Football club launches town’s first sports injury clinic

A sports injury clinic has been opened at a multi-million pound non-league football stadium.

Ryman League outfit AFC Sudbury has opened the clinic at its state-of-art Wardale Williams Stadium.

The clinic provides knowledgeable, personalised treatment of all sporting injuries and is headed by experienced sports injury therapists, Brian Swift. Now in his second season with the club Mr Swift obtained his FA Diploma in Sports Injuries whilst as Colchester United Football Club where he spent 13 seasons. He is vastly experienced in a number of sports including football, rugby, cricket, athletics, golf and basketball.

During Mr Swift’s varied career he has worked with many well-known professional and amateur sports people including weightlifter Zoe Newson who won a bronze medal at the 2012 Paralympics.

“We noticed there was nowhere in Sudbury which has a clinic dedicated solely to sporting injury and yet there is a huge sporting community in the town. We felt the club was the perfect place to set up the clinic and we look forward to providing this specialised service to the people of Sudbury and the surrounding area,” he said.

The new clinic is fully equipped with two treatment beds, medicine balls, weights and ultrasound equipment to help with rehabilitation and relief of a wide range of sporting injuries.
