Discover Wandsworth Town

Wandsworth Town

Spotlight: Physio Edge

The wonderful people of Wandsworth love a good workout, but what happens when your joints and muscles don’t quite feel like they should? We caught up with Gill Coates, chief therapist at Physio Edge, to find out more about their services, the benefits of physiotherapy, and what she loves most about Wandsworth Town.

Hey Gill! Tell us who you are and what you do.

I’m Gill, a physio who trained and worked in South Africa before moving to the UK in 2003.

How did Physio Edge come about?

I started Physio Edge Wandsworth about 14 years ago when I noticed a lack of high quality physio care options in SW18.

We are a physio and sports injury clinic dedicated to providing excellent customer care in the prevention and treatment of pain and injury.

I also run another branch in Chiswick.

Where can we find you in Wandsworth?

We are located inside Southside shopping centre, on Level 1, above Boots, by NCP car park 2.

What services do you offer?

We offer physiotherapy, sports massage, acupuncture, shockwave, rehabilitation, Pilates, and, most excitingly, diagnostic ultrasound, which can identify and diagnose pathology.

What are the benefits of Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy offers various benefits, including pain relief, improved mobility and injury prevention.

Our physio team manages a wide range of conditions, including musculoskeletal disorders. We also promote faster recovery from injury and surgery, and we provide tailored rehab programmes.

What physical signs should we be looking for that we may benefit from physiotherapy?

You don’t necessarily need to be in pain to benefit from physio. We often help people address imbalances in their bodies, as well as biomechanical assessments for sport and wellbeing. We work at being able to prevent injury, not just treat it.

But, generally, if you are experiencing pain, a limited range of motion or difficulties performing daily activities, you should contact our amazing team.

What’s your favourite thing about Wandsworth Town?

I love the community and the charm of Wandsworth Town. I live and work here and I love it! The people are friendly and the local businesses are unique, not to mention the warm and welcoming feeling in the area.
