Our History

Blue Sky Physiotherapy was founded by Donna Sanderson-Hull in 2007. Having worked in New Zealand, she spent much of her early career working in professional rugby, including 6 seasons as physiotherapist for Bristol Rugby and a stint at the England team leading up to the 2003 World Cup. Donna then worked with pro-rugby player turned knee surgeon, Jonathan Webb at his clinic. Here she was able to further develop her knowledge of the treatment and rehabilitation of complex injuries, particularly in a sporting context.

Donna decided to open her own practice, based at
Redwood Country Club for 8 years. This practice is now located at the Clifton College Sports Grounds.

From the success of the Clifton practice, Donna opened satellite clinics in Winford and a flagship clinic in Ashton, which also runs the Concussion service. More recently she has opened her 4th satellite clinic within the Yeo Valley HQ in Blagdon where the famous yogurt is made!

I have had 2 sets of injuries which Donna of Blue Sky has helped me with. In each case the results have been excellent and Donna herself has proved to be a very professional and caring therapist. I would recommend her without reservation.
