about project: physio
Your Health. Your Wellness. Your Performance
These things are unique to you and caring for them no matter what they encapsulate is our joint project.
Everyone has a story to tell.
You may be looking to get answers to your niggling back or hip, you may be recovering from surgery, you may even be preparing for your first or fiftieth 10k or bike race.
Together we can plan, devise and monitor your progress from your home, gym, or office with our cutting-edge project: Virtual clinic and rehabilitation service.
Our project: In-Clinic appointments take place in our Edinburgh city centre based clinic. This leading treatment and rehabilitation space contains a full gym suite alongside cutting-edge assessment technology unique to Scotland.
Our decades of experience in healthcare, including the NHS and Private Practice, have seen us treat, and rehabilitate, thousands of patients of all ages and levels of ability. We are proud to serve and assist all members of the community.
Having worked closely with orthopaedic surgeons in private practice and professional sports we are highly experienced in the rehabilitation of post-surgical patients. Using our cutting-edge testing equipment we are able to offer unique rehabilitation and assessment sessions via project: performance | orthopaedic appointments, which can be carried out both at home and in-clinic.
With our years of work in elite-level international sport, we are able to offer support, insight and consultation to clubs or teams around all facets of performance. Experience of this level, rarely found, now accessible via project: performance.
