About SPI ProHealth

Your Sports Physiotherapy Experts

Sports Physiotherapy International (SPI) was established in 1995 by Philippa Stewart and Sheilagh Anderson, long time business partners and well known physiotherapists in sports physiotherapy and sports medicine management. Together with their team of experienced physiotherapists, SPI provides global sports physiotherapy services at international sporting events, to elite teams and well known organisations worldwide.


For the past 24 years, Philippa and Sheilagh have been travelling the world accompanying famous sports personalities, celebrities and sports teams on tours and at championship events. SPI clients are primarily elite athletes performing on the world stage in golf, tennis, cricket and rugby. At an international level, SPI works with the WTA, ATP, International Tennis Federation, PGA Tour, European Golf Tour, the Asian Tour, LPGA and the Ladies European tour. In Hong Kong, we work with the Hong Kong Tennis Association, Hong Kong Badminton Association, Hong Kong Rugby Football Union national squads and the Hong Kong Cricket Association where the senior Men’s team is in the ICC High Performance Programme.


Since 1999, SPI has been managing physiotherapy clinic services in China in a partnership with the Beijing International SOS Clinic which, since 2015, is now managed by Raffles Medical Group.  Through this partnership, SPI has a flagship clinic in Beijing and smaller satellite clinics situated around China. In Hong Kong, SPI has an integrated clinic with a high performance fitness gym, Pinnacle Performance, and facilitates their full physiotherapy and rehabilitation services to clients particularly tailor-made for athletes and teams.


With more than two decades of experience, SPI has joined the ProHealth Asia network of healthcare specialists to expand their healthcare services.
