Adrian Wagstaff is the lead physiotherapist, owner, and clinical director at Core Body Clinic. He has a wealth of experience in sport and musculoskeletal physiotherapy and holds both a BSc in Physiotherapy and a Master’s (MSc) degree in Manual and Manipulative Therapy. In addition, Adrian is qualified to deliver steroid and hyaluronic acid injections for tendons and joints and is a Musculoskeletal sonographer. Adrian is also a shockwave specialist, using this treatment for Musculoskeletal pain and Men’s Health.
Having always played sport Adrian understands how frustrating pain and injury can be. He has suffered ankle sprains, cartilage tears, hamstring ruptures, quad ruptures, rotator cuff tears and a head injury – all while playing rugby. It is what got him interested in physiotherapy!
Adrian uses a very ‘hands-on’ approach in delivering physiotherapy and uses this in combination with sports specific rehabilitation techniques. He is passionate about helping his patients and reducing their pain to promote function. He is also a great advocate of prevention and is therefore keen to help patients enhance their overall wellbeing. Adrian believes everyone should receive the same level of expertise and clinical commitment afforded to the professional sportsperson, whatever level of activity or sports participation.
Adrian is also one of very few male chronic pelvic pain and prostate surgery rehabilitation physiotherapists. He is skilled in the treatment of complex male pelvic pain and also in the rehabilitation of the pelvic floor after prostate surgery (incontinence and erectile dysfunction).
Greg qualified in 2006 and currently combines his role at Core Body Clinic with a specialist role in the NHS. He has worked as an extended scope practitioner since 2012, assessing patients with complex spinal (back and neck) pain.
In addition, he is also qualified to deliver injections, order MRI scans and X-rays, and order specialised blood results. Greg is well respected in the clinics and works alongside orthopaedic pain and rheumatology consultants in Reading, Newbury, and the Wokingham community.
Gianmarco graduated in Italy in 2013 and collected different experiences in varying fields of physiotherapy and focused his training in musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy.
He was previously a professional volleyball player, and he has competed in multiple championships in Italy winning one national and two county league championships. Having spent 16 years on the court and 10 years as a physiotherapist, he has come across and treated a large range of sports injuries and specialises in shoulder injuries. He uses a combination of hands-on therapy, tailored exercise plans, and acupuncture.
Determination and resilience are key to success in sports and also in the physical rehabilitation of injuries, and Gianmarco works hard with all his patients to help them achieve the best outcomes.
“Very impressed with physiotherapist care and knowledge. I would definitely go back and would highly recommend.”
“Very impressed with this clinic. I had physio on my back with Dale. He had knowledge of the latest techniques and was gentle but also thorough. I’ve been twice. I’ve had physio before and a chiropractor before him, but Dale relieved the pain on the 1st session and taught me about my back plus exercises. Also, just need 3 sessions, not endless sessions! Money well spent.”
