Anyone knows of a good sport injury specialist? I sustained a problematic ankle following an emergency call.

I've been to see the NHS podiatrist from my GP practice. Each podiatrist would inform me that I would be referred to a sport injury specialist in my next appointment. I have seen four podiatrists so far who have said the same.

Hi mate

There was a similar question a few years back on the thread here.

Guys & St Thomas's have (private) physiotherapy units. I'm not sure how the smoke and mirrors of referral works but maybe you can get to see to them if various NHS podiatrists are suggesting the same treatment?

Balance Phyisio in Clapham are brilliant. They completely sorted me out after a knee operation. The guy I saw also supported some UK sports teams at the Commonwealth games, so they must be good.

Many thanks to all. Boss St Boss, thanks for the useful old thread as well.

I am a slightly lardy marathon runner who trains erratically, so very prone to injury. I go and see Fuschia at Snowsfields Wellness - she's bloody brilliant.

Snowsfields is a short walk for me. Cheers.
