Hey there, I’m Omkr Samant, a Physiotherapist dedicated to blending my passion for sports with the art and science of physiotherapy. My journey began in 2015 when I embarked on a Bachelor’s in Physiotherapy at the Pravara Institute of Medical Sciences, India. Following my graduation, I immersed myself in the dynamic world of sports medicine and musculoskeletal care, gaining valuable experience at a private MSK clinic.
In pursuit of enhancing my knowledge and skills, I pursued a Master’s degree in Sports and Exercise Medicine at Leeds Beckett University in 2021. Alongside academic endeavours, I am proudly registered with The Health and Care Professions Council and Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, ensuring a commitment to excellence in practice.
My journey as a Physiotherapist has been rich with diverse experiences. I had the honour of serving as a Physiotherapist for the London Marathon in 2023, an electrifying event that challenged and enriched my understanding of athletes’ needs and performance optimization.
