What our patients say

Clare and her team have been my physiotherapists weekly and latterly twice-weekly for over six years now. The whole team at Physio Ecosse have worked tirelessly to aide my long and painful recovery from a Brain Stem Stroke. Without their support, professionalism and dedication, my physical and mental recovery would never have reached the levels they have. Both friends and work colleagues of mine have subsequently used the services of Physio Eccosse following injuries and have been extremely impressed with the sheer level of care and attention they were given. In my opinion, no other Physiotherapy team come even a close second to Physio Ecosse.

Graeme M.

I have been using Clare and her team at Physio Ecosse for many years and the reason is simple: Real expertise underpinning good diagnosis followed up by clear and simple advice on the recovery journey.

On top of this is the friendly and positive welcome that always greets you.  Those of us that love sport and physical activity will always need support when injuries occur, whether through an accident or from overuse.  I get this from Physio Ecosse and always leave confident in the knowledge that I am in good hands.

Chris, Commonwealth Games 10000m Runner

I would like to thank Physio Ecosse and Steph in particular for helping me with my knee joint problems in advance of my ski-ing holiday. I especially like the way she takes time to assess the issue and then talks me through the treatment. What really made my holiday a success was Steph’s advice on building up my ski-legs and muscles. So grateful for this as it really meant the whole week went super well as a result.

I have been getting Acupuncture at Physio Ecosse for a few years now to help with my MS pain and it’s been life-changing, made a huge difference to my pain levels. Friendly, professional staff and the clinic is immaculate. Would highly recommend.

Claire M.

I am really pleased with my progress via “remote physio”. It has exceeded expectations and I feel so much better for it!

Nick - special police officer

Initially, I was sceptical of virtual physiotherapy appointments and wondered how I could benefit from them when my previous appointments were so “hands-on”. But here we are, 7 months on, and I am running more freely and with renewed motivation! Gyms and swimming pools may be closed but virtual physio is open and it works for me. It’s like magic – with hard work!

Christine - veteran triathlete

I cannot speak highly enough about Clare and her team.  As a keen (accident prone) golfer, I have had reason to seek Clare’s help for a number of different reasons over the years and I am always extremely happy with the professional and friendly way that I am treated.
