Frank Gilroy Physiotherapy Glasgow

I am a chartered physiotherapist practising in Glasgow and I am available for appointments either at my clinic in Cardonald or at Hampden Physiotherapy Clinic where I see patients with or without health insurance.

I am registered with AXA, BUPA, AVIVA and all major insurance companies as a provider.

I strongly believe that patients attending for physiotherapy should take responsibility for their own health, and my aim is to help them to achieve their maximum potential following injury or surgery.  I have a particular interest in helping patients to avoid surgery for as long as possible, through simple exercises and advice.  I also specialise in preparing patients if they require hip or knee joint replacement and I provide a comprehensive aftercare plan so that they make as full a recovery as possible.

I have very close links with a number of surgeons at the Spire in Edinburgh and Rosshall Hospital in Glasgow and also many physiotherapy clinics throughout Scotland I will happily recommend another physiotherapist if it is more suitable for you from a clinical or location perspective.


Career and Experience

I have had a long and varied career which has provided me with a wealth of experience. 

Upon graduating from Glasgow University in 1985, I spent 27 years working as a physiotherapist within the NHS and gained a wide range of experience within several clinical areas including:

  • Orthopaedics
  • A&E
  • Paediatrics


I have also had the opportunity to work extensively with a number of sporting organisations including:

  • the Scottish Football Association
  • the Scottish Rugby Union
  • the Professional Jockeys Association
  • Celtic Football Club


In addition to my clinical work, I am currently a visiting physiotherapy lecturer at Glasgow Caledonian University and I have written numerous physiotherapy post-op exercise protocols for use after surgery - these protocols are available to download from this website.  I also work very closely with many of the orthopaedic specialists in Glasgow and Edinburgh and I am an advisor to the Glasgow Sports Surgery Service (GSSS).
