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.

We work with individuals and also support several clubs to get the best out of their elite performers. Our clients include Gillingham FC, Canterbury RFC, Kent Crusaders Basketball and gymnasts from the Jumpers Rebound Centre.
You may not want to run across America, as our former client Mimi Anderson does, but whatever your ambition, our first-class practitioners and extensive facilities will help you to achieve it.

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.

Sports therapy and rehabilitation
To get you back competing or playing again as soon as possible a rehab programme needs to be specific to your sport, to you as an individual and to the nature of your injury. The wealth of knowledge and experience of our lead clinicians will facilitate your recovery and reduce your chances of re-injury.
Pre-event, post-event and maintenance sports massage is available. It is used to facilitate recovery, increase blood flow and relax tight and sore tissues.
Pre-hab programmes are designed to protect athletes from injury. They work best when they are designed to protect a specific athlete for a particular sport. Obviously not all injuries can be avoided, but the effects of injuries can be minimised through specific conditioning. Programmes can be designed to enhance current training regimes in areas such as strength and flexibility and to correct internal factors, such as muscle imbalances, that can cause recurring injuries.
Free to University of Kent staff and students.
All treatments £10 (30 minutes) and £15 (60 minutes).
