Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation

What is sports therapy and rehabilitation?

During a Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation appointment, we help people suffering from a musculoskeletal pain, injury, or condition. For individuals of all ages, from a sporting or non-sporting background.

We can help with a range of common problems, including:  

  • Acute or chronic pain 
  • Lower back pain
  • Neck and shoulder pain or restrictions
  • Hip, knee and ankle pain or restrictions
  • Muscle strains and ligament sprains
  • Posture analysis and improvement
  • Pre- and post-surgery rehabilitation

How do the pre-qualified appointments work?

A pair of our final year Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation students will work with you to recover from a current injury, reduce pain and prevent future injury using personalised exercise, movement, and therapeutic treatments under supervision from a fully qualified member of staff.

Our clients

Along with many individuals, we support several clubs to get the best out of their elite performers. Including Gillingham FC, Ebbsfleet United FC, Canterbury RFC, Kent Crusaders Basketball and gymnasts from the Jumpers Rebound Centre.          

Alter-G treadmill

Our Alter-G (Anti-Gravity Treadmill) uses NASA Differential Air Pressure technology to adjust the weight-bearing load, which means you can rehabilitate a specific injury with low-impact and pain-free movement. 

Appointments for the Alter-G can be booked online or by contacting the clinic staff.

"I am grateful for the support of staff and the great facilities; using the Alter-G has allowed me to walk and exercise."

We supported James Barter with his Friedreich's ataxia
