Our Sport Rehabilitation course provides you with the theoretical knowledge and a broad range of applied skills required for undertaking the role of a sport rehabilitation professional. You will learn to improve health and function in populations with injury, illness and disease and to positively contribute to improving public health. Throughout the course you will be taught by experts and research-active academics with a particular focus on practical skills and small group practical sessions.
Studying Sport Rehabilitation at Liverpool Hope University gives you an in-depth understanding of current theories and principles in sport injuries including:
- exercise physiology
- clinical musculoskeletal anatomy
- motor control and sport biomechanics
- exercise & sport performance
- sport psychology
- exercise prescription,
- principles of rehabilitation and injury management.
Furthermore, the course will equip you with a comprehensive range of laboratory measurement skills to enhance your learning experience in the practical aspects of sport rehabilitation.
The University will organise placements in a variety of settings (e.g. sports injury and physiotherapy clinics, sports clubs, fitness centres, rehabilitation centres, physical activity and health promotion units) to provide you with a better degree by means of experience, skills, industry knowledge and professional network. You are also encouraged to identify and organise some voluntary work placements yourself. As a new programme, the University will be eagerly exploring relevant accreditation pathways for the course.

In your second year, will you build on your foundational knowledge to study motor control, biomechanics of sports performance, training principles, and sports nutrition with a view of understanding main underlying the mechanisms in common sport injuries. You will then gain further understanding of how this multidisciplinary knowledge can be used for designing and developing effective and evidence-based exercise and rehabilitation programmes. In this year, you will advance in gaining clinical skills by means of placements and further understanding of research methods applied to the field of sport science, sport rehabilitation and sport injuries.
In your final year, you will be introduced to more advanced clinical skills in musculoskeletal assessment, principles of exercise and sport rehabilitation, and common sport injury treatment modalities such as sports massage and application of strength and conditioning protocols.
