UCLan Physio Clinic

The UCLan Injury & Rehabilitation Clinic is staffed by experienced Senior Chartered and HPC registered Physiotherapists who are dedicated to providing people with a positive experience of healthcare.

The team has worked with a wide variety of clubs and individuals in various sports and codes.

Senior Physiotherapist Greg Littler recently spent time with staff at Lancaster Royal Grammar School.

Evan Stewart, Director of Rugby at LRGS, said: "We were keen to develop links with UCLan, and specifically with the Physiotherapy Clinic, as we are particularly keen to develop our medical management of pupils on the field of play.

"Greg was able to take this on board and discuss our needs, creating useful staff training sessions and improving our on-field management. All staff were impressed with Greg's knowledge and skills and relating them to the coach's role."

In addition to treating external clients, the Clinic is also used by UCLan staff and students. Lecturer Dr Brigit Ramsingh recently required treatment after developing back problems from sitting all day at a desk.

She commented: "Verity (Scholes) has been incredibly helpful at relieving some of the tension and pain, giving advice on what I can do when outside the clinic, as well as setting some goals toward rehabilitation so that I can get back to being fit again.

"The location of the clinic is convenient for those who work on campus, as it is nice to be able to fit in a massage appointment during the day."
