Default Can anyone recommend a good physiotherapist?

After breaking my ankle only a couple of days before I was due to fly back to Dubai last month I have been subjected to NHS treatment. (Next time I go back to the UK I am taking travel insurance out!).

NHS physio was not available for a week after the cast was taken off so I sought a private physio in Newcastle instead who has done wonders so far but am not exactly doing the hop skip and jump yet!

I would appreciate any recommendations for a physio in Dubai. I get back on Friday and would like to find someone as soon as possible. Cost isn't really an issue as I should be able to claim back the cost from work, but location would be so I would prefer not to have to go over Garhoud bridge.


Cheers!

there is a guy callled Paul - TOP Physiotherapy I think is the name of his place. I don't have a telephone number but he is in the Pan Emirates Building on SZR, the one next to where the Oasis Centre used to be.

Thanks for the info BC - have found a contact no for TOP Physio.

Conf - Drs Nicholas & ASP are dentists As I have a fear of dentists was the intention for me to instinctively run away and therefore be cured?

I highly recommend Dubai Physio Clinic on Al Wasl Rd near Emirates Bank. I went to see Rosemary and she's excellent. Don't have the tel. no. on me but you could easily 181 it.
