Meet the Team

Our Experts include:

Mark Roe - Sports Physiotherapist, Sheffield


MarkMark founded the clinic due to an increase in word of mouth referrals for his services.  As an ex-professional footballer, Mark had to retire at 21 year old following several knee operations, and poor physiotherapy provision.  He not only knows what it’s like to play at the highest level, but also the psychology of an injured player, and the dedication needed to get back on the pitch.  His time spent on the sideline sparked a passion for rehabilitation of sports players and in particular junior footballers.  Since qualification as a chartered physiotherapist, Mark spent many years working as a senior physiotherapist in the NHS and in the private sector, and has worked with various sports clubs including Huddersfield Town FC. 

As well as his role as director of the Mark Roe Sports Physio Academy and current clinic work, Mark has written articles for the Sheffield Star Grass Roots Section, the Sheffield & Hallamshire F.A. website, the Sheffield & District Junior Sunday League and various other sports websites.  His client base includes several current and ex-world champions in many sports.  He also has good friendships in boxing and thai-boxing which brings him many high-profile clients and World champions.  Also on his CV is the Soccer Aid 2010 event where he worked with Robbie Williams and football sporting such as Zidane, Figo, Brian Lara, Joe Calzaghe.  In his free time, Mark previously worked as the physiotherapist for M1 Charity football team which was made up of soap stars and ex-professional footballers.  See testimonial page and the news page for more details.


Mark is based mainly at the Gleadless Clinic, with occasional sessions at our Hillsborough Clinic, Sheffield
