Keele University Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Clinic

Keele University Physiotherapy Clinic supports local people


A Student-led Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation Clinic staffed by Keele University experts and students is providing people in North Staffordshire with easy access to physiotherapy services.

The clinic, run out of the Sports Centre on the university campus, provides access to physiotherapy and healthcare for local people, while also giving students the chance to go hands-on in a real clinical setting to put their learning into practice.

For £18 a session, local people can come to the university clinic with no referral, membership, or connection to the university necessary, to receive treatment for any type of injury or musculoskeletal problems. The clinic is a training facility for students, but they are supervised at all times and patient care is always the number one priority.

Katie Brown, Lecturer in Physiotherapy and Clinic Director, said: “Having worked for our NHS for over 20 years I have always been saddened at how restricted treatment, and more importantly rehabilitation, can be. So often patients need more time, more input, hands on treatment and guidance that the NHS, understandably, cannot always achieve. 

“This clinic provides much needed experience for our students and by doing so we can provide much needed physiotherapy and rehabilitation to those who need it. We take some strain off our overloaded NHS. Our services are affordable, professional, accessible, and for as long as you need.

“We can do ultrasound therapy. We do massage. We do soft tissue techniques. We provide manual therapy, in terms of joint mobilisations. We treat sports injuries. There are lots of ways that our students can help get people back on the road to recovery.”
