Planet Physio is a multinational, intercontinental medical service founded by like-minded health professionals. The aim of Planet Physio is to provide a more holistic one-stop approach to the management of pain and injuries. Professionals at Planet Physio all specialise in their own areas of expertise, thus ensuring that every centre is provided with a multitude of specialist clinics.

Planet Physio plays a huge role on education for both staff and students that attend the clinics for a high quality education and work experience.

Education and Training in Physiotherapy is provided:

  • To pyshiotherapy patients to allow them to manage their own complaints
  • To individuals (professionals or not) involved in the care of any person that would benefit from physiotherapy
  • In the promotion of research and circulation of results to the public

Planet Physio has been growing rapidly over the last few years. Expert staff value student education and professionalism as they believe that engaging with a range of teaching and learning skills is paramount to enriching the students’ experience, thus ensuring that physiotherapy students graduate not only as qualified clinicians but also with lifelong skills that are passed on to others.

Planet Physio is associated with two outstanding European Colleges that send their physiotherapy students to practice their studies in one of Planet Physio’s centres. These are:

  • European School of Physiotherapy Hogeschool Van Amsterdam (Holland)
  • Hochschule Fresenius – Idstein (Germany)

These collaborations allow students to experience different approaches to the same problems. The same concepts are shared with the two colleges – the management has to be very hands on, dynamic and communication with the patient is fundamental.

Saint James Planet Physio Clinic at Janzour Centre

The Janzour Centre, opened in June 2012, is the latest addition to the Saint James Planet Physio Clinic. The philosophy behind this branch is simple – the best possible management of your injuries anywhere in Libya. Highly qualified physiotherapists and specific treatments which are offered at the branch like Laser therapy, Shockwave therapy, Vacuum massage therapy and many more, grant the clinic to give the patient an outstanding service.

A strong relationship is formed with the physiotherapist and the client to ensure that the client is receiving the best treatment. Planet Physio at Janzour Centre prides itself on helping even the toughest of cases. In fact, a number of referrals have been received by the clinic from people who have not had any progress with other treatments.

The approach at the Janzour Centre involves you, the client, taking an active role in your rehabilitation. You learn specific exercises such as how to regain normal function and how to incorporate this into your daily routine. Undoubtedly, manual therapy, ultrasound, electrotherapy, shockwave, and laser are used to help things along whenever needed.

You can even request an extended consultation if you require treatment for more than one area, have a complex musculoskeletal history, or would naturally like more time with your phsyiotherapist.

  • Ultrasound Therapy
  • Tens
