Important Information on our Physiotherapy Arrangement

Dear Parents / Guardians and Gymnasts,

Newcastle sports injury clinic have teamed up with the City of Newcastle Gymnastics Academy to ensure that all gymnasts receive the very best level of physiotherapy care. We want all gymnasts to minimise the risk of injury and if they are unlucky enough to pick up an injury, we aim to return them to training and competition as soon as possible.

Who we are?

We have been established for over 15 years and have provided physiotherapy support to elite athletes from a wide array of sports. We currently manage the physiotherapy services for Newcastle and Northumbria Universities elite sport programmes. We have also worked with Dance City for a number of years. Many of our therapists have also competed at the highest level therefore we can guarantee that we will understand your desire to return to competition as soon as possible. Our therapists are committed to providing a diagnosis and then working with the gymnast to ensure they return to full competition. When appropriate, we will work with coaches to ensure that any injuries are rehabilitated appropriately and all coaches are informed about an appropriate return to training and competition.
