Positive clinical outcomes for patients

Two leading clinics in their respective fields have joined forces to extend elite performance physiotherapy, strength and conditioning and analytics to people who have sustained life-changing limb injuries.

Pace Rehabilitation’s Bredbury clinic and Rehab 4 Performance have collaborated to support people’s pathway to recovery, mobility and freedom from pain following injury.

Rehab 4 Performance was founded by Matt Konopinski and Chris Morgan who have extensive experience at the highest level of professional football including Senior Physiotherapy roles at Liverpool, Rangers and Arsenal as well as working in the academies of Leeds United and Manchester City.

The clinic recently passed its CQC accreditation, the only private sports injury clinic in Liverpool to do so.

Pace Rehabilitation is the largest independent prosthetic service provider in the UK and employs more than 40 staff across three clinics in Amersham (Buckinghamshire),  Bredbury (Greater Manchester) and Glasgow.

Patients are mostly referred to the clinics by lawyers, case managers and insurers working with individuals who have sustained major trauma in a road traffic collision or workplace incident. Many patients have undergone amputations or serious injury of the upper or lower limbs.

“We are pleased to forge this strategic partnership with Rehab 4 Performance. We both share the same values in using new technology to support positive clinical outcomes for people who have sustained an injury. This partnership is a logical addition to our Lower Limb Trauma Clinic in Bredbury, which we launched last year, providing a consultant led, multidisciplinary approach to help people get their lives back on track following a catastrophic limb injury. “We’re looking forward to bringing the benefits of this new partnership to our patients during 2022 and beyond.”

“We feel that people who have been seriously injured should access the same high technology-based analytics and treatment as elite athletes are routinely used to. This collaboration brings high level gait analysis technology and a data-driven approach to enable the team at Pace to rapidly perform detailed forensic assessments, develop rehabilitation plans and then reassess their patient’s position to determine clinical outcomes. As we continue to develop our services, we feel it’s important to apply our skills, resources and knowledge to a wide client base. Active people who have sustained serious limb injuries or limb loss such as patients of Pace Rehabilitation can benefit tremendously from our performance-based approach.”
