FASIC Sport & Exercise Medicine Clinic

Our team of expert sports and musculoskeletal specialists will work with you to prevent, diagnose, treat and manage your injury, restoring function and performance to ensure you are at your best, every day.

Telephone and video consultations now available 

As a result of government recommendations in response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, FASIC is currently closed for face-to-face consultations.

We continue to be available for physiotherapy and medical support, and are now offering telephone or video consultations, following a free triage / screening appointment.  ​​​​​​

Book an appointment

Our team will take a detailed history, use the available information to clinically reason and diagnose your condition, and develop a management strategy to support you through your injury or illness.   The exercise software Physiotec allows us to create a bespoke rehabilitation programme sent directly to your smartphone, tablet, or PC.

We can advise you on new and existing injuries, refer you to relevant NHS services and information, advise on load management, guide you as you perhaps embark on a new activity, or add useful strategies to complement your existing exercise.

For more information and to book, please email fasic@ed.ac.uk
