The Academy’s Exercise Medicine department provides a level of services usually reserved for professional sport, to athletes of all levels.
TRADITIONAL PHYSIOTHERAPY PRACTICE IS SUBOPTIMAL AT BEST - AND INEFFECTIVE AT WORST
The model of seeing a practitioner for assessment, being given a few exercises to complete at home without guidance (which you often forget to do), then coming back next month and doing the same again is not the optimal injury rehabilitation model.
If it was, that’s what would happen in professional sports. But it’s not.
Professional organisations take an integrated rehab approach, with medical professionals working alongside sports and strength coaches to adapt training to optimise the athlete’s return to play.
HOW OUR REHABILITATION MODEL WORKS
STEP 1:Book for a one on one assessment with our one of our practitioners.( £45 for 45 minute consultation).
STEP 2: Your practitioner will recommend an individualised rehabilitation route for you:
Route 1: Session to session treatment (£45 per session, 30 minutes) with home rehabilitation program delivered and coached on our training app.
Route 2: All inclusive Rehabilitation Program (£45 per week), including:
- Weekly 1:1 Physiotherapy or sports massage session
- Individualised training program to not only work on your injury, but allow you to continue to train other body parts and sports competencies around the injury.
- Unlimited training sessions at our facility during operating hours, all supervised by a strength and conditioning coach.
- Access to our recovery tools and treatments as required.
