Kevin Pietersen MBE, England Cricket, 7 March 2014
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.
David-Roy Wood and Allana Penny, International Tumblers
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.
Ben Hazell, GB Decathlete
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.
Simon Orr, Physiotherapist, So physical.
I have been lucky enough to have worked with All Sports Medicine for the last 7 years. Both Dr Wotherspoon and Dr Moghul have extensive sports medicine expertise in managing athletes from elite to recreational. They have a holistic management strategy with a mix of medical management, physiotherapy and strength/conditioning ensuring a smooth journey from diagnosis to full return to play.

“On Sunday I completed the London Marathon in a time of 4:46:15. I actually ended up running 27.9 miles as a result of not being able to take the racing line (according to the GPS on my phone anyway!). Turns out running with 42,000 other people can have its complications.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the team at Nuffield Healthcare, but in particular to Dr Wotherspoon. He was very understanding of my condition, and was able to give me the treatment needed in order to complete my goal of running the marathon. While my time was slower than I know I am capable of running, the fact I was able to even get to the start line was because of the treatment I received”
“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.”
