Areas of Work

Our overarching purpose is underpinned by our ability to build relationships that allow us to better connect to the sport, coaches and athletes.  

This enables us to achieve our core objectives: 

  • Physical Preparation

Physiotherapists work closely with the Strength & Conditioning coaches to profile athletes and gain insight into their strength and movement competencies. This is enhanced by an open environment that promotes integrated working.  

  • Injury management and risk minimisation 

Along with profiling, Physiotherapists will reflect on current and previous injury data in each sport. They will also reflect on an athlete’s daily monitoring enabling them to recognise predispositions to injury and prepare athletes to minimise risk.

Where injuries do occur, our Physiotherapists will clinically assess, diagnose and plan cutting-edge rehabilitation strategies to enable athletes to return to full performance. 

  • Performance Enhancement

Our Physiotherapists take a collaborative approach in understanding the critical physical determinants of a sport and what it takes to achieve the desired performance outcome.  

Our track record

Our Physiotherapy team have participated in major multisport games including, World, Olympic and Commonwealth Games. They are highly experienced clinicians, who understand what it takes to perform at the top level.  

All our Physiotherapists are members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and registered with the Health & Care Professions Council.  

 

Working holistically

Our Physiotherapists work together with all disciplines within the Sports Science and Medicine department, ensuring a holistic approach around each athlete.
