HARLOW RUGBY CLUB in association with SV SPORTS THERAPY are delighted to announce the July 2018 opening of a Sports Therapy Clinic at Harlow Rugby Club, Latton Park, Howard Way, Harlow, Essex CM20 3FD.
Under the supervision of Sophie Vowden of SV Sports Therapy the clinic will provide senior squad players with a facility where their injuries can be thoroughly examined, assessed, diagnosed and treated. The SV therapists will liaise regularly with Michael Weston, Strength & Conditioning Hub Manager, regarding strengthening exercises and rehabilitation, and will be present at all 1st XV matches, providing taping and pre/ post-match sports massage.
A referral service will also be available to help players with any external medical help required i.e. writing letters to GPs for X-rays, MRI scans, liaising with orthopaedic consultants to ensure players have the best possible care.
All sessions are by appointment only.
“This is a hugely exciting development to aid the growth of our club, as the clinic will be the centre of sports therapy excellence and will help us towards achieving a number of the club’s strategic objectives. We are lucky to have partnered with someone as well qualified as Sophie Vowden.”
Paul Tucker (Tux) | Harlow R.U.F.C. Chair of Rugby
The Sports Therapy Clinic at Harlow Rugby Club will also be open to private clients six days per week, from morning to evening, offering sports therapy and sports massage. Sports Therapy involves a detailed examination and diagnosis of an injury, then, by using a variety of treatments, the therapist helps the client become pain-free as quickly as possible. Sports Massage is an essential treatment to help relieve muscular aches and pains. SV therapists use a variety of sports massage techniques to help restore muscles and fascia (connective tissue), to help lengthen and increase the flexibility in muscles and improve blood circulation.
Discounted rates to Harlow R.U.F.C. members will be available on production of a valid Membership Card. To book an appointment, please contact Sophie on 07904 116757
