Callander Physiotherapy is run by Chartered Physiotherapist, Mairi Menzies. Mairi has over 30 years of experience in Physiotherapy both in the NHS and in Private Practice. She developed an interest in outdoor sports injuries early in her career and worked part time at Inverclyde National Sports Training Centre while running practices in Greenock and Fairlie. A move to Callander 19 years ago, led to the opening of Callander Physiotherapy where she has had the pleasure of developing a busy practice to meet the needs of an active population. She is trained in Acupuncture and Pilates and uses these to compliment her other physiotherapy skills. When not working, she enjoys hill walking, ski touring, running and a bit of painting.
