Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession providing treatment for human function and movement. It is the treatment of physical conditions aimed at promoting, maintaining and restoring physical well-being. Physiotherapy is based on sound scientific knowledge and our Physiotherapists are committed to evaluating and reviewing the evidence underlying the practice and delivery of the treatment.

Our goal is to increase the functional ability of our patients and prevent the recurrence of injury. The Clinic specialises in sports medicine, musculoskeletal disorders, post-operative and injury rehabilitation, back and neck injuries, manipulation and manual therapy techniques, muscle balancing and hands on Physiotherapy treatment. We provide a high standard of service and each patient is thoroughly assessed and advised of an individual treatment plan according to their particular problem.

Many of our Physiotherapists have been involved in high levels of sporting events and specialise in sports related injuries. They have years of experience supporting sporting events within Dubai and overseas, such as Rugby 7’s, Australian Rules Football, Tennis and Football 7’s, to name a few. Many members of the Team are also sports enthusiasts and participate in sports such as rugby, marathons, golf, triathlons, cycling, dragon boating, diving, sailing, yoga and skiing, providing them with a deep understanding of sporting injuries and the path to recovery.
