WHAT WE OFFER

We offer a range of services to meet every need

Physiotherapy plays an important role in rehabilitation for those who have undergone surgery, experienced an accident or sporting injury or have conditions that affect the joints, muscles and nerves, for example arthritis or repetitive strain injury.

At Wallingford Physio, a comprehensive assessment will provide you with all the information on your condition so that you understand the nature of the problem, its cause and the recommended treatment and rehabilitation.

We are a team of highly qualified musculoskeletal specialists. We are all qualified to degree level and also have many years of postgraduate training in our specialist areas. We work closely, cross referring patients between physiotherapists and rehab therapists, to create a unique treatment programme for each patient to enable them to reach their goals, whether that be high level sport or walking the dog.

Our services include the following:


  • Back or neck pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Ligament sprains
  • Post-operative care
  • Tendonitis
  • Repetitive Strain Injuries
  • Accident related injuries
  • Work-related injuries

Specialising in assessment, diagnosis and treatment

KATH LANE
Clinical Director & Qualified Physio

Kath Lane Qualified from Pinderfields college of physiotherapy in 1992 with a Grad Dip Phys MCSP and started work at the Royal Berkshire Hospital. I continued working there specialising in Orthopaedics, rheumatology and musculoskeletal outpatients.

In 1996 I started work at the Police Rehabilitation Centre, again specialising in musculoskeletal conditions and rehabilitation. Then in 1998 I set up Wallingford Physiotherapy Practice which later expanded to include Martha Venner and Ian Barron, who are both very experienced musculoskeletal therapists. I then went on to develop rehabilitation services with Nathan Clayton, a sports and Rehabilitation therapist.

The Practice has gone from strength to strength and now offers physiotherapy most days including Saturdays, and now offers Hydrotherapy, a special interest of mine. I am also very interested in Rheumatology, chronic pain and Orthopaedic rehabilitation.
