Who do we treat?

We treat active people over the age of 40 who want to get back to the sport or activity they love.  We treat a lot of runners, golfers and people who attend gym classes.  We understand your pain can be frustrating, and you may be worried that it is more serious as it hasn’t gone away after a few weeks of rest.  You may have been to the doctor but rest and pain relief (which you don’t like taking) doesn’t help.   Your not sure what to do next, and that’s where we come in. We help people in our Clarkston Clinic who live locally or near Newton Mearns and Giffnock who are serious about getting back to activity. If you are not ready to commit to rehab then it’s unlikely we can help you.  

How do people choose Optimal Physio?

Their are lots of physio clinics around Clarkston, Giffnock and Newton Mearns, but how do you choose one that is right for you?  We understand how you are feeling, how it impacts on your life and we can explain why it’s not been getting better on its own.  We take the time to explain this and create a tailored plan that is proven to work.  Don’t take our word for it though, check out our success stories page.

We understand your injury

Our aim is to improve your health by showing you how to:

  • Rehab your injury without taking pain relief
  • Stop worrying about making it worse and show you how to avoid surgery
  • Get back to your activities and prevent this injury from returning again in the future

We are passionate about healthy living and getting people active, keeping their independence, and helping them get back to following their passion and doing the sport and activities they love with the people they love without medication or the need for surgery.

We understand the frustration of being injured, or in pain and how that niggle/injury impacts on your quality of life by making you worried and fearful about different activities. It’s not knowing what is safe and where to start.  You are worried about making it worse and we understand.  We make it simple for you to get back doing what you enjoy.

Nutrition and Injury Rehab in Clarkston

We understand that injuries require fuel to accelerate their recovery. Steven’s background in Sport Science has shaped how our clients can accelerate their rehab through a better understanding of their nutritional demands for their lifestyle and their injury.  Nutritional analysis alongside body composition reports allows us to help accelerate your recovery.
