Insurance cover for sports injuries

Hi all

I arrived in Switzerland a month ago and I'm trying to decide what health insurance to go with. I do a lot of running, cycling and swimming and pick up the odd minor injury every now and then so the main thing that I'd like my insurance to cover are consultations and treatments related to these injuries.

In the past this has meant going to see a physiotherapist or a consultant that specialises in sports injuries. When I have seen a consultant I generally need to get an MRI and some form of treatment (e.g. steroidal injection, rehab program). The SportClinic Zurich ( has been recommended to me as a one stop shop for sports injuries but I'm not sure what supplemental would cover this or if it might be covered by a basic health insurance package.

Does anyone know what insurance I would need take out to cover some or all of the cost of this?
