The Therapy Clinic

The Therapy Clinic is located in the Sport and Recreation Centre at Coventry University, operating under the umbrella of Coventry University. We specialise in musculoskeletal and sports injuries. Our physiotherapist, Steve Alvey, is registered with the following insurance companies so can provide post-operative rehabilitation through their insurance schemes: Police Mutual, Aviva, PruHealth, Simply Health and BUPA.

Benefits include:

  • Open to staff, students and all members of the community
  • Discounted rates for members of Coventry University Sports Centre
  • Registered with all leading health insurance providers
  • Appointments available Monday to Friday

Being situated in the Sport and Recreation Centre means that the Therapy Clinic has full access to a fitness suite housing state-of-the-art Cybex equipment alongside a substantial free weight section. In the fitness suite we have a team of exercise professionals which can help with any physiotherapy rehabilitation programme and we offer a rolling month-by-month contract at a reduced rate for physiotherapy patients. We also have access to a fitness studio and sports halls to complete the rehabilitation package.

It is rare to find a physiotherapy clinic with such high quality facilities as these, however, these facilities are invaluable in providing an exceptional service which aims to meet patient goals – whether it be return to sport or simply carrying out day-to day-or occupational tasks.

Available treatments include:

Manual Therapy Sports Massage Acupuncture Electro-Acupuncture Ultrasound
Exercise Therapy Sports Rehabilitation Post-Operative Rehabilitation TENS, interferrential  

Our philosophy is simple: The right diagnosis, first time, every time! 

It is our belief that if the diagnosis is correct, then naturally the treatment will be directed at the cause of your symptoms, rather than just treating the symptoms.

We aim to provide a service that exudes excellence and we believe in an honest approach. As such you will always get the truth about your diagnosis, symptoms and prognosis and will be provided with a high quality treatment and rehabilitation plan to get you back on track.
