Sports Nutrition

We see clients ranging from body builders and figure competitors trying to cut for competition, to triathletes and marathon runners looking to fuel a PB time.

In order to help you achieve your goals we need to know as much as possible about you and your current sports nutrition plan. Your initial appointment is a consultation and may last up to 1 hour depending on how complexed your medical and sports training history is. All follow up appointments last up to 30 minutes depending on how much we need to go through in that session. 

 

First we will establish your goals and expectations, and I will go through your past medical history, training history and current dietary habits.

Next I may take some anthropometrical measurements such as height, weight, body fat, BMI, waist circumference and waist to hip ratio if clinically indicated or if requested. This provides starting point data from which to measure your progress, particularly if weight loss, changing body fat levels or increasing muscle mass are your primary goal. This is is not a mandatory part of the initial consultation as many people do not want to be weighed and measured and that is ok.  

Once we have completed the consultation I will use any remaining time to provide you sports nutrition advice. This may be in the format of written advice, meal and snack recommendations, a diet plan with recipes or even as in-depth as measuring and tracking macronutrients and calories depending on what you request. Please indicate what level of input you would like.

In some cases this is all that is needed and we can meet again in one or two months time to check in, re-take measurements and discuss your progress. Others might need more frequent input.

It is not unusual for it to take at least 3 months to see significant changes in your body composition, but you should start to feel the benefits in your training and recovery almost immediately.

Ready to Make a Change?

At Wandsworth Physiotherapy & Osteopathy we're focused on getting you out of pain and back to what you love doing, from simply sitting comfortably to playing with your kids, getting back into the gym or being able to run 5k again, our expert Physiotherapists, Podiatrists & Osteopaths are here to help!

 

All appointments are secured with payment. All appointments cancelled within 24 hours of the start time or not attended will not be refunded.

Benefits of Sports Nutrition…

Additional Testing

Most people we work with reach their goals with nutrition and supplement advice. However, in a few cases more input is required to take your performance and recovery to the next level. There may also be some additional testing required in order to help you:

Sweat patch testing and interpretation

This helps to establish how much sodium and chloride you lose in your sweat. We all have different genetic express for sweating and your performance could be hindering by excessive sodium loss leading to cramping. Once we have assess this we can ensure you have the right amount of sodium in your diet. We can also work out your sweat volume and make sure you are consuming enough fluids in training and competitions.

BioSignature, body fat assessment and interpretation

This helps to establish where you are storing body fat in relation to other areas, For example you may be storing more fat around you waste and we will need to manage your carbohydrate consumption.

Salivary, immune and hormonal markers and interpretation

Immune markers such as sIgA can be measured in saliva. This marker is sensitive to stress and we know that it is decreased in over training that can lead to upper respiratory tract infections. We can also measure stress hormones in saliva to see how your hormonal system is adapting to training and performance.

NutrEval  
A comprehensive blood and urine test to establish your need for vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, essential fats and vitamin D. This also shows markers for amino acid metabolism, toxic metabolites and bowel health.

What are the tests for?

These tests highlight how your body is responding to the stress that you are exposing it to and how you can optimise your training, nutrition and recovery strategies.

Armed with these test results, your anthropometrics and food diary I can put a detailed nutrition plan together for you that will help you work towards your goal.

This level of input does have costs associated to it with the testing and follow up sessions that are required.

Follow up sessions are recommended on a monthly basis to implement the actions required based on testing results and you will need to commit yourself to this process for a number of months.

We look forward to being to help you improve your performance.

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!

Rogel referred me to a consultant before treating me as he wanted to rule out a frozen shoulder before he started physiotherapy. His suspicion of my having a frozen shoulder was correct. This allowed me to get the correct diagnosis and corresponding treatment done quickly and efficiently.

I can't recommend this place and Physio Shreya enough! 10 weeks go I got referred to Wandsworth Physiotherapy by a friend after I was suffering with chronic neck and back pain. Shreya immediately found the cause, diagnosed me, and assured me of what the next steps would be. Not only does Shreya have healing hands, she continuously helped me mentally. After all of the advice, exercises, and dry needling, I am now pain free and able to return to my everyday activities (including exercise). Thank you Shreya, you are incredible!

This place is great! I got here with a really bad pain in my shoulder and neck and I got better really fast. I got treated by Shreya, who is AMAZING. Really good therapist, doing a mix of techniques to relieve pain, and also really empathetic. She id also specialised in sports, which means she was able to advise on how I can continue my regular workouts, despite my pain. I am always looking forward to my sessions here and I can see great progress with my injury. 10/10 would recommend!

Christina has been treating some issues with my neck, back and shoulders for 18 months now and she is the best physiotherapist I’ve ever had. She is a miracle worker with massage but also educates me about posture, injury prevention and the best forms of exercise and injury care. She is A-MAZING.

I've had about 8 sessions at Wandsworth Physiotherapy. Rogel did an amazing job and has been able to help me with the tendinopathy I've had for about 2 years! He created a plan especially for my own goal. I've had shockwave therapy, some exercises to do and advices on the sport I could do and when. Great place!

Rogel, your customer service is amazing! You took time to listen and understand issues. The treatment and exercises you provided were beneficial and helped me to continue exercising and compete at Hyrox. Thank you!

Was booked in with Rogel for a shoulder injury that has been a long term problem impacting my ability to do sport. Over 5 sessions I have seen significant improvement and have been given the tools to continue to get stronger. Hoping to book in with him again for a knee injury as well. Great guy and super knowledgeable!

Prarthi has been absolutely fantastic at helping me to recover from a shoulder injury over the last few months. My pain had dramatically reduced after the first session and she has continued to help throughout. She is extremely knowledgeable and has really helped me to understand the mechanics of my injury. I cannot recommend her enough! Thanks so much :)
