Most of us will benefit from sports rehabilitation treatment at various times in our lives. It can help us recover from a sudden injury, easing pain and preventing the injury from happening again. Or it might provide relief from long term musculoskeletal conditions such as back and neck pain as well as arthritis. However it can be very expensive to use a private therapist and NHS waiting lists can mean long delays in getting the treatment you need.

In fact, waiting is the worst thing you can do when treating a sports injury. The sooner you see a specialist and start a treatment regime, the faster you will heal, knocking weeks or even months off your recovery.

Which is why we are delighted to offer the Sports Injury Clinic, a unique clinic open to the public for just £10 per visit. University of Salford staff, students and alumni are welcome to access the service free of charge.

Our response to COVID-19

Students and staff at the University of Salford are adapting services to continue to provide support to the local community during the coronavirus lockdown.

The Sports Injury, Exercise and Rehabilitation Clinic has now opened its doors online to operate a free virtual service.

People with an injury or other musculoskeletal complaint can email salfordsportsinjuryclinic@salford.ac.uk for an appointment.

Services

Musculoskeletal screening and postural assessment

We can assess aspects such as muscle length and posture. For example, postural screening can identify any areas that will benefit from remedial work and education. This not only minimises the risk of future injuries but can also lead to improved performance and health.

Injury prevention and performance enhancement programmes

We provide general and specific programmes to ensure you are physically prepared for all the work and recreational tasks you undertake.

Exercise programmes

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.

Sports massage

Soft tissue treatment such as massage can help you overcome an injury and can also be used as a preventative measure.

Health education

We provide wide-ranging education on all aspects of health, including lifestyle, recreational exercise, posture and the safe and effective performance of work and recreational tasks.

"The virtual clinic was very easy to access and I was able to get an appointment straight away. The online video appointment was straightforward to log into and the assessment of my injury was thorough.  I was given an excellent explanation of my injury along with specific exercises for rehabilitation and received a follow up email a few to check on my progress." - Ruth Smith
