How Can Physiotherapy Help You?
Physiotherapy combines manual therapy with postural correction, exercise therapy, education and advice in order to provide the best possible prevention and recovery from injuries, disabilities, imbalances and musculoskeletal issues.
Physiotherapists are experts in movement and functioning of the body, and work with you to help overcome any movement disorders you currently have – whether it resulted from an accident/illness, ageing, lifestyle or from birth.
Our Edinburgh physiotherapists Anna and Patrick are caring, understanding and really want to help improve your condition. Our Physio’s are members of both HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) and CSP (Chartered Society of Physiotherapy). Specialising in various musculoskeletal conditions, we can help you with a range of ailments including:

- Post-operative rehabilitation (shoulders, knees. Hips, ankles)
- Arthritis and degenerative conditions
- Repetitive strain injuries (tennis/golfers elbow)

The first step will involve an in-depth assessment and diagnosis, followed by the necessary treatment required to treat the ailment. Our Edinburgh Physiotherapy treatment includes:

And depending on your treatment course some or all of these techniques will be used to help improve your condition.
The initial assessment session is 45mins and any future follow up sessions will be 30mins. If follow-up massage treatments are part of the recommended maintenance programme, then they’ll be carried out by one of our Sports/Remedial Therapists as manual therapy is their speciality. A multi-disciplinary and holistic approach to your health will ensure we can get to the bottom of your issues and provide you with the best care possible.

If you have private health care insurance you may be entitled to claim back the cost of your treatment. Each individual insurance policy will cover different treatments, so check with your insurance provider to see if yours includes physiotherapy or sports massage. Your health insurance company may require a GP referral in order to cover the cost of your treatment at Bodyworks so just check this also. Below are some examples of providers that cover physiotherapy but always check your individual policy first and find out how to claim back the cost.
