In 2015, Declan Foley launched Jigsaw Physiotherapy.
The ethos of our company is based around knowledge and education. It’s our belief that the key to managing injuries, is a detailed understanding of the structures affected, and how these will influence your movement and function.
By educating you about the injury, we can guide you on your journey back to full health, ensuring that you are back up and running in no time!
Jigsaw Physiotherapy is proud to work with local sports clubs such as Wimborne and Dorset & Wilts RFC’s, alongside International athletes in golf, volleyball, weightlifting and motorsports.
Alongside sports injuries, our clinics treat all spinal and peripheral joint and soft tissue injuries that you may suffer with as a result of accidents, work or day to day life.
At Jigsaw Physiotherapy, we strive to offer you a range of options depending on your goals. We aim to deliver a tailored treatment which not only solves an injury you have but also to educate and provide knowledge which will help to prevent re-occurrences or new injuries.
Our physiotherapists are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and are also members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists.
