Altius was established in 2016 by Doug Jones, a physiotherapist with more than 17 years working for Sale Sharks, London Wasps, England rugby and in private practice. The inspiration behind Altius came when Doug was diagnosed with a brain tumour, and the experience and support that he received on his road to recovery following surgery. At Altius we have one have one key aim: to provide every person we treat with the same high level of care that an elite athlete enjoys, helping them to achieve their goals, to live and work better, climb higher and achieve more.

Our Simple Approach

  • 01


    We start our process when a patient is in pain or post-injury, and using our extensive experience diagnose the problem and decide on the best treatment plan with the patient.

  • 02


    We treat the cause not the symptoms, and believe in addressing all the factors that are contributing to an injury in order to understand, manage and maintain health and fitness.

  • 03


    We educate individuals on how best to exercise and support them through a personalised rehabilitation process, making specific measurements to chart progress and achieve targeted goals.
