LivingCare, the Best Care for the Sheffield Steelers.

When you are the number one professional ice hockey club in the UK you demand the very best quality and service from your partners, especially in the medical field in treating our playing staff. 



That was one of the main reasons the Steelers have teamed up with LivingCare, located at the Canon Medical Arena at the Olympic Legacy Park, just a few hundred yards from our home facility in Broughton Lane.   The Steelers partnership with LivingCare ensures that our medical team can obtain immediate assessment of our players’ injuries and medical conditions using a various range of high-quality scanning and imaging procedures.  

 

LivingCare provides a central location for imaging referrals for a range of professional sports clubs like the Steelers. 


Alfie Martin (GSR, Bsc, MSc) is the Head of Sports Rehabilitation at the Steelers. He is the man responsible for looking after the health and welfare of the team “We have found LivingCare to offer a first class service to us” Alfie said, “we use LivingCare for all of our imaging services, such as MRI and CT scans.



“LivingCare offer a great speed of service, which helps us with access to imaging early, which in turn allows quick injury diagnosis and accurate injury timelines. This is important to the players and coaching staff as it helps speed up our RTP (return to play timeline).  “The precise service that LivingCare offer ourselves helps us with the rehabilitation programmes so we can be as accurate and specific as possible in the treatment and recovery process.”  “LivingCares’ state of the art facility suits all of our medical needs, they understand us and our requirements.” 

 

Steelers’ head coach Aaron Fox confirmed “as a head coach your players health and welfare is paramount so ensuring the correct diagnosis of an  injury is essential.  Our whole medical and fitness team have been delighted not only with the service that Living Care have provided, but also the in-depth detail of their imaging.”  


This allows Alfie and Mike (strength and conditioning coach) to understand the player’s condition quickly and correctly and apply the right treatment for a safe and speedy return to action.” 


Luke Gorse, Business Development Manager at LivingCare : ‘It’s great to witness firsthand the impact that dedicated medical support can have on the performance and recovery of elite athletes. When I met with Alfie initially, a partnership was a no brainer. In such a physically demanding sport, getting the right treatment as quickly as possible can be the difference between winning and losing.  This is a relatively new partnership but we’re sure it will continue to grow and meeting the team on and off the ice showed us just how passionate they are about the sport!’
