Cambridge residents see a new centre of excellence
People in Cambridge are being offered elite level medical treatment by clinicians experience in delivery of care to elite level athletes, with the opening of Progress, an advanced sports medicine and physiotherapy centre in The Vision Park, Histon, on 3 January.
Professor Cathy Speed, has considerable expertise in management of athletes across a spectrum of amateur and professional sports. She will work alongside Kirk Russell, former head physiotherapist of the England cricket team, to provide health and performance treatments for all Cambridge residents, including elite athletes, people who need rehabilitation and those simply wishing to improve their health, fitness and lifestyle.
Kirk said: “I’m very excited to be working, hands-on, at Progress. There are very few centres in the UK open to the public that combine some of the most advanced technologies with the expertise of people who have worked in elite level sport. It will provide a unique, positive and holistic environment for people to develop their health, wellbeing and performance.”
Kirk Russell and Professor Speed will be supported by a highly experienced and recognised team of consultants and specialists, who will assist in the treatment and rehabilitation of patients suffering from common injuries, including muscle strains, hip and knee injuries and low back pain.
A full range of treatments and services will help improve people’s health and wellbeing, including physiotherapy, sports massage, Pilates, acupuncture, nutrition, psychology and sports and exercise medicine.
