Sports Injury Clinic Services

Our BSc (Hons) Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation students offer a variety of services and are trained to assess and treat patients presenting with musculoskeletal injuries caused either through participation in sport or the rigours of everyday life.

Our services are available to all University staff and students and can include:

  • Injury consultation and assessment
  • Mobilisations/manual therapy
  • Exercise prescription
  • Rehabilitation programmes
  • Injury prevention strategies
  • Electrotherapy
  • Sports massage

What's Involved?

At the first appointment, a detailed case history is taken, followed by a thorough examination. Where appropriate, you should wear suitable attire or bring a change of clothes as necessary (e.g. shorts for a lower limb injury). Please be aware that the services provided are for training, and therefore cases will frequently be discussed to assist learning.

What is a Sports Therapist?

Sports therapy is an aspect of healthcare that is specifically concerned with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability.

Sports therapy utilises the principles of sport and exercise sciences incorporating physiological and pathological processes to prepare the participant for training, competition and where applicable, work.
