Want to become a physiotherapist?

physiotherapist

A sports physiotherapist is a highly sought-after role, directly overseeing the treatment of musculoskeletal sports injuries and rehabilitation of elite athletes. 

Physiotherapy presents an opportunity to stay in the game or work in another sporting environment.

Becoming a physiotherapist is a rewarding line of work, whether you are working with elite performers to get them back to the top of their game or helping an individual get back to basic fitness, physiotherapy can be extremely satisfying.

The PFA Charity has partnered with the University of Salford and York St John University for several years and provides exclusive access for players along with enhanced funding up to 75% of course fees.
