Our Chartered Physiotherapy Team

We understand that it is important for you to know that you will be treated by a fully competent medical practitioner whenever you seek medical help. That is why ALL of the Physiotherapists at Rugby Physiotherapy are fully qualified, Chartered Physiotherapists and are Registered with the Health Professions Council. This means that they have studied physiotherapy for 3 years or more and have passed State examinations to practice Physiotherapy in the UK. To find out more about the importance of Health Professions Council, consult our FAQ section.

All of our Physiotherapists have worked for (or continue to work for) the NHS and they have passed a rigorous interview process to be selected to work for Rugby Physiotherapy. This ensures that we recruit the very best practitioners to treat our patients.

Many of our Physiotherapists have 15 years or more "hands on" experience giving them the necessary "know how" to bring you to a full recovery as quickly as possible. They are committed to Continuous Professional Development ensuring that they are updated with all of the latest treatment techniques.
