Bramhall Physio was established in 2013 by physiotherapist and practice owner Alison Sloan. The practice has now grown to employ 3 other physiotherapists, all of whom have more than 10 years’ experience of working within the NHS and in a private practice. Alongside their extensive experience, they are also registered with the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

At Bramhall Physio, we specialise in treating a wide range of musculoskeletal problems, ranging from sporting injuries and post operative rehabilitation, to chronic longstanding conditions. Our physios have more than 40 years combined experience, and use their extensive skills and knowledge to deliver individual solutions for your problem.
