Don’t let an injury stop you taking part
“You’re training for the marathon or a triathlon, or you’ve just started getting out on the pitch, the road or the bike to start exercising again to get back in shape.
But now your Achilles is stiff and sore in the mornings, your hip flexors are tight, your knees are sore when you train and going down stairs and walking to work now hurts.
You can’t train at your desired level right now, you’re not sure if you should train through it and you’re having second thoughts about whether you’ll be able to compete…”
Does this sound familiar?
At Wandsworth Physiotherapy and Osteopathy we hear this all the time.
You hit the winning shot, you beat your PB, you finish the marathon, you score the winning goal, you make the first team, you take part…
Do you remember how that feels?
We can help get you back there…

What is Sports Physiotherapy?
At Wandsworth Physiotherapy and Osteopathy we believe there is nothing more frustrating than being injured and not being able to take part in your sport.
We will help you by assessing and diagnosing your sports injury and by putting together a comprehensive sports injury treatment plan that will get you back to you love doing.
At Wandsworth Physiotherapy and Osteopath our sports injury experts will use a combination of sports massage, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation (IASTM), acupuncture and / or dry needling, K-tape and sports rehab exercises to get you back on track as soon as possible.
After your initial sports injury assessment session we will also e-mail you a personalised and detailed home exercise programme. This programme will include stretches and corrective strength exercises to improve your sports injury in the longer term and reduce the risk of your sports injury from happening again.
Your personalised home exercise plan can be accessed from mobile devices, laptops and computers. Each plan comes with video, pictures and descriptions so you know what you are doing at all times. You can also print out your plan and take it with you to the gym.
Run Fit Programme
Running is one of the most popular and easily accessible sports worldwide, you just need a pair of trainers and some outdoor space (or a treadmill). But with more and more people taking up running, there are more and more people suffering from running injuries that can range from being an annoyance and reducing the enjoyment of your running to down right agony that stops you in your tracks.
A Run Fit assessment is ideal if you are new to running or are planning on running a marathon or half marathon as we can help prevent you getting injured during the process. Or, if you are already running and you’re starting to feel a niggle then don’t let it develop in to an injury that will stop you getting out on the road.
You’ll know the most common running injuries as follows:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendinitis
- Shin splints
- Runner’s knee
- IT band syndrome
- Hamstring tendinitis
- Lateral hip pain
- Lower back pain
Run Fit assessment
All of these running injuries can be boiled down to being caused by poor running technique or poor planning of your training plan. We can look at both of these for you.
In our Run Fit screening assessment we can assess your movement patterns such as squatting, single leg squatting and hopping to see how your body reacts to these tasks and if there are movement faults that may impact your running. We can also assess the strength and flexibility of key muscle groups that affect your running gait or, if left un treated, could lead to an injury.
Once we have the information we need we design you an injury prevention corrective exercise programme focusing on correcting your imbalances. We can also recommend who else in our team you might need to see. We might recommend some osteopathy, podiatry, sports massage or sports nutrition advice.
After we have corrected your movement, flexibility and strength, given you treatment (if required), exercises and running technique advice we can then look at the planning of your running training, helping you to get the right frequency, duration and mileage in place to manage a running injury or help you prepare for an event.
I could not recommend Wandsworth physiotherapy more highly. Both Steve and Sid were invaluable to my marathon preparation and because they offer a wide range of services including physiotherapy, acupuncture and sports massage they are able to treat people in numerous ways to get the best results.
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.
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.
Great Physio. Adele is very knowledgeable and helpful. She knew exactly where the pain was and was able to fix it. Everyone is very friendly. It's definitely worth a visit if you have any sort of pain!
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!
