Sports Injury Management
MSO Physio is a specialist musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy clinic. This means that all of our physios have a special interest in and have attended post-graduate courses in the assessment and treatment of sports injuries. Each member of the team has interest in particular sports and between us we are confident that we can see any sporting injury.
With very strong links to sports medicine clinics in and around London, the team at MSO Physio are able to access the best diagnostic and treatment facilities to help you to overcome your problem.
The vast majority of the team’s experience is in the assessment, management and treatment of injuries in Tennis and other racket sports but we also have extensive experience with men and women involved in Rugby, Judo, Triathlon, Marathon, Athletics (sprint, long distance and field events), Martial Arts, Football, Fencing, Gymnastics and Dance. These include professional sportspeople and national/international medal winners.
This important area of physiotherapy also covers the majority of injuries that we will pick up from time to time during our daily lives and you do not have to be a sportsperson to pick up a sports injury.
Sports physiotherapy requires a particular approach to ensure that the root cause of the problem is identified, as all too often only the symptoms are treated. Therefore thorough examination underpinned by an expert understanding of anatomy, biomechanics, pathology, exercise physiology and human movement are the basis of the sports injury assessment. The use of specific tools like the SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment) and FMS (Functional Movement Screen) are also excellent tools to help the clinician to identify why a problem is occurring not when.

"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."
