Dr Michael Lee boasts an impressive range of qualifications. His interest in sports started when he gained a rugby union sports scholarship and competed at national level. He has a BSc (Hons) degree in Sport & Exercise Science from Loughborough University where he also represented the prestigious university rugby team. Michael understands the demands of training at an elite level and the heartache of injury when his promising career was cut short due to a serious knee injury.  This resulted in  pursuing an MSc in Physiotherapy to understand injury and achieve Chartered Physiotherapy Status. His interest in how the brain and body interact continued when he completed an MSc in Musculoskeletal Medicine, MSc in Sports Medicine and MSc in Psychology. 

During an illustrious academic and clinical career, Michael's philosophy to assessment and treatment evolved and is quite simple. Treating the area of injury is obvious, however addressing the cause of the injury is paramount to reducing the risk of injury recurrence and eliminating pain. This led Michael to study a Post Graduate Diploma in Acupuncture and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy. The amalgamation of expert knowledge linked the theories of how fascia (connective tissue), biomechanics of joint movement and how the organs closely interact with the nervous system to optimise human movement. He completed the puzzle of how to enhance and accelerate the body's performance through Sports Medicine, Chinese Medicine & Psychology.

Currently Michael teaches his philosophy of assessment and treatment nationally and internationally. He is also 1 of 6 Certified Kinesio Taping Instructors in the UK, and a Accredited Strength & Conditioning Specialist in the USA and UK. Fortnightly he addresses the general public when he appears on BBC Radio Sheffield as an Injury and Performance Expert. His wealth of clinical knowledge has led him to consult at the elite end of sport, ranging from professional triathletes, international rugby and Premier League football. Professional Athletes and World renown Celebrities travel from all over the world to experience his life changing treatment that eliminates pain and optimises the human body. This could only be possible with his enthusiasm and excellence by applying academia into practice which is then integrated into treatments that result in outstanding patient outcomes.
