Course content

Refine your expertise so that you can help athletes to recover from injury and also maintain the health of the general public. This course will provide you with the range of skills required to respond to a growing number of challenging developments within sport, such as dealing with an increasingly ageing population wanting to be physically active.

You will understand the process of an injury audit to identify risk factors and learn how to implement an evidence-based treatment plan that minimises the chance of re-injury. You will study rehabilitation strategies and return to play assessments, and you will explore the emergent field of prehabilitation in order to prevent as well as treat injuries. You will gain practical experience of assessing, treating and supporting individuals from a variety of sporting disciplines, enabling you to accurately evaluate and attend to injuries, as well as help clients avoid future physical discomfort and damage.

Using our modern rehabilitation labs and extensive sporting facilities, you will develop the ability and confidence to manage an individual's physical wellness, no matter their ability or age.
