THE WANDERERS SPORTS MEDICAL CENTRE
Enhance your athletic performance
The Wanderers Sports Medical Centre (WSMC) is a comprehensive sports medicine hub housing top medical professionals that serve the needs of the Gauteng sporting community. The centre is housed at Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg where professional, amateur and school athletes from all sporting disciplines have access to top exercise facilities and a range of medical services.
WHAT WE OFFER
Head-to-toe medical care for top athletes
The Wanderers Sports Medical Centre is home to a range of medical professionals who specialise in athlete conditioning and testing, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of sport-related injuries.
THE NEED FOR WSMC
We identified a massive gap in physiological wellbeing and healthcare between the professional sporting set-ups e.g. the Highveld Lions and the junior/school high performance teams. For those without access to professional help, this translates into a lack of immediate healthcare or worse, misdiagnoses of sports injuries.
The WSMC offers a holistic approach that’s needed to develop all round sporting individuals. This means that athletes will be able to receive a variety of assessments and treatments.
- Medical screening from Sports Physicians
- Musculoskeletal assessments, treatment and rehabilitation protocols from Physiotherapists
- Assessments and treatments from Homeopaths and Chiropractors
- Strength and conditioning from Personal Trainers
- End-phase rehabilitation from Biokineticists
- Visual assessment and training from the Sports Vision Optometrists
- Nutritional education from Dieticians
- Performance enhancement from Clinical Sports Psychologists
- Foot health and assessments from Podiatrists
- Bracing from Orthotists and Prothetists
- Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber
- Local Cryotherapy – Liquid Nitrogen
