Dr Wotherspoon has treated my chronic plantar fasciitis with a course of shockwave therapy. He was flexible in fitting my treatments into a limited timescale, helping me to improve both physically and mentally over a short time period. He appeared personally invested to ensure my recovery whilst being professional and caring.
With his treatment and the joint management with my podiatrist at SO Physical, I can now walk and do my daily activities pain free.

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.

“I recently had consultations with Doctor Wotherspoon for my issues of acute joint pains. I was very impressed with the way he listened to my description o my ailments and then very quickly progressed on investigating the problems via MRI scans, X-rays and blood tests . His pro-active investigation enabled him to give me a diagnosis of my condition and hence the treatment required to give a quick route back to my full fitness again . The good communication from Doctor Wotherspoon at the times of the consultations and when informing me of test results gave me a very positive customer experience.
