Child & Adolescents Physiotherapy (9+)

The team at MSO Physio have worked extensively with adolescents, particularly involved in high level sport and have a special interest in musculoskeletal and orthopaedic conditions affecting this very special age group.

The growing body is subject to huge changes over a relatively short period of time and requires a very specialist approach when assessing and treating often very painful conditions. It is often also at this age that problems can begin to take root and present as problems in later life. Therefore an effective understanding of the underlying causes of problems should be identified and then corrected to help prevent problems into adulthood.

The clinic’s approach includes thorough musculoskeletal and biomechanic testing to identify the root cause of the problem as often growing children lack a great deal of coordination and may move in relatively awkward ways.

With care and attention these movements can be rectified and the individual taught how to improve strength and flexibility in a safe way and begin to understand their bodies in far more detail.

Sports specific training programmes as well as biomechanical corrective exercises are used to help maximise recovery and to prevent future occurrence of injury.

"I was under the care of Nick suffering from pelvic misalignment, muscle spasm and sciatica. During the time I underwent treatment I was accurately diagnosed with an impingement of the sciatic nerve which was later confirmed with an MRI scan as a bulging lumbar disc.

During the time I received treatment, I experienced relief from the symptoms and was given a series of exercises to carry out for self-care in between appointments. Nick was very practical and pragmatic with the advice he gave me, informing me that surgery is really a last resort and that there are various other options to help recover from the issue.

I have now been given the opportunity of receiving Pilates in a class run at the clinic by a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist, which will be bespoke treatment for the spinal issue I am experiencing. I would happily recommend this clinic and their staff to anyone experiencing any issues."


"Nick helped me after I started experiencing pain in my hip/leg from weightlifting. He not only identified and guided me through fixing the problem, but has also given me a great deal of valuable advice for my training. Very happy with the results, would definitely recommend."

Kim Wilson

"Cannot recommend the clinic highly enough. Nick treated my daughter after knee surgery. Hugely thorough, knowledgeable and caring. There are physio teams and physio teams.... This is the best I've experienced in years."

Andrew Willmott

"Unlike what the last guy posted, this is probably the best physio practice I've been to. I've been to other 'professional' physios that provide treatment for the sake of appearing to do something. The first session is generally a consultation to examine the issues. The ongoing advice and treatment is fantastic."

Stacy Walter

"Great Clinic. Staff is great and very professional. Have had quick a few sports massages with Kieran O'Connor. Highly recommend it!"

Cristina Duarte

"Fantastic service from start to finish. These guys know what they are doing!"

Aine Ringrose

Simon Rushton
