News: Former footballer expands into the Keepmoat Stadium


A former professional footballer is defying economic trends in the health sector by expanding his Rotherham physiotherapy business.

Kristian Hackett, director of Anston Physiotherapy, has moved into the Keepmoat Stadium at Doncaster.

Kristian, who played for Leeds United and Bury FC, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity to be located in such a prominent location. It's an exciting time for the company to be growing in the current climate when other health related programmes, companies and even the NHS are seeing major cuts."

Kristian qualified as a sports therapist in 2000 before completing an honours degree in physiotherapy. He has worked privately for Sheffield United Football Club and within the NHS for Bradford Teaching Hospitals, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals and Rotherham Primary Care Trust, progressing to a senior level within the NHS.

Based in Anston, Rotherham, the business was launched in 2008 and has won a reputation for providing immediate access to musculoskeletal and paediatric physiotherapy, sports massage, acupuncture and hypnotherapy.

Kristian added: "The facilities in the Keepmoat Stadium are second to none and it's great to have a high quality fitness suite just down the corridor for patients to take advantage of - if needed during rehabilitation."

Shane Chalmers, chief executive of the Stadium Management Company said: "We are very pleased to be able to offer this service and I believe it compliments both businesses and customers of the stadium to have Anston Physiotherapy onboard."
