Sports Rehabilitation

Sport Rehabilitators help people suffering from pain, injury or illness involving the musculoskeletal system recover to their full level of function. They help people of all ages to maintain their health and fitness, recover from and prevent injury and reduce pain using exercise, biomechanical analysis, movement and manual based therapeutic interventions. They use clinical reasoning to tailor a recovery plan to return you to physical activity, and reduce pain using exercise, movement and manual based therapeutic interventions such as massage, mobilisations/manipulations, and electrotherapy modalities.

As they hold a strong belief and interest in public health, Sports Rehabilitators are more than capable of prescribing exercise to suit the needs of you, ensuring your best outcomes and goals are achieved. They are capable of leading exercise classes for a wide range of populations, including people living with chronic conditions such as MS, Parkinson’s and Stroke patients.

In addition to their role in public health, Sport Rehabilitators also work with athletic populations to aid in recovery and achieve sporting goals. Part of the treatments/interventions will include precise biomechanical analysis, fitness testing/screening, and advanced strength and conditioning tailored to your sport and lifestyle. Sports Rehabilitators have the skills and knowledge to break down critical components of your performance and implement targeted strategies to help you excel within them.

Our Sports Rehabilitator Josh has had a range of experiences to apply all these skills. Some of these experiences include working with GB Sport, Championship Rugby, and Championship Football. Working at a high level within sport has helped Josh consolidate the skills highlighted above, of which will be used as part of your comprehensive assessment and treatment package!


BASRaT – Sport Rehabilitators Professional Body

In 1994 the university of St Mary’s Twickenham became the founding institute of sports rehabilitation. The creation of BASRaT started in 1997 when the first generation of sports rehabilitators graduated. BASRaT stands for the British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers. BASRaT are the UK regulator for sports rehabilitators and has been approved as an accredited register by the Professional Standards Authority. It is an organisation which currently acts as our regulating body (like HCPC) and also Sport Rehabilitators professional body.

In 2013 BASRaT joined the Professional Standards Authority. One of the reasons this is important is because it meant as a single profession, Sport Rehabilitators could practice on the public. This means that GP’s could refer patients to clinics only run by Sports Rehabilitators.
