Your Physio Coach evolved and has been developed to meet the increasing demands and skills needed as you progress through the MSK Physiotherapy Profession.
There are many formal training pathways providing certificated learning but fewer options to plug smaller gaps in your own personal development and clinical and academic skills. Our coaches want to share their knowledge and expertise with Physiotherapists within the UK and Overseas and set bespoke session with our clients to fill these training needs and gaps.
Our coaches are dedicated to our Physiotherapy Profession with a drive to continue the individual development needs of the future generations of MSK Physiotherapists. The outcome will allow delivery of better patient care and clinical outcomes and more confident MSK Physiotherapists.
