About Us

Welcome to Urban Body – An Award-Winning Physiotherapy Clinic based in Solihull.

We are passionate about helping people aged 50+ to stay healthy, mobile and active, live FREE from painkillers, whilst allowing them to return to doing the things they love.


We believe that everyone deserves to live their best life, free from pain and physical limitations. We want to help you stay active and maintain independence and mobility. 

How we do this is important to us. We don’t believe in painkillers as a long term solution and take pride in our holistic approach to physiotherapy, which focuses on treating the root cause of your condition, not just the symptoms.

We take the time to listen to your concerns, assess your unique needs, and create a personalised treatment plan tailored to your individual goals. 

Our promise to you is you will leave our clinic knowing exactly what is wrong, how long it will take to fix and exactly what must be done to get you to your goal.


Hi I’m Phil, 

Physiotherapist and owner of Urban Body.  

I started Urban Body because I have personally experienced how a physiotherapist can change people’s lives, and I was inspired to do the same for others.

Urban Body’s story started with humble beginnings from the front room of my parents home, treating friends and family. 

Portrait of Phil, Owner & Physiotherapist of Urban Body

With the knowledge gained through my degree, and experience I gained working at Loughborough University treating elite athletes, coupled with my passion to help others – my vision for the business was simple;

To bring my knowledge and experience of treating elite athletes into a private practice, and to allow others the opportunity to receive the same standard of care. The aim is to provide a world class service and experience specialising in keeping people in their 50s and beyond stay healthy, mobile, active and  living FREE from painkillers.

Over the last 5 years, I have great pride in saying, Urban Body has grown to include an exceptional group of therapists along with a wonderful administrative team, who share my passion, within an outstanding clinic environment.

“If I may say so myself, our Urban Body therapists are ‘Amazing’!! They don’t wear capes but often get called ‘Superheroes’ by our patients.” 

I pick my team very carefully, not only do they have to be the best at what they do, but also share the same ethos of wanting to go the extra mile for our patients, being warm and friendly and taking great pride in helping patients get back to living a pain free, fulfilling life and returning to the things they love.

“They are a genuinely caring outfit – all such lovely down to earth people. My husband and I have both been to Urban Body and I really cannot praise them enough. They have sorted us both out with our shoulder and sciatica problems. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The service and expertise they offer is excellent. Love the fact that they genuinely want to help.”

Our Approach

You talk. We listen

At your initial assessment at our clinic in Solihull, our skilled physiotherapists will always make it a priority to listen to you to understand how you are suffering and what you would like to achieve

Understand the root cause of your pain

We will always seek to understand the root cause of the problem and not just treat the symptoms. We don’t believe in temporary fixes here, our whole ethos is about providing you with a long term solution.

Tailored to you

Our approach is always tailored to you. We will put together a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs and goals and work with you to help you reach your goals, enabling you to get back to doing the things you love.

The whole experience of visiting Urban Body was fantastic. From the warm friendly welcome every time I visit for treatments. Everybody always asks me how I am and I get the impression everyone you come in contact with really cares. I’ve seen other physios before but never had this experience

Common Physiotherapy Questions

It’s essential to wear comfortable clothing that allows easy movement and access to the area of your body that requires treatment. Loose-fitting athletic wear, such as shorts, T-shirts, and leggings, is often a good choice. Please feel free to discuss any clothing concerns with your physiotherapist during your initial consultation.

You do not need a doctor’s referral to see one of our therapists.
