire, but we hope that she will be a constant addition to the team in the near future.
Although we are currently not recruiting actively, we are always looking for special addition to our growing team - so if you can bring that little extra and additional skill to our clinic, get in touch!
