Meet the Clinical Team
MARK CONWAY (CLINICAL DIRECTOR)
Clinical Director, Physiotherapist and Ergonomist
My name is Mark Conway and I am the owner of CMK Therapy. I have been a Physiotherapist and Ergonomist for 18 years and, following a number of years working in the NHS, at private clinics, directly with companies and with professional sports teams, I took the decision to start my own private clinic, CMK Therapy, in 2008.
My aim was to build a private practice with a first class service, focusing on returning people to their full potential. The body is an amazing object and the days of saying “Rest and Take Painkillers” should be a thing of the past.
I am pleased to say I have a fantastic team of professionals working with me and a truly efficient and friendly admin team to back us up. I truly believe we provide the number one Physiotherapy service in the area.
I enjoy treating work-related injuries, especially office workers, and those in the 40-65 age bracket who are starting to get what I call “worn-out injuries” like dodgy knees, creaking backs and stiff joints.
In my fifties now and a life-long sportsman, I know how important it is to keep ourselves flexible and mobile to ensure a more pain-free and enjoyable life.
Your body is for life and we need to keep you moving.
