Specialty Cardiology

Why is Cardiology so important for sports teams?

Our cardiology offering has become more popular with clubs since Christian Eriksen recovered from his cardiac arrest during Euro 2020. The prevalence of cardiac disease or inherited heart conditions is an issue all sports teams need to be aware of. And there’s no difference in what sports or what team you play for on this subject. Research by the FA’s own cardiac screening programme has shown that one in 250 young footballers has a cardiac health concern.

What other services do we offer to support teams?

Our performance facilities are used by a variety of different sports teams, helping take players training to the next level by gaining access to biomechanical assessments, environmental chambers, exclusive body conditioning gym and physiological fitness testing. Find out more about our performance services.

The Football Clinic, a one-stop multidisciplinary clinic based at MIHP, offers an assessment and management plan all in one appointment. This collaborative approach is proven to be more beneficial to patient recovery and reduces the amount of time the athlete spends on the sidelines.

This one-stop shop can also include some minor treatments like PRP/image-guided injections, further testing using the MIHP’s force plates and 3D motion capture biomechanical assessments, and isokinetic strength testing.
