Rehabilitation & Recovery Sessions

The Mardyke Arena UCC offers teams and players state-of-the art equipment for rehab and recovery sessions at our recently opened clinic.

the arena clinic is a new and exciting physiotherapy / rehabilitation clinic located at the Mardyke Arena University College Cork. Open to both members and non-members and now in its fourth month the arena clinic is proving to be an immediate success story. Staffed by Chartered Physiotherapists the arena clinic offers the best in facilities, equipment and currently offers recovery and rehabilitation programmes in its unique Hydrotherapy Pool and Cork’s first Anti-Gravity Treadmills.

the arena clinic Hydrotherapy Pool was imported from the United States and is very much a specialist medical rehabilitation pool. The Hydrotherapy suite also offers a cold plunge pool. To-date the hydrotherapy suite has been used by individual sports athletes, medical patients and teams for recovery sessions.

the arena clinic is the first location in Ireland to provide 2 Anti-Gravity Treadmills. Designed by NASA in the US for their astronaut programme the Anti-Gravity Treadmills have proven to be hugely successful worldwide in the rehabilitation of both sports persons and also medical conditions.

Munster Rugby’s Paul O’Connell and Simon Zebo both recently used the Arena’s 2 Anti-Gravity Treadmills as part of their injury recovery programme and we are proud to state that both players returned to play ahead of schedule and starred in Munster’s recent win over Harlequins Rugby in the Heineken Cup Quarter final.

The chartered physiotherapists at the arena clinic are approved by all main Health Insurers, allowing clients to get reimbursed for treatments when part of a client’s policy.

"I am very excited to see such state-of-the-artt facilities available now in Cork. I have never had access to anti-gravity treadmills before and the arena clinic has two."

Derval O'Rourke, three-time Olympian

The Hydrotherapy Pool is of great benefit to teams, clubs and individual athletes. It helps speed up recovery time from injuries and it is great for easing muscle pain and getting rid of niggling injuries. I recommend the use of it to everyone."
