Industry leading medical technology
At Physio Fitness we are always appraising the best medical approaches for given conditions, this philosophy has helped keep us constantly working with innovative technology to gain better outcomes for our patients. From being one of only six clinics in the UK to begin treating with the groundbreaking MBST technology, to utilising the latest cryotherapy advances. Clients on the intensity programmes will have access to the full range of treatments available at the clinic.
Treatment without limitations
One of the key concepts of the intensity programme is the complete individualised approach to treatment sessions. At initial consultation your treatment plan will be laid out for you detailing what we feel is the best approach for your injury. That could be daily treatment or a combination of multiple physiotherapy sessions a week alongside Alter G Treadmill or MBST therapy sessions.
This approach stems from our work in elite sports, when you are working with an injured athlete you utilise every possible treatment approach to ensure the quickest return to full health. This is exactly what the Intensity package offers, giving you the best treatment available with no limitations.

Frequently asked questions
How is intensity different from buying a block of physiotherapy sessions?
Intensity is physiotherapy without limitations. Meaning in the agreed timescale (3 months, 6 months, 12 months) you recieve the best possible treatments for you. As many sessions as we deem necessary and whichever treatment approaches we feel are best suited.
I have private medical insurance will that cover an intensity program?
Unfortunately not, as this is a structured intense program private medical insurance does not cover the extent of the program.
What is the cost?
Price is detirmened on an individual basis depending on the requirements of your injury and length of rehabilitation program. This will be discussed at your initial appointment, if we don't feel the intensity program is right for you we will recommend alternative options.
