Wendy Skinner

BSc (hons), MCSP, MMACP, KCMT

Wendy qualified in 1995 with a Bachelor’s degree in Physiotherapy. She then spent the next 7 years working for the NHS, majority of which was at Charing Cross Hospital in Hammersmith. In 2002 she decided it was time for a change and entered the world of private practice physiotherapy. Wendy purchased Wimbledon Physiotherapy Clinic in 2003. She has since continued to further her knowledge base and has become a qualified member of the MACP. Through this Wendy has become a mentor and invests time into teaching and guiding the next generation of physiotherapists. She holds certificates in both sport’s physiotherapy and orthopaedic medicine. Wendy also holds an accreditation as a Kinetic Control Movement Therapist through Keele University with her final project being a study into the clinical evidence of muscle activation and recruitment after single segmental lumbar spine surgery.

Wendy enjoys treating the whole musculoskeletal system, but her main passion and area of expertise is in the treatment of orthopaedic patients, especially after ACL repair, Achilles Rupture (both conservatively managed and surgically repaired), joint replacements, and spinal surgery and she is very passionate about the importance of early intervention.

Wendy also has strong links with many of the top local orthopaedic surgeons and with their input, has developed treatment pathways to ensure that the best possible outcome is achieved for all orthopaedic patients. There are many patients who have had successful surgery to repair a ligament, tendon or fracture and are then left for 6 weeks to heal with the same exercises and instructions. Wendy believes all patients undergoing surgery should have access to the highest quality rehabilitation programs as some of the top athletes who undergo similar procedures.

Outside of physiotherapy, Wendy enjoys spending time with her friends and family and taking her dog on long walks.
