The Endurance Physio

Mike James,  The Endurance Physio kindly provided an expert guest talk at the February 2020 Injury Rehab Network event and commented:

The Steroplast Injury Rehab Network is a superb and innovative idea that can only benefit therapists. To provide an opportunity for local multidisciplinary therapists to learn from each other and others, whilst networking and introducing people that can help each other is simpply groundbreaking. Having had the pleasure to attend a recent event, the positive discussion and energy in the room was palpable. Steroplast have truly hit it out of the park with this!


The Sports Therapy Association

Sports Therapy Association (STA) is setting a new gold standard in professional representation for sports therapists, sports injury therapists and soft tissue therapists across the United Kingdom. The STA have worked passionately to develop a truly independent and ethical association that is committed to raising standards across the industry and progressing opportunities for its valued members.

As practicing Sports Therapists, working in an increasingly challenging political climate, the STA identified the need for a new, dynamic, forward thinking and proactive professional association – a body that could voice the opinions of practicioners and lobby for positive change, crucially without the bias associated with direct links to training providers. The Sports Therapy Association work tirelessly on behalf of their members to fulfill their commitment to promote excellence in the field of Sports Therapy.

Sports Therapy Association members can benefit from exclusive discounts on Steroplast products from the Sterosport website.

After attendance at a recent Injury Rehab Network event, Gary Benson, STA Founder and Director said:

Having attended the recent seminar I can recommend these opportunities as a great way to meet and network with local industry professionals and earn valuable CPD points, a very welcoming team led by Andrew at Steroplast in their modern comfortable conference room made us feel very welcome with refreshments, a great speaker Mike James, AKA the Endurance Physio and a sample pack of their product range. Highly recommended 5*.
