Been having treatment at MSK from Mark for a few months now and can honestly say he is amazing. I have suffered with a neck and shoulder injury for... quite some time and the GP just put me on medications, however since seeing Mark I have seen a vast improvement in my injury I’m in a lot less pain and no longer take the medication! A few months back I thought I would have to stop training but because of Mark I have been able to carry on pain free and as a bikini athlete this is vital! Highly recommend MSK Sports Injury Clinic!read more

Karl took the time to go through the issues I was having before starting a course of treatment and provided me with stretches to do at home too. Each session is tailored to tackling any current niggles and working on those which is great as I can feel the improvement in my mobility after each visit.read more
