Edinburgh Sports + Spinal Physiotherapy
Our treatment approach is tailored to each individual as conditions and recovery times are different for every patient. We will always try to keep things simple and provide uncomplicated explanations to ensure that there are no unnecessary confusion as we wish to alleviate any fears you may have about your condition. We strongly believe that good communication between patient and therapist is vital to achieve the most effective results.
What to Expect
During your consultation we will take a thorough case history of your symptoms and other medical issues. Following this we will complete a physical examination. Once an impression has been reached about your condition, you will be given an explanation and a treatment plan.
If further tests are deemed necessary such as X-rays or perhaps an MRI scan, this can be arranged via our referral process to local private hospitals.

Richard is a top physio and knows exactly what he is speaking about! He was specific with information and able to identify my injury and gave me rest time and appropriate recovery exercises to get me playing rugby again asap! Would highly recommend him to anyone having problems! Mark

We worked together to put a detailed return to running plan specific to the hamstring graft that was taken during surgery. I would definitely recommend this clinic and Richard”.

After an initial assessment he will then organise a detailed treatment plan. I would highly recommend anyone with back pain to see him”.
