Pablo Jordá Rodrigo
Pablo Jordá Rodrigo
Physiotherapist & Osteopath

Pablo hails from Spain and is an incredible therapist. He has a degree in Physiotherapy and also Osteopathy. He is currently finishing his masters in Chinese Medicine.
Before joining the team Pablo worked with Scottish football including Hearts Football Club.
Main area of expertise
Spinal manipulation and visceral manipulation. The ‘viscera’ is the collective name of our internal organs, they can influence spinal pain and general well-being and Pablo has a unique approach to this fascinating area.
As you would expect, having worked at Professional Football, Pablo is also very good at sports injuries
Stuart on Pablo
You can tell when you watch Pablo treating patients that he is an expert in manipulation. He personally treated my ‘viscera’ – my liver had a blockage apparently and with a few unusual maneuvers I felt a strange release sensation on my right side (if felt like a sucking sensation). I was then energised for the rest of the day – interestingly Pablo didn’t lay a finger on my back but my lower back felt hot, like there was a hot water bottle on it. All very strange but wonderful. I knew then that we had someone special on our team. Pablo claims to be Spanish but he looks more Scottish than Spanish.
