Physiotherapy

Is an injury stopping you from doing the things you want to do?

Does this describe you?

  • Is your shoulder aching when you exercises and is it painful to wash or dress?
  • Do you have a strange pain in your elbow that’s agony pouring a kettle or lifting objects – and you don’t even play tennis!?
  • Is your knee swelling up from time to time and it’s now starting to get sore each morning? 
  • Are you getting headaches that put you back to bed?
  • Are you waking with a stiff and sore foot and it feels like you have a pebble in your shoes?
  • Have you been exercising more and you’ve tweaked a muscle in your calf or hamstring and you now can’t keep exercising?

At Wandsworth Physiotherapy and Osteopathy our highly experienced team of physiotherapists treat people just like you every day and help them get back to what they love doing without the fear of further aches and pain

Our specialist clinics:

Your initial appointment with the physiotherapist will be 30 minutes. In that time you will be asked to explain your injury, how it happened, how long you have had it and how it makes you feel.

You will be asked to set some goals about what you want to achieve from your time spent with the therapist. Your physiotherapist will also run through your past medical history finding out about any medical diagnoses or medicine that you take.

Next your physiotherapist will carry out a physical examination looking at the affected area plus carry out an assessment of your posture and how you move.

Once they have carried out this assessment they will put together a treatment plan for you.

In the remaining time of your initial assessment and on subsequent treatment sessions they will carry out this treatment plan and also give you home exercises to do to either resolve your problem or to give you a management strategy to keep your symptoms under control.

Your therapist will endeavour to give you an accurate diagnosis and give you realistic expectations of how many treatments you will require to get better.

Most problems can be resolved within 4 to 6 treatment sessions. On occasion your therapist may refer you to a consultant for a second opinion to verify the initial diagnosis and treatment plan or explore other treatment options such as injections or surgery.

Your therapist may also refer you to other healthcare professionals that they feel would be appropriate to help you.

This may include a Pilates instructor, massage therapist, acupuncturists, nutritionist, women’s health specialist, osteopath or yoga instructor.

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a discipline involving the hands-on treatment of injuries and the prescription of rehabilitation exercises to help people overcome their pain and dysfunction.

Most physiotherapists start their training and career in the NHS working across a wide area of disciplines.

These include working with people who have had major traumas, broken bones or surgery; working with amputees or people with spinal cord injuries; and people with chronic degenerative injuries, back pain or sports injuries.

Physiotherapists look at your movement, posture and function, identifying faults in these areas and working on ways to improve them with hands on treatment and exercise.

Contrary to popular belief physiotherapists do not just treat muscles, or sports injuries – we treat the entire body improving spinal and joint movement, nerve mobility, the flexibility of muscle and fascia and by improving strength and muscle control through exercise. Physiotherapists may also use adjuncts to treatment such as tape, acupuncture or electrotherapy such as ultrasound, TENs or muscle stimulation.

Brilliant all round experience. After sustaining a marathon injury during training Wandsworth Physiotherapy managed to fit me in the next day and was back up and running within 2 weeks after three 30 minute sessions. Gave me exercises to go away and do in my own time too so felt like I was making the most of their and my time too.

These guys are fantastic! Really quick to reply and they found me an appointment on the same day. I've since had regular treatments with Alessio who is excellent, and my torn IT band, shoulder and other ailments are much improved. Brilliant for both sports injuries and wellness.

Gerry Sweetland

Booked an appointment for the same day on a Saturday. Adele has been very welcoming and helpful, providing useful advice as well as efficient treatment. Great local clinic, will definitely come back and recommend.

Jean Reverdy

Steve was excellent. Long term/complex shoulder injury treated over a number of sessions - patient, curious and methodical. Great treatments and programme of exercises and I'm back to pain free swimming.

~ Nick Outlaw

I've been several times for several different problems and Steve has always been excellent. He listens really carefully and asks good questions to find out exactly what's wrong, and is very clear with follow-up exercises to continue the therapy at home. Highly recommend him!

I entered Steve's massage competition at Wandsworth Physiotherapy never expecting to win but was delighted to win a year of deep tissue massages. I had previously seen Steve for chronic shoulder and back pain so winning treatment for a whole year was a real treat and it has helped keep my pain at bay. After each session, I could instantly feel the benefit with tension and stress in my muscles depleted. Thank you for running such an amazing competition! Professional, effective and flexible booking.

I saw Steve Hines after suffering with glute pain for several months. By using an ultrasound he was able to diagnose the issue straight away and then target the treatment - turns out it was a hamstring issue causing it which I'm not sure would have been picked up otherwise. Steve suggested a combination of physio and shockwave therapy, and home exercises, which have worked wonders and the issue is now almost resolved. Highly recommend Steve and the team at Wandsworth Physio.

I can highly recommend Wandsworth physio - I have seen Steve for various running niggles and always received really knowledgeable and practical advice to solve the route cause of the problem. There's also a whole range of treatment options available such as acupuncture, shockwave and ultrasound - all really helpful to have in one place!

Stephen is a real expert and has been incredibly helpful for me on two separate injuries. He has deep knowledge of various treatments and in my case was able to offer one of the latest innovations, which ended up really helping. Highly recommend.

I'd had problems with my shoulders, neck and mid-back for a long time due to many years of office work, bad posture and having a newborn baby to carry around. I was treated by Wilson who was extremely helpful and managed to help rid me of my pain! I have since moved to Denmark, but wish I could have taken him with me! An absolute gem who is not just great at what he does, but was so, so lovely and understanding. I give him the highest recommendation.
