For many people, the athletes of our society are people to aspire to. Cheering for them, supporting the team they play for or following them on social media, there are many ways to get involved with sporting events.
One way to get up close to all the action is by working alongside these incredible athletes. You may all know about David Beckham, but he’ll tell you about the sports rehabilitation clinics that helped him overcome injuries throughout his footballing career. It is often the people who work in the background alongside these athletes that help them on their path to greatness.
The University of Bolton’s Sports Rehabilitation with Foundation Year degree offers industry-approved training, making you ready for a career working with sportsmen and women as well as active members of the public.
The foundation year offers an excellent grounding in the fundamentals of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics alongside study skills development, and it is designed to prepare you for degree-level study.
Focusing on equipping you with hands-on practical experience teamed with an invaluable grounding in theory, the University will guide you as you explore musculoskeletal injury prevention screening, specific exercise therapy, and clinical treatment skills.
Extensive practical and laboratory work will help to cement your understanding of human anatomy, the biomechanics and physiology of the human body, and the pathology of injury and dysfunction. This course is based within the £31 million Bolton One building which hosts excellent facilities.
The course offers an exciting array of placement opportunities which have previously included professional sports teams, private clinics and the Ministry of Defence.
You will be safe in the knowledge that as a graduate, you’ll be eligible to practice as a registered Graduate Sport Rehabilitator (GSR), rehabilitating athletes from injury.
