The Fighting Physiotherapist team was founded by Yusuf Ali-Taleb. Their goal is to manage and treat your injuries to restore your mobility and strength. We can also give you the tools to reduce the risk of them in future.

Yusuf Ali-Taleb has been involved in combat sports for over 20 years. He has competed in high level Muay Thai, Kickboxing and MMA. During the journey, he’s seen and experienced many injuries himself. After graduating in Physiotherapy from King’s College London and starting work in the city's hospitals, that cut down drastically. Yusuf then took his injury knowledge from combat sports and his skills from treating patients to form The Fighting Physiotherapist team.

We treat people with zero ambition to compete but love the thrill of training in combat sports. And we've been in the fight camps of multiple world champions to manage and help heal injuries.

We know how to get fighters fitter, faster and stronger. We can help build (or rebuild) you a combat-ready body to get you success in the ring or cage.

The Fighting Physiotherapist also welcomes gym-goers of any level and athletes of other sports, not just combatants. Tap into your hidden potential and become the best version of yourself. 

We will keep you moving and see that your rehabilitation is effective and stress-free. We are about performance and know how to offer the highest standards of treatment and care.

I can't recommend Yusuf enough. Over the past year I have been training Muay-Thai and experienced consistent problems with both knees (Meniscus injury). Yusuf was both approachable and professional and gave a really clear assessment and treatment plan. He explained everything clearly so I fully understood my injury and how the treatment would help.
