About Physiocentric - Wimbledon

Physiocentric is a facility that provides highly professional physiotherapy treatment designed to help you recover to your best health as soon as possible. Conditions treated here include back pain, neck and shoulder pain, sports injuries, muscle injury, ligament injury, leg, foot and ankle injury, rehabilitation problems, referred / nerve pain, arm, elbow and wrist problems. They also have specialists in various fields like Women's Health Conditions, Hand Therapy (including splinting), Sports Massage and Physio-led Pilates. Treatments provided include joint manipulation and mobilisation, assessment and treatment of postural, pelvic and spinal alignment, sports injury treatments, soft tissue therapy, electrotherapy, including ultrasound and interferential therapy and many more. Also available is acupuncture and pilates.

The Wimbledon Village clinic boasts the fantastic facility of the Cybex Isokinetic Dynamometer, a hi-tech device used for muscle testing and rehabilitation. The isokinetic equipment allows us to evaluate strength, endurance, power and range of motion of all major joints and muscles, and provides highly detailed results of their performance. These results can then be used to determine the specific areas / deficiencies that need improvement. The equipment is frequently used to compare the strength of a limb post-injury in comparison with the non-injured side. This allows us a detailed analysis of how rehabilitation is progressing.
A common example is the assessment of a knee after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, and provides valuable information used to guide a safe returnto sport / work. A one hour session is required for isokinetic assessment, and a follow-up session will usually be recommended at a later stage. Please call the clinic if you would like further information regarding our isokinetic evaluations.
