Mark opened MSK Therapy in 2016 with the intention of creating a practice that would combine the best of traditional sports therapy with the principles and techniques of manual therapy and exercise rehabilitation.

With over 8 years of clinical experience, Mark's practice follows the philosophy that therapy is most successful when people are treated as whole human beings, not as individual parts, and his work is focused on finding and treating the root causes to live a pain free life.
