With this Sports Injury Management course from Leeds Beckett University  you will understand the process of an injury audit to identify risk factors and learn how to implement an evidence-based treatment plan that minimises the chance of re-injury.

You will study rehabilitation strategies and return to play assessments, and you will explore the emergent field of prehabilitation in order to prevent as well as treat injuries. You will gain practical experience of assessing, treating and supporting individuals from a variety of sporting disciplines, enabling you to accurately evaluate and attend to injuries, as well as help clients avoid future physical discomfort and damage.
