What do we treat?

Well if it moves and it’s painful we probably treat it! We are all musculoskeletal pain specialists and although most of the conditions we see are back pain, neck pain or sports related injuries, we also commonly see over-use injuries, work related conditions and people following surgery. If you are unsure if we can help, simply give us a call and we will be able to clarify if it is worth coming to see us, or whether you need pointed in another direction.

Physis now has 7 clinics in total. Five clinics in Edinburgh and 2 in towns near Edinburgh (Livingston, & Linlithgow). See our map below for our exact locations.

Pilates

Pilates

Pilates at physis is about having fun and feeling good! Pilates is a form of low intensity exercise which uses individual controlled movements to challenge your muscular system, which in turn will help you to feel stronger and suppler. This can be beneficial in your rehab, but can also help in keeping you pain free. Pilates is unfortunately not offered across all our sites.

Back Pain

Back Pain

Back pain can feel life changing, but it doesn't have to be.

The vast majority of people will experience a significant bout of low back pain in their lifetime. Whilst we acknowledge the severity of the pain and the impact it can have on your life during this time, at Physis we know that with proper management and advice - the chances of you making a full recovery are extremely high.
We work hard to follow high quality evidence, avoid fads and trends, and not to perpetuate myths, which are often the reason people end up with longstanding or recurrent pain problems.

Neck Pain

It might feel like a complete 'pain in the neck', but it doesn't have to get you down!

Most of us will experience a significant episode of neck pain. This can be a frightening and waring experience. We understand this. We know there are multiple factors that can contribute to the cause of your neck pain. We’ll identify these and provide solutions. So again, your outlook is very good, and with the right advice and management your chances of returning to your normal life are extremely high.

Sports & activity related injuries

Sport, Dancing, Walking, Gardening: Getting you back to achieving your goals!

Activity is good for us! All of us! We know you want to get back to doing what you love as quickly as you can. Activity related injuries can affect everyone from the absolute beginner to the elite athlete. We know, because we treat them all! We understand a champion’s drive to get back to the winning spot. We understand the frustration caused by recurrent injuries, or the disappointment of making the change to start exercising, only to fall at the first hurdle. Whatever your level of activity or your aspiration, we have the skills to get you back to where you want to be. And better.

Other injuries and conditions

From head to toe, we will know what to do!

Generally, pain is what brings people to us, whether it’s arthritis, a simple sprain or a headache. Pain affects all areas of the body, and sometimes there seems to be no reason for it! But there will be! And the challenge for us is to figure out what is causing it, and then provide you with the appropriate treatment, management and advice.
As experts in musculoskeletal health, we see a broad range of work related injuries, medicolegal cases, post-surgical cases as well as general mobility problems where pain may not be the main issue. If you are unsure whether we can help, please give us a call and we can chat about your options.

Great excuse to bring my dog to work. Unfortunately if Covid doesn’t smell like a ball he won’t be much good.

For private treatments

If you’re paying for physiotherapy yourself, then you don’t need a GP referral to make an appointment. You’ll find our prices are competitive with other equally-qualified, private physiotherapy clinics. We can also offer discounted rates to members of sports clubs and corporate sports and health schemes; so if you’re the organiser or a member of one, please email us for more details: admin@physis.uk.com or call us on 0131 478 4646 and we’ll be happy to help. To receive the discounted rate, cardholders just need to let us know which kind of card they have, when they make their appointment, and to bring the card with them when they come for their treatment.

For treatments covered by health insurance

We’re registered with all the major health insurance companies (please see the list below) which simply means that we can bill them directly for your treatment if you’re covered. Each individual insurance policy covers different treatments, so check with your insurer to see if yours includes physiotherapy. Your health insurance company may require a GP referral in order to pay for our treatment. Please note that it is your responsibility to contact your insurer to find out what is required - you may also need to obtain a claim no. prior to your initial treatment. All that we ask is that you give us the necessary details to bill on your behalf.

Insurance companies we’re registered with include: BUPA, Aviva, AXA PPP, Vitality Health, Simply Health, Nuffield, Allianz, Standard Life, Royal Sun & Alliance/First Assist, Remedi, Cigna, Medisure, and Western Provident Association. Please note that this is an ever-expanding list so check with us if your insurance company is not here (there's a good chance that we're already registered with them or can arrange to do so). 

Insurance companies fees vary and can be different to those listed above due to administration charges.
