Kate Allatt and Dr Michael Lee
A Sheffield sports physiotherapist who is just one of six certified kinesio taping instructors in the UK has invested £100,000 in a new state-of-the-art clinic.
Sheffield Sports Medicine, established in 2009 by Dr Michael Lee, has relocated to Graves Health and Sports Centre in the Norton area of the city. The business will take on 20 new staff as a result of the move.
The firm’s new clinic was officially opened by Kate Allatt, who was rehabilitated by Dr Lee after she survived a huge brain stem stroke and subsequent locked-in syndrome in 2010.
Sheffield Sports Medicine, which specialises in Sports Medicine, Physiotherapy, Rehabilitation, Podiatry, Sports Psychology, Sports Massage and Sports Science, is moving to satisfy growing demand, with the investment in new premises and staff expected to drive performance and help further enhance the quality of the clinic’s services.
Dr Lee, whose specialisms include Kinesio Taping, Strength and Conditioning, Injection Therapy, Diagnostic Ultrasound Scanning and Acupuncture, said: “It was an honour to have Kate come ‘home’ and officially open our new clinic.
“There’s something extremely poignant about Kate returning to open our new premises. This new clinic will help us take a giant leap forward into a new era, and further enhance the award-winning service which we offer to clients.
“It’s a significant investment for a business of our size but a necessary one, too. This is a fantastic opportunity to display and develop our forward-thinking mentality to execute life-changing treatments to all of the patients that we meet. We’re so excited about what the future holds.”
