Recovering from any injury is frustrating. At our Sports Ready Clinic, by using state-of-the-art equipment and innovative techniques, we can aid your recovery time and offer advice on how to prevent future injuries.

How we can help you

High-quality research undertaken in the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences feeds into the work of the Sports Ready Clinic, which means our advice and support reflects the latest developments in the field.

Whether you are a professional sportsperson, a weekend athlete, or a complete beginner, our affordable clinic can help you to get the best out of your body.

We offer sports massage and prehabilitation services as well as sport-specific rehabilitation programmes that take you from initial injury or post-surgery right through to a return to sport. Following a comprehensive rehabilitation programme can increase your chance of returning to action more quickly and can also potentially reduce the risk of re-injury.

The clinic is staffed by final-year undergraduate students under the supervision of vastly experienced therapists.

Services

When attending the clinic, you receive an initial assessment where we discuss your medical history in detail and identify any current injuries. This is followed by a physical assessment and, if needed, an assessment of your training regime. We then develop a bespoke treatment/rehabilitation/injury prevention plan, ensuring your programme is right for you.
