The Climbing Physio:

Alex Buckley, BSc (Hons), MCSP, HPCP

Al has climbed for over 20 years. He has climbed all over Europe and really honed his skills in Welsh Valleys. He makes a regular pilgrimage to Fontenbleau to test his fenesse in grit and trains hard in the Winter at Boulder UK.

Al has years of experience of dealing with all the normal injuries that climbers suffer from fingers and shoulder to the restricted hip and back.

Alex gained his BSc (hons) degree in Physiotherapy from Manchester University in 2005, after previously gaining a BA (hons) in Sports and Health Science from the University of Wales, Bangor. He has completed post graduate MSc modules in upper limb, lower limb, radiology and Injection therapy.


Alex specialises in advanced musculoskeletal assessment and diagnosis, with a particular interest in sports injury management and rehabilitation. This has been consolidated by working within elite premier league academies for the last 7 years.


Alex has over 12 years of clinical experience and has treated national and international standard athletes. This enables him to care for patients from the very onset of an acute injury to the final stages of rehabilitation, when returning to sport. 

What do clients say about Al?

"The care and support that I have received from Alex Buckley at The Performance Lab has been fantastic . I have recently recovered from two very different injuries and would not be where I am now without the advice and support provided. Without a doubt the best Physiotherapy team in my local area. I would not go anywhere else!"
