The Best Clinics for Physical Therapy in Dubai

Before we get right into our list of the centers for physical therapy in Dubai, here are the criteria we considered in choosing them:

Treatments & equipment – Different physical problems call for unique approaches and tools. So we considered each center’s range of services to estimate their versatility.
Experience – We also considered how long the center and its team have been working in the region. This is important because experienced therapists have better techniques and knowledge than newer ones.
Location – A lot of people who go to physical therapy have a hard time moving around, so it’s important to consider the center’s location in the city, and how accessible it is.

Established in 1992, Dubai Physiotherapy & Family Medicine Clinic has been offering a fully comprehensive physiotherapy center to Dubai for years.

The clinic specializes in sports medicine, musculoskeletal disorders, post-operative and injury rehabilitation, and many other movement-focused treatments.

Michael, who survived a car accident last year, has been going to therapy with them for a while now. He shared with us that each patient gets a thorough assessment and an individual treatment plan to address their problems.

We love that the clinic is big enough to accommodate individualized programs rather than assigning patients a pre-made plan. 

This goes to show that that center can really apply specific techniques and treatments for the patient’s healing.

Its team of physical therapists has been involved in high levels of sporting events and has experience in sports-related injuries.

But what makes this clinic even more special is that most members are sports enthusiasts and participate in rugby, marathons, golf, triathlons, and other athletic activities.

We think that this gives the team a deep understanding of sporting injuries and the path to recovery.

However, while principles learned from injuries related to sport can be applied to other injuries and problems, they seem to lack specialization in individual chronic pain.

We think this is a problem, as many regular people nowadays do experience chronic pain in their backs and necks.

As for the clinic’s location, we love that it’s situated on the 1st floor of the Town Centre Jumeirah on Jumeirah Beach Road.

This means that not only is the place strategically located, but it is also designed to be accessible for people who have a hard time moving around. The best part is, it’s just on the 1st floor. 

All in all, while the lack of focus on individual chronic pain treatments is glaring, the clinic’s deep understanding of injuries and sports makes them a really great choice for physical therapy.

Pros

Pros

  • Clinic specializes in sports injury and post-operative therapy
  • Team members are sports enthusiasts
  • Strategically located and the venue is designed to be accessible

Cons

  • Lacks focus on chronic pain treatments

Customer Reviews

Knowledgable staff

I think it’s one of the best places for Physiotherapy. Professional team and they do their best to accommodate you. Staff is quite knowledgeable and they will work with you to the best of their ability.” —Devesh Sharma, Google Reviews

Their treatments work faster than expected

I was recommended Natasha after my ACL surgery, and I have to say that she was amazing, as a person and as a physiotherapist. I started getting my mobility back very fast thanks to her, and was back on a skateboard in no time even though I heard it would take a year (  6 months after I was almost back to normal) . I cannot thank her enough for this.” —Florian Rozzonelli, Google Reviews

Tracings its roots in the field of physiotherapy and manual treatments back to Scandinavia, Scandinavian Physiotherapy Center prides itself as one of the frontrunners in the community.

Klein, a rugby player, has been going to the clinic for years to avail of its Injury Prevention Program and Manual Therapy aimed at athletes.

He shared with us that he chose this center because it has its Sports treatments and general physiology treatments separated.

And we love this. We think that separating treatments based on their focus, allows its departments to really specialize in what they do.

The clinic is very versatile in terms of the treatments it offers. It has dry needling and biochemical analysis services for athletes, as well as trigger point treatments, craniosacral therapy, and manual lymphatic drainage for its general physiology offerings.

However, we do think that its treatments focus on the prevention of injuries and chronic pain, rather than addressing them.

And while prevention is the best solution, not everyone can afford to prevent injuries in their lives.

As for its location, this is where we struggle with it. It is located in a commercial/corporate hub, which is off the main thoroughfares of the city.

And while the place is beautifully designed and has amenities that make it more accessible, getting there won’t be possible through public transportation.

Pros

  • Follows Scandinavian techniques and principles
  • Separated sports and general treatments
  • Area has accessibility feature

Cons

  • Lacks injury-focused treatments
  • Clinic is inaccessible via public transportation

Customer Reviews

Top quality treatments

I recommend this place 100%. Given my 2 knee surgeries, I have been to A LOT of Physiotherapy centers in the UAE (as well as in the US and Germany), and I am VERY happy with the Scandinavian Center because of the top top quality and care of the Therapists. All of them generally and Mr. Felix especially, because he understands very well the multi-dimensional nature of the body dynamics and his exercises are always on point and very effective in addressing the root causes of any pain or limited mobility I had. Also the admin staff there is extremely professional and polite. Always a pleasure to deal with them!” —Ahmed Abdel-Wahab, Google Reviews

Skilled and professional team

I have had great experiences at Scandinavian Physiotherapy Center! I saw Felix, who is very knowledgeable, skilled and professional. He helped me so much with my discomfort in my neck and back! I highly recommend him!

The admin team is friendly, responsive and so helpful. All in all a great experience!!” —Lina Mansson Al Nusif, Google Reviews

Specializing in neuro-rehabilitation and pain management, Korehab offers a range of rehabilitation programs designed to restore physiological function from neurological and musculoskeletal disorders.

Na Hui-do, has been going to Korehab to recover from a stroke she suffered a year ago. She felt the most comfortable going here because of its Koren team.

She shared with us that the clinic is known for addressing the aftereffects of injuries, diseases, and disorders.

We love that it specializes in returning the patient to the highest level of functioning possible while emphasizing gait & balance improvement and accommodating unique needs.

However, it does lack treatments that prevent chronic pain and possible injuries that may occur due to the lack of mobility and flexibility.

Another great thing about this rehabilitation clinic is that all of its members have undergone multiple certifications and training — which is especially significant if they’re handling patients who went through stroke, coma, and conditions similar to these.

As for its location, Korehab Clinic is located in Healthcare City, which is designed to be very accessible and conveniently placed for emergencies and regular patients.

We love that it’s right next to the highway and that it’s surrounded by residential areas that they can cater to.

All in all, Korehab Clinic is our top pick for those looking to get back to their best selves after an injury or a sickness.

Pros

  • Specializes in neuro-rehab and pain management
  • Team has undergone multiple certifications and training
  • Located in Healthcare city

Cons

  • No treatments or preventing chronic pain

Customer Reviews

Great service and amazing treatments

Customer friendly staff and service.

Well trained physiotherapist, immediately diagnosed the issue with my neck.

Always on time.

Really helped with pain management. One of the best  physiotherapy clinics in town considering I have been to several and only liked two.” —Mamtu Mirchandani, Google Reviews

Highly recommend this clinic

I highly recommend Korehab for pain management. I suffered from chronic back issues and herniated discs for a while, and usually I would be prescribed medication to manage the pain, but the pain would remain. Korehab was recommended to me by chance…and it was the best decision I made to consider them for my pain management treatment.

The doctors and physiotherapists are experts in their field, highly dedicated, their staff are very friendly and supportive, and the facility is well organized. A special shoutout to Mihyang Park and Hyeok Lee. They oversaw my treatment, and because of them I am now pain free! They showed high levels of expertise, knew exactly which problem areas to tackle and when, and laid down a treatment plan that finally got me relief from pain. They are super personable, and I always felt like I was under excellent care. Can’t recommend them enough. Do yourself a favor and check out Korehab.” —Kavitha Kanakar, Google Reviews

With the most advanced equipment for physical therapy, Physiocare Physiotherapy Center differentiates itself by bringing technology to manual therapy.

Ahmed has been a regular patient here for a couple of years now. He comes in often to have his sports injuries addressed.

He shared with us that the clinic’s electrotherapy machine does wonders in restoring his ability to be mobile, along with the therapists’ skill in applying manual techniques.

We like that the clinic really values versatility, coupled with boosting the quality of its services by using machines.

It offers pain management programs, addresses sports injuries, specializes in orthopaedia, and even helps with pre and post-pregnancy for women.

And while we think that the clinic lacks a focus in terms of what it offers, the team has at least the knowledge and skill to back it up.

All of its physical therapists are licensed under the DHCC’s Center for Healthcare Planning and Quality (CPQ) body.

This means that every treatment that the therapists do is approved by and trained under the standardized quality for physical therapists.

And just like Korehab, Physiocare is also located in Healthcare City. But what makes it better located is that it’s right next to Wafi City Mall.

This means that patients have the privilege of going through the mall or going there for errands after.

All in all, while Physiocare lacks a certain sense of focus, its trained personnel and advanced technology ensure that whatever treatment it gives it’s going to be up to standard.

Pros

  • Provides advanced equipment
  • Wide range of treatments
  • University-trained physical therapists
  • Located in Healthcare City

Cons

  • Lack specialization and focus in treatments

Customer Reviews

I cannot recommend them highly enough

I have suffered from migraines for so long and nothing has worked, until i saw physiotherapist Siôn! If you suffer from migraines or headaches I cannot recommend him highly enough!! He is the best by far.” —Georgia P, Google Reviews

Knowledgable in the area of crossfit

I have been to Sion quite a few times for physiotherapy sessions. Constantly putting my body under strain between Crossfit and rugby. I always prefer to go to physiotherapists who are very knowledgeable in the area of strength and conditioning and Crossfit, like Sion is. Sion really understands the physical sides of my training because of his background, his rehabilitation programs have helped me hugely with my performance in all aspects of my training on and off the field.” —Niamh Kennedy, Google Reviews

Specializing in musculoskeletal and sports therapy, PhysioFit Sports & Rehab can help with acute and chronic injuries from assessment to treatment and rehab.

Crystal has been availing of its chiropractic treatments for a couple of years now. Being a bank teller, she has been struggling with lower back pain from sitting all day, but PhysioFit’s chiropractic treatment has really helped alleviate that.


She shared with us that the clinic uses a hands-on approach and evidence-based practice when giving out its treatments, ensuring that every procedure is up to standards within the community.

It has a wide range of treatments such as manual therapy (mobilization, massage, manipulation), deep dry needling, exercise programs, and many more, allowing it to accommodate all kinds of patients.

However, we think that the number of treatments it offers seriously outnumbers its two-man team. 

We can see how Dr. Shereen and Dr. Mickael may struggle from jumping from one treatment to another on a daily basis.

And while their experience is vast and their credential proves how competent and skilled they are, we think that they’re spreading themselves too thin.

As for its location, this clinic is also located in Healthcare City. This means that the area is designed to be very accessible and conveniently placed for emergencies and regular patients.

All in all, while the clinic is small, the fact that it can still offer a high number of treatments says a lot about its work ethic and skills.

Pros

  • Specializes in musculoskeletal and sports therapy
  • Offers a wide range of treatments
  • Located in Healthcare City

Cons

  • Only has 2 therapists in the clinic

Customer Reviews

I cannot recommend them highly enough

Shereen has been a life saver not only for me but for my wife, friends and clients as well. She’s very professional and knows her stuff.

I have been coming in for many years with different injuries or physical problems due to my sport/training and she’s always spot on with the treatment and solution. My most recent problem was 2 bulging discs and instead of getting a recommended injection in another clinic we did 2 sessions combined with decompression therapy recommended by her and was back on my feet within no-time.

I can 100% recommend Shereen to anyone who’s looking for a honest and knowledgeable physiotherapist combined with a good laugh during the sessions.” —Stefan Rog, Google Reviews

The exercises worked wonders

I had a shoulder injury and very stiff shoulder joint for about 10 months and I started physio with Shereen about three months ago and although I had a gap of a month and a half in the middle of sessions due to another medical condition , Shereen instructed me to do many home exercise to prevent going back pre-physio stiffness and it worked very well. I have gained more than 80% of my shoulder movements in only 6 sessions. In addition to being an excellent physiotherapist, Shreen is very supportive and caring and would recommend her for a great physiotherapy journey.” —Tahani Saleh, Google Reviews
