What Makes Us Different?
We believe in experience, the experience you receive and the experience we have to offer.
At M.S.T. individuality is key.
We live by the ethos that everybody deserves a personal, specific, individual approach, as no structure, injury, dysfunction or musculoskeletal issue is the same in any case.
You...are the only...you...in the entire world...and to us that's pretty exhilarating.
We aim to break away from the conventional referral system and offer a personal service where you are more than just a name on a diary, or a set of printed out exercises on a sheet.
A service that is truly there for you from start to finish, supporting, guiding, teaching and preventing further problems.
We offer not only professional qualified experience at the highest level, but also experience from real world endeavors.
You will never be treated by anybody at M.S.T. who has not had some form of rehabilitation needed themselves in the past.
With us we believe that it's fundamentally key to have been through the process and come out of it the other side, in order to truly be able to connect with, train or properly treat a person.
In any field, you never stop learning, developing, or growing and with each new person brings new skills that help us to consistently evolve.
It is that outlook that has allowed this clinic to be all about the person in need of analysis and treatment, one that you can trust, believe in and rely on.
Food For Thought
In this day and age, right now, as you read this, we have a major problem.
The human being is losing it's physiological functionality and cognitive efficiency at a staggering rate, for so many different timelessly proven reasons.
This translates to consistently high cases of pain, dysfunction, tension, restriction, injury, poor health, poor fitness and mobility, depression, anxiety and sadly increased chance of mortality.
We, truly, say all of the above with a heavy heart, but the facts, the figures, the data and the correlation are all there to be seen, from so many credible outlets, which is why here at Manchester Soft Tissue & Exercise Rehabilitation, our passion, our goal is to make sure we assist in keeping human beings as sharp and as functional as realistically possible.
Our agreement on the statements above, comes from our own experience.
The reason we do, what we do, is because we too have lost physiological functionality and cognitive efficiency at some point in our lives.
Lost them, felt the outcome and byproducts and vowed to never let ourselves go there again.
We're trying to give something back to society, to stand for something that we know is true, pure and works towards a positive betterment, providing an entity we hope, will be remembered as being about more than hierarchical status within an industry, red taped convention, sales, or revenue generated.
It doesn't matter if you are an elite gold medal Olympian, or an 80 year old with a sore knee, you get the same attention to detail with us.
Why Did The Business Start?
Well if I'm honest, this is what I live for, what saved my life many years ago, what my heart beats for and why I get up in the morning.
I had been around the fitness, motivational speaking and personal training industry for a number of years, working with the general public, servicemen and professional athletes.
Before that I was involved in natural bodybuilding.
I kept experiencing people approaching me who were either injured or in a constant pain cycle, asking for my help.
On top of that if any of my clients got injured I would have to refer them out, with a great deal (not all) coming back worse than when they started.
This prompted me to analyse the rehabilitation industry, what it was truly about and I became a soft tissue therapist at the highest level.
It was exactly what I wanted, exactly what I needed to provide the absolute best in hands on work and rehabilitation, alongside my previous experience and skill set.
This company was set up to offer you more than qualifications, more than just text book answers, it was designed to help you learn from the mistakes we have made with our own bodies and the successes we have seen in others.
