In May 2001, the doors to JW Physiotherapy & Sports Injury clinics opened at 27 High Street in South Queensferry. However, our story started a wee bit before this time with founder Jean Winning initially operating out of her home and a room in Murrayfield. The business grew quickly, bigger premises were needed and after a major refit of the building, the clinic became resident on the High Street.
Since 2010 Fiona and Karen have been at the helm, and they have now realised their dream of expanding, recently moving into extended premises in South Queensferry. The satellite clinic now in South Gyle and the provision of home visits continue to be integral elements in our service, taking our skills out to a wider community. We continue to maintain the philosophy of offering a multidisciplinary, holistic range of therapies alongside the physiotherapy service. This means that the local community and beyond can access good quality care for body, mind and soul.
In August 2021 we took the big step of changing our name and rebranding, becoming Forth Physio. Changing a name is never easy, especially as we were always proud to trade under the JW Physiotherapy brand and everything it stands for in our local community. This change in name and look does not mean a change in the high level of healthcare delivered, and we look forward to seeing where the next 20 years will take Forth Physio.
