Sports Therapy Degree Students Deliver Treatments at On-Site Injury Clinic

May 05 2022

Higher Education Sports Therapy degree students receive hands-on experience at the Lincoln College Sports Injury Clinic.

The in-house Clinic, based in Deans Sports and Leisure, offers a full range of occupational and injury-related rehabilitation services.  

It is staffed by second year FdSc Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation students under the supervision of a clinical member of academic staff. 

The Clinic is open and free to all Lincoln College staff and students, giving the sports therapy students access to real clients to gain experience in the field alongside their academic studies. 

The trainee students provide the full service – from assessment and consultation, treatment, and rehabilitation where needed, including sport massage to alleviate general tightness. 

Clients who come to the clinic often include those suffering from sporting and occupational injuries, or those who wish to enhance their recovery from training sessions and improve their overall physical performance.  

Gill Hodgson, Lincoln College Policing lecturer who visited the Clinic, said: “I was hoping to book an appointment to have someone give me some stretches to do on my recent dodgy hip. I did not expect the brilliant service of being seen there and then by one of the degree students who worked on the trigger points and released the problem. Feeling so much better already. I highly recommend it if you’re suffering with pain or discomfort.” 

Paul Campbell, Sport and Exercise Science Lecturer, added: “I am currently pain free in shoulder and lower back after visiting the students last week. Not only do they have excellent hands on skills, they are able to make good informed decisions around their treatments. They explained exactly what they were doing throughout and why.” 

Stuart Reddington, Head of Sport and Service Sector at Lincoln College, said: “We know from employers who have employed our graduates that it is these real life experiences, alongside their academic studies, that set them apart from graduates at other institutions. 

“By running the Sports Injury Clinic our students have access to develop their skills and confidence, enabling them to be ready for the workplace after graduation.” 

The Sports Injury Clinic runs on Fridays 12:30-3:30pm. The average length of an appointment is around 30-45 minutes. Staff and students who wish to have an appointment can email to get booked in.
