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 supervised by fully qualified and insured graduate sports therapists, with a wealth of experience in clinical practice and professional sport.

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.
Where do you find us?
We are located on the de Havilland campus in S127 (on the first floor of the Institute of Sport). Once you have reached the first floor, please wait in the seating area located just through the double doors.
The Sports Injury Clinic offers appointments on weekdays during term time (Semester A and B only).
The Sports Injury Clinic provides an invaluable and realistic learning environment for our students. Therefore, we are proud to offer this specialist service at a very low rate (UH staff: £10, UH students: £5). Our prices are set to purely cover consumable costs.
