What to Expect

We are here to help you from your first contact with us at Wimbledon Physiotherapy through to the completion of the treatment. 

Upon arrival you will need to complete a patient registration form, so it’s a good idea to arrive a little bit early for your first appointment. We will take your details, GP details, medical insurance information and ask for your consent for us to treat you at Wimbledon Physiotherapy. 

During your first appointment your physio will talk to you about your current problem covering any other significant past injuries or medical conditions, so they can better understand your pain, the cause of pain and your medical history. They will do an initial examination which will include numerous relevant tests to establish the primary cause of the issue. Our physiotherapy treatment is different! We don’t just treat your pain, but look for the cause of your injury.

You will then be treated for your injury or problem by your physiotherapist using appropriate treatment techniques which may include manual therapy, soft tissue techniques, aquatic rehabilitation (in partnership with Aqua Physio), Biodex balance system, electrotherapy and acupuncture.

At the end of your session, any exercises and/or the best course of action for your treatment will be decided and planned by your physiotherapist and any need for further treatment will be discussed.
