Balham Physio has been operating since 2011, when we were awarded a small NHS contract to provide physiotherapy and osteopathy for back and neck pain. Patients were allowed to see us for four treatments of manual therapy, and we became the preferred provider in Wandsworth and received thousands of referrals from local GPs who trusted us. We also grew our private practice in Balham, seeing many private patients at Balham Park Surgery and Balham Hill Medical Practice (this GP surgery has now closed, and in 2021 became a dentist).
We had been looking for premises in Balham for several years. However, prices were very high. At least, in 2020, an opportunity came for us to buy our own premises. The site was being redeveloped and we put in an offer to purchase the leasehold of the site, which was accepted. In 2023, we purchased the freehold too.
For many years, the site had been a hardware and general store. It had seen better days, and in 2019 the building was put up for auction and sold to developers. Here are some images of the old front and inside of the hardware store. We opened Balham Physio in 2022.
We had a lot of hard work from Kay and her dad, Pat. They did an incredible job to support the opening.
We warmly invite you to come to the jewel in Balham, that we feel enhances the local offering and supports the local Balham community.
We recently had an opening night and the Mayor of Wandsworth came to open our clinic!
