Functional fitness MOT for seniors over 60

The functional MOT for ageing people, carried out by a physiotherapist, is a personal screening of physical abilities to identify problems and weaknesses which may have an impact on daily life and physical or sports activities.

We recommend a functional MOT to everyone getting older who needs professional help, would like to be proactive to prevent later problems and maximise their independence and fitness.

Osteoporosis and bone health programme

Build stronger bones, reduce the risk of fractures and build confidence with Physio for All’s Osteoporosis Management Programme.

After the age of 35, we all lose more bone than we form new. Bone loss increases gradually as part of the ageing process. Both women and men are at risk of osteoporosis, and in women bone loss occurs fastest in the first few years after menopause.

Osteoporosis is a silent disease. If you are not sure if you are at risk of breaking bone?  Try the online fracture risk assessment tool FRAX.

What our patients say

  • Comparing my recovery to unfortunate friends who had a similar ACL and MCL skiing injury, I have had far smoother and faster results , which I believe is fully attributable to the regular, motivational and professional treatment from Physio For Al. Thank you so much!

    George
  • I had some physio sessions both for post-natal perineal rehab after my second child and during my pregnancy when expecting my third child to relief me from back. With each session I felt better. Christine is a lovely practitioner who knows the woman body inside out, truly cares and is the expert. I would 100% recommend her and her practice for any pregnancy post-natal treatment.

    Anon
  • I’ve been using Physio For All for 17 years, prior to that I’d never used physio. It sorted out issues I’d had for 30 years. All the therapists have been outstanding. I recommend you all the time! Thank you for your excellent and caring service.

    Anon
  • My Physio has been excellent working with me through a long rehab post-surgery. I am now able to participate in sports at the same level as before injury. This is far surpassing even my own expectations I wholeheartedly recommend Physio For All to anyone who wishes to be able to return to full, normal activity following injury.

    G.
  • I had incontinence issues after given birth due to a very weak pelvic floor. Things I could not do anymore including running and I thought that would be the case for the rest of my life. After a couple of months of treatment things have now dramatically improved. Thanks a lot Christine for all your help!

  • I came to the physio to deal with an incredibly sore Achilles that has severely hampered my ability to exercise. After several sessions with Francois I am back to cycling again – running to be taken up again soon too – and pain free. The clinic staff are also lovely and the opening hours are super convenient.

    Sara
  • I came to Physio For All as I had been here in the past for plantar fasciitis. I would recommend them to a friend as they are very helpful, calm and have your best interest at heart. I felt very happy with my PT session and more relaxed than I was anticipating. The PT was friendly, empathetic and kind, Plus, the price is very good for this service.

    Anon
  • I have had ongoing back, shoulder and neck pain. My treatment at Physio For All has taught me exercises to strengthen my muscles and relieve pain and I have felt a huge improvement. I think the staff are excellent, experienced, sympathetic and extremely helpful. I have recommended Physio for All to many friends. I now come regularly for a massage to help prevent the build-up of tension.

    Charlotte
  • I have always had a tight back and was having regular sessions, but when I had my broken ankle accident through tennis, that’s when Jose at Physio for All became vital to me! I would not have got through the past 3 years without my regular sessions with him! Now I have also had a knee operation, again through tennis, I am in safe hands getting back to the level where I can start tennis again
