About Us

Our family, serving yours.   Mark was a former professional footballer who suffered an ACL injury. Unfortunately, his rehab and advice was poor and this inspired him to become a sports physio to help prevent anyone suffering the pain and loss of function and career that he did. Having served years in the NHS and at Huddersfield FC Academy and Sheffield FC, he along with wife Sarah decided to set up their own service in the heart of the community that Mark was raised in.  Founded in 2007, the clinic is now a multi-disciplinary team with decades of clinical experience between the therapists and is now a firm, trusted provider of private healthcare in the area.

Whatever their role or job, our team have literally spent thousands of hours in research and training. We hope you like us.


Director / Clinic Manager

Sarah started her career with the insurance giant Norwich Union (now Aviva) and worked her way up into management, ironically, moving into the Healthcare / Private Medical Insurance sector.  Sarah also worked  for the NHS where she gained valuable insight into primary healthcare in Sheffield.  She now manages everything from top-to-bottom at Sheffield Therapy Centre from the legal stuff to making an awesome brew! Basically, everything except the clinical therapy.

On a personal level Sarah’s life is centred around her one and only son – you can’t improve on perfection so she stuck to one. He’s a keen footballer and this strikes her diary out almost completely along with her husband Mark (physio) and Cockerpoo, Milo. Combine a little Prosecco, Rose wine and a giant bag of peanut M & M’s and she’s good as gold.  With all the waiting around she squeezes in Spanish on the Duolingo app and wholeheartedly recommends swimming to clear the mind and get the ticker going.  Sarah loves football too so is always glued to a match somewhere.  Sarah is tremendously clumsy and is lucky to be married to a physio to fix her.



Partner / Head Physiotherapist

Mark entered the world of Physiotherapy as a mature student, more years ago than he would like to admit. Following a brief career in professional football at Doncaster Rovers, where injury forced early retirement, he was inspired to study at Huddersfield University to become a chartered physiotherapist due to his experiences as an injured footballer. To aid his studies and gain experience he worked for 3 years with the therapists at Huddersfield Town F.C. Academy. Following this he turned down the opportunity to work in professional football, in order to further his knowledge base working for the NHS. After graduation he went on to work at Rotherham General Hospital and worked his way up to be a Senior Physiotherapist. Mark is our Head Sports Physio and has also worked as consultant physiotherapist to Sheffield Football Club, the world’s first football club. Mark can see any type of musculoskeletal problem but has a keen interest in sports injuries, particularly of the knee.

Mark is a keen runner and some would say with his arthritis and asthma he’s an inspiration to others that want to start exercising. As a sports physio, he is clearly interested in all sports – especially football. Watching, playing and coaching his son’s grassroots junior football league team takes up pretty much all of his spare time but has been a very enjoyable experience. He also enjoys comedy clubs, making a mess, fidgeting and boxing.



Chiropodist / Podiatrist

Matthew runs our regular Chiropody / Podiatry clinic every Thursday morning. With over 20 years experience, he is confident there isn’t much he hasn’t seen in the way of foot health. He is registered with the Health Care Professions Council and his work is recognised by many insurers. A very hard working man indeed and our patients are guaranteed to benefit from his experience and treatment. Very little daylight in his diary due his loyal patients spreading the word, so Matthew is running a cancellation list for anyone interested in his service.

Matt enjoys playing squash, supporting Liverpool FC and is  family man with three children and a wicked sense of humour; there is never a dull moment with Matt. Thursday morning clinics are certainly a highlight of our week in clinic having him around. A highly experience therapist and one that can also make a superb cup of tea. We love Matt.




Joe is an experienced musculoskeletal Physiotherapist and has run a joint replacement clinic within the NHS.  He can treat numerous mechanical deficits in upper and lower limbs, using manual therapy, education/innovative exercise techniques as well as specifically treating tendinopathies, tendon ruptures and mechanical/surgical spinal conditions.

Joe is a keen climber and also plays football too previously succeeding at semi-pro level.




Sophie is a musculoskeletal physiotherapist qualifying with first class honours degree. She is interested in finding the cause of an injury or problem, and utilising her skills and knowledge to achieve patient goals and improve outcomes. She is also qualified in sports massage so can help with those tight muscles.

Sophie is a keen cricketer through the summer months, and football occupies her time throughout the winter. Running has also become a hobby to fill the tiny amount of spare time she might have and completed the London Marathon in 2023. She has had a go at lots of sports and thrives off being in the outdoors to get the endorphins flowing.



Admin Support and Trainee

The reason the clinic exists – Lucas Roe.  When mum Sarah and Dad Mark struggled to fit work around a new premature baby, a new plan B was needed and Sheffield Therapy Centre was born.  In the blink of an eye, he’s grown up fast and is keen to master the trade he’s learned about from being a baby.

Lucas is now helping with accountancy, administration, cleaning and is also learning all about Sports Physio and Podiatry with Podiatry interesting him as a future career.  He’s academically gifted, super sporty and incredibly witty. Lucas plays football at a high level in grassroots and like most young ballers, has hopes of playing for a career although he realises the odds are against him so must keep his head in his books too.  The world is your lobster Lukey!




Ed is our receptionist providing assistance on evenings and weekends around his A Level studies.  A really hard worker, helpful and reliable.  Ed is a great addition to our team.

Ed is a keen gym goer and when he’s not at the gym, 6th form or work he can be found at festivals or happily munching a bit of chocolate with a cuppa.



The Beauty Culture
Ophelia is our resident Beauty Therapist adding a little sparkle to our clinic.  She does nails, waxing, microblading, lashes amongst other things.  “Fee” is a real “foody” and great cook often sharing new recipes with us cooking things from scratch!  Fee is also Vegan so a great inspiration to us.  She manages her own diary and clients and can be found on the FRESHA app with a full list of prices and services which can be booked directly with her.  She can also be found on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/thelashculture/


“I was playing football at a high standard before I had to have numerous injuries in my knee.  As a result, I started to fall out with the game and finally underwent an ACL reconstruction which required several months of intense physio.  Mark couldn’t have been more helpful putting me with Lee one of his work colleagues who specialises in ACL Rehab to help me strengthen and regain movement in my knee plus recovering my fitness. It was a tough process, but now I am back to playing my football again and most of all enjoying it!  This couldn’t have been achieved without  the hard work, time and guidance Mark and his team gave me – so for that, I really owe them one”.

I would like to thank Mark for the physio sessions I had on my Hamstring pull.  I was almost certain to miss my cup final but with the help of Mark I managed to play, score and make an assist. You wouldnt have believed I was injured 4 weeks prior.  LEGEND!”
