Over 20 million people in the UK (around a third of the population) are living with an MSK condition, with figures continuing to grow. This is driving demand for physiotherapy services from both the NHS and employers, as they look to rehabilitate those with existing MSK conditions and prevent others from developing issues.
Private operators are benefitting from this increase in demand, both by providing outsourced services to the NHS and by working with corporates to ensure the wellbeing of their employees.
This is driving M&A activity in the market, with private equity investing into a number of the larger operators in recent years.
