Our physiotherapy team consists of highly skilled chartered physiotherapists with extensive experience in many settings of healthcare, from professional sport to long term problems.

If you’re looking for physiotherapy in Birmingham, read on to see what treatments and facilities our Priory & Edgbaston Physiotherapy team offer at Circle Rehabilitation.

Our physios treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions including low back pain, neck pain, sciatica, frozen shoulder, headaches and whiplash, as well as pre and post-operative orthopaedic conditions e.g. knee and hip replacements, shoulder and spinal surgery.

We cater for sports injuries, whether amateur or professional, aiming to get you back to fitness quickly with minimum fuss. Approximately 90% of all sports injuries will not need surgery which makes physiotherapy an excellent initial point of contact for diagnosis.

If further investigations are required or surgery is needed, we offer rapid access to scans such as X-Ray, MRI, ultrasound and CT, as well as direct referrals to leading orthopaedic consultants on-site.

At Circle Health Group, we don’t just treat the symptom, we use a holistic approach to assess and treat the underlying cause of your problem or injury, to help prevent issues in the future. We can offer you expert advice and evidence-based treatment to help get you moving again.
