Don’t let an injury stop you taking part

IN 30 MINUTES OF YOUR TIME WE WILL GET YOU ON THE RIGHT PATH TO RESOLVING YOUR SPORTS INJURY – GUARANTEED

You’re training for the marathon or a triathlon; or you’ve just started in the gym to reach a certain health goal; or perhaps you’re getting out on the pitch, the road or the bike again to get back in shape. Like most recreational and professional athletes alike YOU LOVE TAKING PART in your sport – you train hard and you set yourself challenges to get fit or to smash your PB.

But now your Achilles is stiff and sore going down stairs in the mornings and your hip flexors are feeling tight; your knees are sore when you train and walking to work is agony; or you shoulder is sore when you serve or your elbow hurts just lifting a kettle..

You can’t train at your desired level right now, you’re not sure if you should train through it or if that will do more damage. You’re having second thoughts about whether you’ll be able to keep training or compete…

Not only that, you miss clearing your head from a busy days work and you miss catching up with team mates and friends. Not being able to exercise is killing you.

Does this sound familiar?

At Wandsworth Physiotherapy and Osteopathy we hear this all the time!

We understand how frustrating it is for you not to be able to train or compete. You don’t want to be told to stop exercising! You don’t want to be told to rest and take ibuprofen. Being able to exercise is what makes YOU FEEL ALIVE

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?

Well, we can help get you back there…

Don’t waste money on ineffectual home treatments and internet gurus who haven’t listened to your training plan, assessed your goals and understand what your problem is. Certainly don’t trust advice from anyone who hasn’t watched how you move or tested your strength and flexibility.

In just 30 minutes one of our expert team can identify what is causing you to have problems and can put together a treatment and home exercise plan for you.  We will finally fill you with confidence and the true freedom to go back out and enjoy what YOU LOVE DOING MOST.

Sports Injury Assessment and Treatment

Taking part in sports is a great way to stay physically fit and socially active. You might do a sport to unwind from a stressful day at work, or with your friends, or you might do a fitness class or cardio tcircuits for your sport.

But with more and more people taking part in sports, there are more and more people suffering from sports injuries that can range from being an annoyance and reducing the enjoyment of your sport to down-right agony that stops you in your tracks.

We can help you if you have already sustained an injury or suffered a contact related sports injury. These include:

  • A ligament sprain such as the ankle ligaments or MCL in the knee
  • Stress fractures and broken bones
  • A torn ACL or recovering from ACL reconstruction
  • Muscle strains such as a hamstring or calf strain
  • Muscle contusions
  • Pubic overload / abdominal or adductor related groin pain

A Sports Injury Assessment and Treatment is ideal if you are recovering from a more serious injury such as those listed above. One of our expert therapists will assess your injury and put a treatment and home exercise rehabilitation plan together to help get you back on track. Treatments and rehabilitation plans include the latest, up to date and scientifically proven treatment techniques such as manual therapy, taping and shockwave as well the best exercise programmes for your injury.

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. 

We can also recommend who else in our team you might need to see. We might recommend you have some physiotherapy or osteopathy, podiatry, sports massage or sports nutrition advice. 

Not only do we help treat and manage contact injuries, we also help you with non-contact over load injuries. You’ll know the most common non impact sports injuries as follows:

  • PLANTAR FASCIITIS
  • ACHILLES TENDINITIS
  • SHIN SPLINTS
  • RUNNER’S KNEE
  • IT BAND SYNDROME
  • HAMSTRING TENDINITIS
  • LATERAL HIP PAIN
  • LOWER BACK PAIN
  • Tennis and golfer’s elbow

A Sports Injury Assessment and Treatment is ideal if you are regularly playing a sport and starting to feel a niggle. Don’t let it develop in to an injury that will stop you getting out on the road, training or playing. 

All of these non contact injuries can be boiled down to being caused by poor biomechanics or poor organisation of your training plan. We can look at both of these for  you.   

In your Sports Injury Assessment and Treatment session we can screen 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 movement. We can also assess the strength and flexibility of key muscle groups that affect your running gait or, if left untreated, could lead to an injury.

Once we have the information we need we will design you an injury prevention corrective exercise programme focusing on correcting your imbalances. This programme will include stretches and corrective strength exercises to improve your sports injury in the longer term and reduce the risk of it from happening again. 

After we have corrected your movement, flexibility and strength, given you treatment (if required) and given you exercises and running technique advice we can then look at the planning of your training, helping you to get the right frequency and duration of training sessions in place to manage a sports injury or help you prepare for an event.

At Wandsworth Physiotherapy and Osteopathy we believe there is nothing more frustrating than being injured and not being able to take part in sport. Call us today so we can HELP YOU end that frustration

Here’s just some of the people we have helped…

 

“I needed help with a running related injury. Within minutes they had correctly diagnosed my problem and started treatment, the effects of which I started to feel immediately. After 3 sessions of acupuncture, massage and ultrasound, and following their advice for self-treatment I was back to fitness.” 

Mike Haynes, Spartan racer.

 

“Steve Helped me get in shape for important Premier League and International games and was a huge help in getting me fit for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.” 

Mark Schwarzer, former Premier League and Australian team GK.

 

“Steve helped me get through a shin injury and get to the start line of the British Half Marathon Championships (Vitality Big Half). I ran the race pain free, finishing with a PB and a 3rd place. I definitely recommend Steve and his great treatment and service. I’ll be going to Wandsworth Physio to get me to the start line of the Olympic trials at London marathon.”

Stephanie Davis, Team GB elite distance runner.

 

“I received physio treatment from Wandsworth Physio for my shin splints. Preparing for an Ironman I was really worried I wouldn’t be able to run for a long time but after only a few weeks I could start again, taking it gently and completing all recommended exercises I recovered quickly and am now in good shape for my race. So grateful for their help!” 

Jessica Rice, recreational triathlete.  

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.

Marina Williams

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!
