Sport Rehabilitation is the latest exciting degree being offered through the School of Health Sciences at Liverpool Hope University.
This three year full-time course provides students with the theoretical knowledge and a broad range of applied skills, which are requirements of a sport rehabilitation professional.
Taught by experts and research-active academics, the course explores health and function in populations with injury, illness and disease, with a view to positively contributing to improving public health.
Alongside learning about exercise physiology, clinical musculoskeletal anatomy, motor control and sport biomechanics, exercise & sport performance, sport psychology, exercise prescription, and principles of rehabilitation and injury management, students will have the opportunity to complete clinical/vocational placements. This will count towards eligibility for membership into The British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers.
Health Sciences is a thriving and ever-expanding department at Liverpool Hope, with the School recently welcoming two new PhD students to undertake research in its state-of-the-art facilities.
Ben Ashworth and David Hawkes have joined the School of Health Sciences through scholarships funded by the Shoulder Rehabilitation Conference.
The pair are undertaking research into Shoulder and Upper Limbs, following discussions at the highly successful 2018 Shoulder Rehabilitation Conference that highlighted several knowledge gaps and challenges in the research field.
Particular areas of focus will include the methodologies applied for the evaluation of shoulder function, underlying mechanisms in complex shoulder conditions, and availability of information to support the development and implementation of evidence-based rehabilitation protocols.
Students studying Sport Rehabilitation will be invited to help with the organisation and running of various sessions during the Shoulder Rehabilition Conference 2019, which will follow the theme of Sporting Shoulder - Current Concepts and Future Directions.
