Sports injury clinic

Our on-site, fully equipped Sports Injury Clinic offers clinical assessments, treatment and rehabilitation for both Herts students and staff.

Do you suffer with a sports injury or pain which affects your daily life? We can help to identify the cause and then treat it accordingly to return you to your sport or activity in the most effective way.

How we work

The appointments are administered by our final year BSc (Hons) Sports Therapy students, many of whom have already worked alongside professional athletes on placement.

The sessions are fully supervised by our Clinic Manager, a graduate Sports Therapist with a wealth of experience in clinical practice.

What can we help with?

  • Sports injuries
  • Neck and back pain
  • Muscle/ligament injuries
  • Joint pain
  • Rehabilitation after orthopaedic surgery
  • Overuse injuries

How do we achieve this?

We can provide you with the following services:

  • Examination and assessment of your injury
  • Sports massage
  • Tailored and progressive rehabilitation programmes
  • Manual therapy/joint mobilisations
  • Taping and strapping
  • Electrotherapy
  • Education and advice on injury prevention

What can you expect from your appointment?

We will initially take a detailed case history, followed by a clinical assessment. Shorts or a vest top may be required for this to allow a full examination of the region to take place.

Based on our findings, we will discuss with you a management plan specific to your needs. Treatment and rehabilitation will be advised as appropriate and you may require follow-up appointments to further your recovery. Each appointment is scheduled for 1 hour.

We are located on the College Lane campus in 1C114 (on the first floor within the Main Building).
