More Information

Pitch side first aid incorporates immediate trauma care and sports injury management by professionally registered physical therapists. These skilled practitioners are all strictly regulated by their associated governing bodies and therefore have full professional indemnity insurance. Sports doctors can also be supplied upon request.

Physio Science understands the multifaceted need for highly qualified professionals to cover sporting events. Not only does it offer invaluable medical support for players, it also provides reassurances for event organisers, coaches and parents. In addition to this, the performance benefits can be invaluable to individual players and teams, providing professional level service and increasing the potential to perform optimally.

Sport science

Physio Science can provide professional sport science services to any organisation.  We have vast experience working within high performance sport and this gives us the expertise to create and deliver bespoke performance testing and physical screening.

Performance Testing

Performance testing

Performance testing is ideal for teams requiring objective physical assessments or monitoring, which can highlight the specific training needs of individuals and teams. Using our qualified sport scientists, we can assess:

  • Acceleration
  • Max Speed
  • Agility
  • Jumps
  • Height and Weight
  • Trunk Capacity
  • Muscle Endurance Capacity
  • Aerobic Fitness
  • Repeated Speed Ability

Following all testing, we produce reports for the individual athlete and squad/age group averages. As an additional service, we can also provide individualised conditioning programmes based on the results.

Physical Screening

Physical screening

Physio Science can offer a range of assessment tools for athletes, both professional and amateur. Using a range of clinically evidenced assessment tools, we can offer:

  • Individual screening process to target dysfunctions and asymmetries
  • Functional movement testing
  • Comprehensive report
  • Recommendations and tailored prehabilitation programmes

This service is often used by organisations that wish to assess key athletes/pupils, such as those on sports scholarships, or those who have a history of undiagnosed recurring sports related injuries.

Triage Physio Clinics

Triage physio clinics

If you are looking to run performance testing or screening days, we can arrange therapists to provide open or appointment focussed clinics, offering musculoskeletal assessments. These clinics are often used where athletes are carrying injuries or require quick assessments to clear them to complete the testing.

We have a large team of therapist that can setup temporary clinics and provide a professional and efficient physio service. This service is hugely beneficial when you are dealing with large numbers.

We can also provide sport massage practitioners for treatment and performance benefits.
