Welcome to Mike Varney Physiotherapy

Now established for over 30 years, Mike Varney Physiotherapy continues to offer a wealth of expertise and experience treating musculoskeletal problems. We offer a range of specialised treatments for the relief of symptoms from sports-related injuries and road traffic accidents to common ailments such as back pain, stress related tension and many other physical problems.

Our aim is to provide professional advice and treatment to achieve the best possible results. We take great pride in the success that we have historically had over the years with our many satisfied clients. Please rest assured that we treat our clients as individual cases with their own specific requirements and that all patient medical information is kept strictly confidential. All the team of practitioners are qualified in their respective areas. Please feel free to read through the website for more information on the conditions that we deal with and the range of treatments that we offer. If there is anything we can be of assistance with, please do not hesitate to contact us.


We offer 30 minute consultations and treatments where various modalities may be used in one treatment session. We are able to provide treatment under all major private medical healthcare policies. You do not need to be a member of Harlow Leisurezone sport centre to be treated by us, or pay an entrance fee to visit the practice. Free car parking is available on site within the sport centre car park.

What can you expect from your first visit?

A history of the injury will be taken with any relevant factors included. An examination will then follow in a private treatment room, a diagnosis will be given and a treatment plan formed. You will then be advised of the approximate number of appointments required to resolve the problem. Treatment is often started on the first visit at no extra cost.

I have been a patient at the clinic for many years with various football injuries. The results have been excellent and Mike’s knowledge of medical treatments is very impressive. He has kept me playing!–GP, Harlow

Mike Varney helped me overcome an acute back problem. My sciatica was so painful I needed a stick to walk. Within six sessions my pain had disappeared. –A.P.

I attended Mike’s clinic with a knee problem. He examined me thoroughly and advised me I may have a torn cartilage and physiotherapy would not cure it. He gave me exercises and wrote to my GP. I have since had the cartilage removed and returned to Mike for further treatment and I am now playing sport again.–D.B. ,Harlow

I would like to thank you for your excellent care. I saw Gavin today who was extremely helpful, professional, kind and i already have some relief from pain. I am am very impressed by the practice, the receptionists are welcoming and efficient. I will recommend to all my friends and colleagues. .–F.H. -Harlow
