Wimbledon Physio Clinic

Our expert Physiotherapists have years of experience in rehabilation and sports injuries. Treating a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions (joint, ligaments, muscle, bones) and our patient centred approach helps to deliver to you the best outcome.

Shoulder pain

Shoulder pain together with back and neck pain are some of the most common conditions seen at the clinic. A thorough assessment will provide you with a diagnosis and more importantly, the cause of the problem. Hands on treatment will alleviate some of the pain and a structured home exercise programme will give you continuing relief. This, in combination with our educative approach, will help you continue to improve and to avoid further problems.

Back and Neck pain

Back and neck pain are extremely common and can be debilitating if left untreated. We will help you understand the cause of the problem and give you the best way to treat and manage it. You will be safe in our hands. We also have a wide network of consultants we can refer to if we need further investigation or other pain management options.

Sciatica

Sciatica is where the large nerve that runs from your lower back to your feet becomes irritated or in some cases, is compressed. The pain can be in your bottom, at the back of your leg and can sometimes go down to your feet and into your toes. It may be a stabbing, burning, or shooting pain; your may feel pins and needles, numbness or weakness. If you have back pain without the leg pain, this is unlikely to be sciatica. Our experts can help you manage and ease the sciatic pain with hands on treatment, advice, education and exercises.

Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulder is also known as adhesive capsulitis. It is characterised by intense pain on sudden movements, severely restricted shoulder movement and night pain. This can be managed very successfully with physiotherapy and often does require pain killers to help with the episodes of intense pain or night pain. Sometimes injections are required and we have a network of clinicians who we can refer to for these injections. Some people would prefer to manage their condition without any form of injection and we can help you whichever your preferred course of action. With early physiotherapy, these conditions can often be less severe and will not last as long as if left untreated.

Tennis Elbow

Our physiotherapists have worked extensively in tennis both with recreational and professional players and tennis elbow is a condition we see a lot. In professional athletes the pain will be on the inside of the elbow due to the way they hit the ball. In recreational players the pain tends to be on the outside of the elbow – this is called lateral epicondylitis.
Tennis elbow is inflammation or, in some cases, microtearing of the tendons that join the forearm muscles on the outside of the elbow. The forearm muscles and tendons become damaged from overuse — repeating the same motions again and again.
We will firstly ask you questions about string tension, racket weight and grip size as many of these problems can be greatly eased by asking the advice of a tennis coach or racket stringer about the above.
If you have the correct string tension, racket weight and grip size then physiotherapy is the next option. We will assess, not only the elbow, but your whole technique as it is rarely just an elbow problem. It is more likely to be a combination of biomechanical ‘inefficiencies’ which manifest themselves in a painful elbow.
It is not only sports people who experience tennis elbow, many keyboard users will have similar problems due to the ergonomics of their workstation, or simply how long they are spending at their desk on the computer.
Whatever the cause, be rest assured that your physiotherapist will thoroughly assess and diagnose the problem and will explain the underlying cause. Treatment will be hands on initially with an increasing emphasis on exercises and education. Your physiotherapist will progress the difficulty of these on an individual basis until we achieve self-management or resolution. Many people with tennis elbow say that it never goes away. This need not be the case. With the appropriate treatment, management, and education we can and have achieved resolution of the condition.

Knee pain

Knee pain is common and can be caused by injury, growth spurts or normal wear and tear. An initial diagnosis from a physiotherapist is important to determine the best form of treatment. Keeping active is an essential part of your treatment and recovery. Our physiotherapists can advise you of the best exercises to do and how to do them so that we can help you prevent a recurrence of the problem and keep your surrounding joints and muscles flexible and strong. We can help you get back to a better level of fitness and can also advise you how to achieve a healthy body weight which will reduce the load on the knees and will reduce pain.

Hip pain

The most common types of hip pain seen in our clinic relate to conditions called Trochanteric Bursitis or Gluteus Medius Tendinopathy and arthritis. The pain with the former will be on the outside of the hip and the usual site of pain experienced with hip arthritis is in the groin area. There are many other causes of hip pain and a thorough diagnosis is essential to determine the cause of the problem and the best cause of treatment. Our approach will always involve a thorough explanation of why the pain is there and how we can best ease the pain. There will always be a course of exercises for you to do at home. We realise that a home exercise programme is at times difficult to maintain and, with that in mind, we might only give you one or two exercises. However, these exercises will be the most effective way of building strength and flexibility to protect the joint. All treatment is tailored specifically to the individual; their ability; their usual level or activity and their potential to do the exercises. We are all individuals with our own habits and we attempt to work within and develop these rather than imposing routines that will be impossible for you to stick to.

Post-Surgery Rehabilitation

Whether it is a hip or knee replacement, shoulder surgery or an ACL reconstruction we have a team of highly experienced physiotherapists who can tailori your rehab to get you back to doing what you love.

What Our Clients Say

Wimbledon Physio

"Thank You for the brilliant job you’ve done- I feel I’ve improved massively since starting with you. "

- Peter S

Thank you Katherine! I went to see Katherine after experiencing sharp pain in one of my knees. She was brilliant in guiding me through diagnostic (turned out I had Chondromalacia patellae) and helping me rebuild strength to be able to race again. It was a long and tricky recovery, but the efforts paid off and Katherine’s support was amazing.

- Laurent J

A truly gifted Physio! Katherine has been my go-to Physio for a number of years. She has an incredible insight to the workings of the human body and her intuitive way of working has me quickly back on track with an understanding of how I can help myself with whatever was going on that made me go see her in the first place! I love the way she approaches whatever ‘problem’ I present with in a whole system way. That’s rare. And that’s why I value her so much.
