- Bolton Sports Staff
- University of Bolton, Lancashire, United Kingdom
- We are lecturers and practicing professionals in Sports Science and Rehabilitation. Our undergraduate BSc/BA (Hons) Sports programmes are dynamic vocational degrees delivered with the physically active in mind, whether that is within the local community, the recreational or professional athlete. Our experience and expertise in professional sport and private industry allows the sports student to gain first hand and current knowledge in the field of sports medicine, exercise and training. We maintain strong links in industry, which provides our students opportunities for excellent work experience placements. Community events also allow students to voluntarily offer their skills to assist the competitor, which further strengthens the role and credibility that our sports students play within the health and exercise medicine spectrum. Our in-house Sports & Spinal Injuries Clinic and Athlete Development Centre also provide our means of actual practice and teaching where we welcome anyone wishing to have their injury managed, or fitness tested, advised and monitored to the highest standards using recent and researched methods to access our facility in Bolton One.

Wigan Athletic FC player on the Alter G
A premier league player from Wigan Athletic FC visited us today with a specific goal in mind - to get back running again. The Alter G anti-gravity treadmill allowed him to run at 20-30% of his body weight in order to gradually increase the ground reaction impact going through his lower limb. Great to be involved with the rehabilitation of a professional footballer of this level!
