Sports Therapy Clinics

The University’s popular sports therapy clinics provide affordable sports therapy services in a student-led environment closely supervised by our sports therapy lecturing team.

Our BSc (Hons) Sports Therapy 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. There is a wide range of patient types who attend the clinic including professional athletes, university-level athletes and the general public.

Sports Therapy services include:

  • Massage.
  • Electrotherapy.
  • Mobilisations/manual therapy.
  • Exercise prescription.
  • Rehabilitation programmes.
  • Injury prevention strategies.

The University has two sports therapy clinics, each with a full range of professional equipment including ultra-sound/electrotherapy equipment and a rehabilitation area including use of a fully equipped gym. 

The clinic is open to members of the public as well as students and staff at UCB.

The Sports Therapy Department offers sports therapy and strength and conditioning support to Student Guild sports teams. Sports therapy support in the form of injury assessment, treatment and rehabilitation services at training, matches and at the University's sports injury clinic, is provided.

Strength and conditioning support is in the form of pre-season screening and fitness testing, individual and team programming, and specific strength and conditioning coaching sessions.
