Can’t recommend MSK (Mark & Laura) enough, and I’ve visited a few. Very professional, experienced and organized, with a great follow-up system. I... tore my hamstring and Mark had me back on the road to recovery very quickly. Second time around I visited due to Achilles issues. I have also old ITB and calf injuries that flare. Laura was outstanding and really worked the full sessions I booked to get my injuries sorted! Highly recommended.read more

I was recommended to Mark @ MSK Sports Injury Clinic by a friend of mine. Myself and my son (Thomas) had been looking for someone for a while. Thomas... has had sports massages at other places, but never felt a real difference. After one combined therapy session with Mark he was really impressed with it and I had a session focused on sciatica. After I felt like I had a new leg, it was amazing. Couldn’t recommend him enough, he is clear in everything he does and it’s benefits. Makes you feel really comfortable all round amazing service.read more

Known Mark since the days we used to kick lumps out of each other on the footy pitch, nowadays he just fixes the lumps I manage to self impose... through training. I’ve seen Mark dedicate the last 8 years to constant progression both in his knowledge, his experience and services he offers. I remember when he started the clinic and it’s been a real pleasure watching him grow his business to where it is today. He fully deserves to be booked out solid for weeks in end, he’s put the time, the effort and the sacrifice into becoming a master of his craft. For that reason I nicknamed him Miyagi 😂 I wouldn’t trust anyone else to sort out my injuries and as a budding practitioner in the making I will be picking his brains and asking for advice for many years to come in a bid to emulate his level of craft. Went to get a really painful lower back issue sorted today, couldn’t get out of the car without pain before it, it was hard to roll over in bed and often would get shooting pains down my leg. One session later and driving isn’t a problem, the stiffness has massively reduced and the shooting pains have gone - talk about value for money! I look forward to continuing my treatment protocols with Mark and celebrating his continued and future success. Nice one Miyagi lad!read more

I highly recommend MSK sports injury clinic. Combination therapy with Mark has made a massive improvement to my worst ever flare up of it band/knee... pain, I can now walk pain free and have started some light jogging again. In addition to massage and tailored combination therapy Mark has sent me stretches and strengthening exercises to support my recovery from injury. I have been so impressed with the service, my treatment and the difference it has made!read more

Found MSK from recommendations on Facebook. Attended for pain related to Plantar Faciitis. Within one session had subsided the pain i suffered for... the last year by 75% and after a second visit today already feeling further benefits to being nearly pain free. Mark concentrates on encouraging the body to repair itself and not continuous ongoing rehab. He has the latest in technology and treatments and is leading the way with combination therapy, inclusive of shockwave therapy. These therapies are to aid quicker repair and rehab. I would say it is very affordable and to at least have one visit at least to see an improvement. Speaking to Mark also he has explained and changed my perception on how the body works and the importance of looking after your muscles.For disclosure - despite being a blogger my appointments are fully paid for by myself and this review is my personal recommendation.read more

Excellent! My son is a 9year old goalkeeper who was struggling with pain in his knee and preventing him fromPlaying. Mark was really flexible and... arranged for see us ASAP due to the pain he was in. After 3 sessions and a rehab plan he’s back doing what he enjoys and pain free. I never thought my son would tolerate the therapy but with Mark’s approach with him he’s had the massage gun, cups and acupuncture!! My son actually enjoyed going! We’ll definitely keep going for maintenance therapy. Would very much recommend MSK sports injury clinic! Kerryread more

I... was recommended Mark and the treatment he provides, I can honestly say that even after only a few sessions I have managed to stay pain free for weeks and am not constantly conscious about the way I pick things up/bending down and generally doing the day to day things. I would seriously recommend this treatment to anyone.Thank you Markread more
