Who we are

  • Scott MacAulay

    Physiotherapist and Sports Massage Therapist

    The owner of ‘Glasgow City Physiotherapy’ Scott has worked privately since 2013 and in this time treated some of Scotland’s best athletes in the process. After graduating university Scott’s accolades resulted him being invited to attend a two-month internship at an elite training camp in Ethiopia. Working alongside some of the greatest runners of our time world, Scott was mentored by the world-renowned physiotherapist Jeroen Deen – physio to all-time greats such as David Rudisha, Genzebe Dibaba, Wilson Kipsang, Mohamad Aman.

    Alongside the clinic, Scott worked for Celtic FC as an Academy Physiotherapist for four years. While working with age groups from 8 to 17 years old, he learnt from very experienced physiotherapists and saw multiple players progress to make their senior debuts at the club.

    Within Glasgow City Physiotherapy Scott has worked with a number of international athletes who represent Scotland and GB at major junior and senior championships within athletics and as well as a host of other sports.

    “By providing exercise advice, lifestyle changes, manual therapy, and strength and conditioning advice or programmes we have helped get many athletes back into their sport and become good friends along the way.”

    It is Scott’s belief that by giving as much support to patients as possible, he can empower them to take control of their own symptoms and problems. He feels that it is vitally important to provide patients with education on how their body moves, feels pain and functions. This approach allows patients to learn how to prevent and identify future injuries in the clinic, on the track and at home.

    Scott’s ethos is that by creating the ideal environment for patients through working with event specific coaches, strength and conditioning coaches, psychologists, nutritionists and others, we can get faster and longer lasting results. Scott will work in such a way that if manual therapy is required then it can be given, but always with a long-term view of the patient’s care. More emphasis will be place on strength and conditioning or ‘exercise therapy’. Patients will always be given honest advice and exercises to work and build upon in order to improve and recover.

    Another of Scott’s professional aims is to improve private physiotherapy care in Glasgow by taking on students, physiotherapists and in the future providing opportunities to therapists to work in the clinic alongside him.
