Our team of highly experienced Chartered Physiotherapists offer a comprehensive range of therapies, evidence-based treatments and advice to help reduce symptoms and minimise disruption to your everyday life. Open to the public, RGU students and staff

About Us

At our professional Physiotherapy Clinic you’ll benefit from a prompt flexible service which includes a professional assessment and diagnosis followed by a tailor made rehabilitation programme suited to your individual needs. 

Our ethos is twofold, firstly to provide a professional end-to-end service where we will work with you every step of the way during recovery, and secondly to create an individualised treatment programme to provide you the tools to help you help yourself. If necessary we’re also happy to liaise with your General Practitioner for onward referral to relevant specialist and diagnostic services such as MRI and Ultrasound scans.

We are a private clinic, staffed by a team of highly qualified physiotherapists with extensive experience in sport, work and musculoskeletal injury management. Conveniently located within the University’s Sir Ian Wood Building at Garthdee, the Clinic is supported by a range of other services including biomechanical assessment, gait analysis, aquatic therapy and a human performance laboratory.

We are BUPA, CIGNA and AVIVA registered practitioners. Please check with your insurance company if your treatment will be covered prior to booking an appointment with us. If using health insurance we recommend checking the conditions of your policy prior to attending as you may have to pay excess directly to The Physiotherapy Clinic, details will be noted on your policy. 
For any NHS enquiries please refer to the  Garthdee Medical Group.



Your initial appointment will involve a thorough assessment, whether in person or virtually, to identify your problem followed by the development of a tailor made rehabilitation programme developed with your individual needs in mind. This ensures that you receive the appropriate treatment and rehabilitation.

Your subsequent appointments will focus on a holistic approach to treatment and rehabilitation, helping you to help yourself.

If necessary, we can arrange to carry out a home visit. To discuss a home visit, please contact the clinic directly.
