Testimonials

 

Mark Wotherspoon has worked with the England cricket team since 2007 and his care for both the players and management has always been highly professional, thorough and sympathetic. He understands both the needs and pressures of the individuals and the Team and always manages to balance the two. He is happy to go the extra mile and has certainly helped me manage my injuries and continue to perform to the best of my ability.

Both of us are international standard gymnasts working specifically in tumbling gymnastics. We have been seeing Dr Mark Wotherspoon and he has been the reason for our fast recovery. Allana was having big problems with her back and ankle only weeks before the World Championships late last year. Dr Wotherspoon got her to a competitive state and she was able to compete in this high level international championship and finished in overall 6th position in the world. Without his high level of knowledge and reassurance she would never have been able to compete the way she did.

In 2010 I suffered declining performances in my athletics and was struggling to achieve my potential. I had planned to qualify for the 2010 Delhi Common Wealth Games and in the hope that I could keep my dream alive, I visited Dr Wotherspoon. Together we set about a plan that helped me to recover from what could be described as overtraining fatigue, by addressing my diet and life style management. Subsequently I went onto qualifying for the CWG as the number one British Decathlete. Without the support and advice from Dr Wotherspoon, my season would have ended by watching the CWG on TV, instead I was there competing for a medal.
