Why are we injured or in pain?

Healthy muscles make up an essential part of the body structure yet most of us tend to neglect them allowing them to fail into disrepair and abuse, either by inappropriate exercise, over exertion, poor posture and trauma.

Why does KC Physio work?

KC Physio achieves great success because I provide a combination of deep tissue frictions, spinal manipulation, stretch therapy and acupuncture. It is essential to draw upon all of these techniques.

Expected physical outcomes

With body manipulation your connective tissues are healthier and have more appropriate levels of tone, fluids will flow more easily, nerve impulses will be conducted more smoothly, thus helping to create a more effective motor response.


Karl Cousins is a unique multi-disciplined physiotherapist who provides a systematic, detailed approach to the treatment of each and every individual making KC Physio significantly different from the rest.

Having qualified in 1998 as a chartered physiotherapist I have accrued a wealth of knowledge and clinical experience in a multitude of specialisms whilst working within the NHS including musculoskeletal, orthopaedic, medical and neurological. This sound basis of clinical knowledge and evidence-based practice provides a broader holistic approach to the application of treatment skills within both the public and private sectors.

Karl worked his magic with help on my part of course, my arm is now 110% and stronger than it was before, I still see him to keep it and any other aches in peak condition, he is amazing and I can’t thank him enough."

"I have used KC physio for a few years now and the service has always been outstanding. I strongly recommend Karl to anyone I know who needs physio."

Ultimate Professional

"Karl is the ultimate professional. As a serious cyclist I needed to get my lower back sorted, I had restricted movement and was in constant pain.
Karl explained to me what the problem was and why I was getting the issues.
I would not go anywhere else, not only did he sort my back but also resolved the muscle tightness so I was able to resume normal activity’s again and without pain.
Karl also showed me the correct exercises and ensured I was doing them correctly. I have been to other physios, but Karl is in another league."

Paul S

Gets Results

"I had surgery on my shoulder over eight years ago. As a result I lost a lot of flexibility and was in constant pain. I had seen multiple physios over the years, none of whom had been able to help me in any meaningful way. I had come to see Karl as he had been recommended to me by a colleague. Honestly, after my previous experiences I did not hold out much hope he could help me. However, I was wrong and in only a few sessions I was a changed man. I have more flexibility and much less pain. I've also been able to restart exercises such as squatting and bench presses, things I have not been able to do since my accident. I thoroughly recommend going to see Karl, he is not like other physios and he definitely gets results!"

Dougie Y

Healing Hands

"Healing Hands with a Magic Touch. I have been under Karl’s care for over 5 years now and can honestly say he is the best in the business. He listens to your concerns and gets right to the route of the problem. Many a time I have been in pain with lower back issues and Karl uses his magic healing hands to snap me back into shape. He makes me understand what the problem is and how to make it better. An expert with acupuncture and other amazing modern techniques and tools, which really make you feel 100 times better and then when you walked in. KCPhysio makes you feel welcome, relaxed, and by the time I leave, I’m always booking for my next session. I would follow Karl wherever he goes as he knows how to take care of his clients and make them feel better. He is a modern day magician with magic hands and worth every single penny."
