the team

We only employ physiotherapists who are experienced clinical practitioners and are members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and the Health Professions Council. We provide a broad range of high quality diagnostic and treatment skills for an extensive array of musculoskeletal problems, including sports and work related injuries. All chartered physiotherapists are governed by strict rules and a professional code of conduct. Perhaps most importantly for our patients, all members of the Brighton & Hove Physios & Agility Clinics team regularly attend postgraduate courses in order to introduce new and up-to-date treatment techniques to our patients. We have a small, yet selective team of practitioners with a set of common goals:

It's about you, not us!

We want you symptom free! If we can't achieve this we will put you in the hands of someone who can, e.g. an orthopaedic surgeon.

We will get grumpy (with ourselves) if you come back with the same symptoms

We promise, simply, to get you much better.
