"Annika was highly skilled in helping me with managing my knee troubles after I snapped my ACL in a sporting accident. She's very friendly, professional and informative and I have definitely noticed a big improvement both in my physical health and with general worries regarding my knee. Really good experience here. "


" Great clinic. Made recovery from a nasty knee injury an enjoyable experience. Would recommend to friends and family. "


" Great Experience overall. Loved the clinic, very neat and cosy and I felt straight away at ease before during and after my assessment/treatment. Annika is a highly professional and friendly physiotherapist who not only helped me with my lower back pain management when I visited her clinic for the first time, she also gave me very useful after care tips that I still carefully follow. 🙂 "

" I have been seeing Annika at Wimpole Street Physiotherapy Clinic for a couple of months now following a total knee replacement and she has been absolutely fantastic with my recovery and rehabilitation. I have been provided with a comprehensive range of exercises to work on in my own time, complete with annotated instructions, as well as receiving invaluable massage and manipulation during sessions to help improve the range of movement in the new joint. I would highly recommend to anybody recovering from a similar joint replacement. "


" Following completion of an Ironman in October 2015 I was treated by Annika for a number of sports related injuries associated with long distance events. The level of care and attention to detail was exemplary and I was back in full training under the timescales originally anticipated. I highly recommend Wimpole Street Physiotherapy Clinic for any sports injuries and believe that all patients will get truly professional and targeted treatment! Thanks "

" Due to an ankle injury not getting any better over time, I was recommended Wimpole Physiotherapy clinic, having never experienced Physio before. The clinic is easy to get to being quite central, well decorated and Annika is amazing. We went through my injury and how I was getting on now, and tested what i was able to do my my ankle. I have had a few sessions now and I can really feel the swelling finally going down (which has been there for 6 months!) and my range of motion in the ankle has improved so much as well that i can finally wear heels again! The exercises to do in my own time are very well explained in the sessions and also in the programme itself. I couldn't recommend Annika enough, she is very welcoming, friendly and professional, well worth a visit if you need physio "
