Hydrotherapy Suite

The Hydrotherapy Suite uses the latest aquatic therapies and equipment to assist athletes, sports teams and private clients with rehabilitation and recovery from exercise. The Hydrotherapy Suite consists of three main areas:

  • An underwater treadmill - used to assist with rehabilitation from injury by reducing bodyweight and pressure on joints. It also comes with video analysis to help correct movement patterns.
  • Contrast Bathing Pools - the hot and cold bathing pools can be used to aid in muscle repair and to increase recovery time after intense training.
  • Variable depth pool - this pool has controllable water depth, temperature and buoyancy levels to create an advanced training environment. The entire pool floor is fully height-adjustable to allow for safe entry to the water with no steps or ladders.

The suite is also used for aquatic physiotherapy which can help relieve pain, promote relaxation, mobilise joints, strengthen muscles, develop balance and co-ordination and improve general fitness.

Rehabilitation Gym

The Rehabilitation Gym is a combined treatment and functional area and features a range of testing and strengthening equipment to support the screening, diagnosis and treatment of injuries. Overlooking the full-size indoor pitch, both professional athletes and private clients can be treated individually or as part of a group.

The main features of the Rehabilitation Gym include:

  • Six therapy beds - used by our specialist physiotherapists to perform manual therapy, massage, taping and acupuncture, as well as electrotherapies which we have available.
  • Functional movement screens and Y-balance to detect movement dysfunction in patients.
  • 40" LCD TV - used to replay videos of patients' movement patterns and assist with corrective exercises.
  • Large gym area including boxes, bungees, TRX, Bosu and bands used for functional rehabilitation and to form correct movement patterns.
  • Pilates area

It is also used extensively with our PFA Residential Rehabilitation Scheme helping to support players in their road to recovery from injury.

60-Metre Sprint Lanes

We have three 60-metre sprint lanes here at Perform which play an integral part in our performance training, rehabilitation,  performance testing and biomechanical analysis. The track allows us to work on plyometric training with our athletes, with a focus on  linear speed acceleration drills, maximal velocity training and technique drills often combined with hurdles, bungees, run rockets or parachutes.

The sprint lanes are also used as part of our education programme for schools and are open to use by sports teams, athletes and individuals looking to improve their speed and/or athletic performance.
