Physiotherapy

Based on site at UCS active, Physio Fitness work alongside resident personal trainers, pilates and swimming instructors to plan a tailored rehabilitation programme to suit each patient's needs.

Treating sports injuries, back and neck problems, post orthopaedic surgery, fractures and many other conditions, our physiotherapists plan and manage the most effective programme for a safe, fast recovery. 

Often our physiotherapists work in the gym, to ensure that patients are clear on which exercises they should be doing independently. Many patients need this one to one instruction to correct their technique, but also to monitor progress with treatment.

Physio Fitness Opening Hours:  8am to 8.30pm daily and on Saturdays from 9-2pm for physiotherapy. The rest of the weekend is for our sports massage service.

To book a consultation please call 020 7183 4436 or email.
