Sports Injury Clinic

Musculoskeletal assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation.

Contact Details

The University of Salford and the Sport Rehabilitation Team have operated clinical services for over 20 years, supporting the local community, British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) athletes from the university, and professional and semi-professional athletes. 

This is a student-led clinic where staff supervise students in their learning; this is akin to what you would see in teaching hospitals nationwide and is also commonplace in professional sports. 

We can offer an injury assessment, give guidance around your injury issue, help manage it, and offer treatment and exercise rehabilitation.

The work we do here is evidence-based, including the utilisation of modern technology to help inform our decision-making process and give you the best chance of recovery.


Musculoskeletal injury assessment

We can assess your injury using assessment techniques and technology detailed above. This will include a thorough history, physical assessment, and then discussion around the next steps. 

Exercise rehabilitation programmes and on-site rehabilitation

Once you have been assessed, we can help you with a full range of exercise programmes ranging from basic ones designed to improve cardiovascular fitness and muscular strength, to targeted strength and endurance plans and work/sport-specific performance enhancement. This will be directed by the students with demonstration in our onsite gym, but you will also have access to follow-up information via our rehab guru service detailing your program with videos and pictures of your exercises. 

This can also be booked as an intense on-site rehabilitation program over four days of two two-hour blocks each day. 

Injury prevention and performance enhancement programmes

We provide specific programmes to ensure you are physically prepared for all the work and recreational tasks you undertake. If you’re an athlete, this could be training to compete; if you’re a soldier, then it could be training for special forces selection or deployment, or just general preparation for work or your lifestyle.

We can assess and profile you even in the absence of injury, providing information around aspects of your physical profile you may need to address to prevent potential future injury.
