⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I decided to try out MSK after reading many of the 5 star reviews... and so I had to get booked in.Laura managed to sort me out with an appointment almost immediately which was fantastic!I explained that I had been having aches and pains in my right shoulder and my left forearm, she found the source of the pain straight away which was impressive and she got to work straight away using her skillsets.I’m now 3 sessions in and the pain is reducing nicely, ROM is way better and I’m sleeping much better too! Thanks again Laura #RoadToRecovery💪read more

I have a thigh/groin strain which has been bothering me for the past 3 months. Yesterday I had the one hour combination therapy treatment from Steve.... Although it's a little early to comment on the overall effectiveness, as the thigh is still a bit tender, the quality of the treatment and Steve's knowledge is very impressive. I certainly feel as if I'm walking better.read more

If I could put 6 stars I definitely would. I have been using Mark and his team since they first started and have recommended them to so many as the... work they do is amazing.Being a competitive equestrian I take quite a few knocks and these guys always put me back together again.Recently I took a bad fall and broke my fib, tib and snapped my deltoid. After two operations and 8 weeks of elevation I was out my cast. Within 4 weeks Mark and Steven have worked miracles……I am walking unaided, and hope to be back in the saddle in the next couple of weeks.I believe without a shadow of a doubt that this would not have been possible without their help.If you have a pain, have tweaked a muscle or recovering from a sports injury or operation don’t think about it just book them. You will not regret it.Thank you guys. You are the best. 💥😊read more

Second visit with Laura today, extremely passionate about her job and it shows in the treatment she provides, very chatty and makes you feel at ease,... in my personal situation I suffer from back pain and sciatic pain, Laura not only knows what treatment will be best but provides great information how to manage my day to day duties and made herself available if I had any questions. I received the acupuncture, cupping and massage gun treatment. Highly recommend Laura to anyone in my position struggling with muscle and back pain 👍read more

I've had a few sessions with Steven. Needed help with tightness, aches and pains adjusting to working on my feet for long hours. He listens well,... discusses treatment methods and devises a suitable plan of action that sorts my problems out each time. He gave me some stretches info to help in-between visits too and I'm enormously grateful. My shins and calf's are coping better with the excessive walking around now and my muscles are less tight, especially after some deep tissue work by Steven. Booked in again next month. Highly recommended.read more

Do not look beyond these guys for MSK concers, from experience I've found no one better. I have been going on and off to the clinic since September... 2020 and there is simply no where else I would rather go. I have been to numerous physios, therapists and clinics about a reoccurring injury I am currently awaiting surgery for, and I have to say that Mark and his team are by far and away the best I have seen. Their prices cannot be matched for not only the range of treatments involved, but the technical knowledge and insight they are able to give regarding any questions or queries you may have. They always make you feel very welcome and relaxed, which is particularly helpful when going their for chronic pain problems. Every time I speak to a colleague or a friend, and they mention they have a little niggle or an injury I alway immediately suggest heading along to see Mark and the team, because I know from multiple experiences just how good they are.read more

I’ve been using MSK for a few years now for physio due to some injuries I suffered when younger and several accidents I’ve had over the past few... years, always a great service provided by Mark and his team and always gets me back on track with my recovery after each visit. My first ever visit to Mark gave me huge relief in my thoracic spine region which no one had managed to help with despite seeing numerous health professionals over the years, I’m really happy MSK was recommended to me and I’ve been using Mark ever since then.

Ive suffered with back/hip and leg pain for years on and off. After months of suffering, unable to walk far, with lots of sleepless nights I finally... decided to see a specialist. I booked with Laura as felt more comfortable with a female. Laura is very professional took all my history and didn't mess around she gave me four different treatments all within my hour appointment. Laura is very caring ensuring I felt comfortable throughout my treatment. She encouraged regular stretches and recommended specific stretches for my injury. I got instant relief and movement after my treatment and I was able to take less pain killers and walk for longer and sleep better. I booked in again for the same treatments and now feel almost pain free. I still have days where I've over done it but I am now able to exercise to regain strength. Overall the service MSK provide is outstanding having combined treatments definitely helps compared to NHS physio recommendations of stretching alone.read more

I had been suffering from a suffering from a sore, tight neck and bad headaches for over a month and MSK was recommended to me. My appointment was... with Mark who was very friendly, professional and made me feel comfortable straight away. He was quick to realise the issues were tension in my shoulders and neck which was then bringing on the tension headaches. I was treated with combination therapy using different methods of treatment across the affected areas. I went for a follow up appointment a week and a half later and I explained to Mark I had felt so much better. No issues with my neck, no banging head aches. I was so so pleased with how quick I was essentially fixed that I could not recommend MSK enough for anyone with similar issues. The treatment I received was top quality and the staff very experienced and knowledgeable, thanks againread more

Went to see Mark after he came highly recommended, I was preparing for the Great North Run and genuinely struggling with my calves, 2 days prior to... having my consultation I struggled to run 2 mile (this was 3 weeks till the GNR) after an hour with Mark I was able to run 7 miles the following day no problem. I completed the GNR without any tightening in my calves, I do believe I wouldn’t have completed it without his help.

After... only 1 treatment from MSK I was pain free the next morning which is something I hadn’t experienced in years.
