Hi! I'm Sam and I am the owner of Muscle Point Therapy UK (MPTUK for short... less of a mouthful). I graduated from the University of Hertfordshire as a Sports Therapist in 2016. Since graduating I have spent my time working in an array of sports from Rugby to Cricket, Football to Netball and Athletics to Beach Tennis! In addition to this I have seen many members of the public who are less sporty but have the desire to live pain free.
Just to clear something up.... No I am not a Physiotherapist, Sports Masseuse, Chiropractor, Doctor, Osteopath or Chef (although I can grill a mean rack of ribs). I am in fact a Sports Therapist and what we do is pretty cool. In addition to diagnosing muscle, joint and bone injuries, treating them via the use of Sports Massage, Exercise Prescription and Joint Mobilisations... We can also give advice on Nutrition, provide tailored Gym programmes, write GP referral letters, manage ACL injuries from initial incident to return to activity and provide taping and support... I think you get the point. The point is that we are a bit of a Jack of all trades but very good at all of them. Unsure if we can help? All you have to do is ask.
As mentioned I have worked within a number of sports. But that's not all that special. So let me give you a quick run down on my professional background. My course consisted of 3 years of study with a years placement in-between my 2nd and 3rd year (with me so far?). My first real hands-on experience outside of university occurred providing post-race massage for Cancer Research UK at the London Marathon. After this I spent my placement year working for Sussex County Cricket Club. Spending two years here was not only a lot of fun but it opened up other opportunities for me working with a professional rugby 7's side at Twickenham, GB bobsleigh at Loughborough University and running a post-operative knee class. Then since graduating I was Lead Sports Therapist for Worthing FC before taking a job with the same role for Phnom Penh Crown FC in Cambodia.... and that brings us to now.
My goal for MPTUK is to provide a Professional service at an affordable price. With the current health trend continuing and more research highlighting the benefits of exercise I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to get fit and healthy. We guarantee to be the cheapest Injury Management service on the market. So if you like what you read then get in touch and let MPTUK help you get moving!
