Why study Sport Rehabilitation?

The MSc in Sport Rehabilitation seeks to educate students in the management and care of the injured athlete or those returning to physical activity following prolonged illness.

The degree provides students with the knowledge and understanding required to assess and manage musculoskeletal injuries from the acute stage through to return to sport or activity.

There is currently a high clinical demand for provision of highly skilled, autonomous and analytical therapists specialising within the field of prevention, assessment and management of sports related injuries.

This demand is from sportsmen and women, teams and clinicians currently working in the field of amateur and professional sport and this course aims to provide specialists in the field of Sport Rehabilitation to fulfil this demand.
