The Physiotherapy Clinic
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, fitness testing, aquatic therapy and a human performance laboratory.
We are AXA PPP, 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. For any NHS enquiries please refer to the Garthdee Medical Group.
Your initial appointment will involve a thorough assessment 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 visits 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.
Musculoskeletal physiotherapy treats conditions which affect the muscles, bones, joints and soft tissues such as: back & neck pain, whiplash, ligament sprains, muscle/tendon strains, cartilage tears, pre-/post-surgery and fracture rehabilitation and sports injuries.
Neurological physiotherapy involves the treatment of movement and functional problems due to injury or disease to the neurological system such as stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s and cerebral palsy.
Physiotherapy for these conditions aims to maintain, restore, and improve function where possible.
Biomechanical assessment involves the examination of the structure, alignment, strengths and weaknesses of the body and how these may affect your pain. This can be done through 2D or 3D Gait Analysis and functional movement screening.
Sports & Remedial Massage
Sports massage is a deep tissue massage which aims to help prevent injury and prepare the body for activity. It addresses any specific knots or areas of tension that may be problematic.
