Medical & athletic screening appointments involve routine or baseline assessments prior to participation in sport or at the start of a season. Anyone who is considering commencing an exercise regime or who competes in high level sport in Dubai or internationally would benefit from this kind of assessment.
In addition, older athletes, those with medical problems or recovering from illness or injury would also benefit as screening can aid development of a personalised, safe and progressive exercise programme.
Tests can cover a number of areas including cardiac, concussion, musculoskeletal and biomechanical assessments as well as blood tests, electrocardiograms (ECGs) and sometimes further imaging such as X-ray or ultrasound, and are designed to reduce the risk of injury and ill health by identifying and addressing any problems at an early stage.
Our sports medicine doctors usually conduct medicals at our clinic and take up to 90 minutes to complete; for teams or larger groups we can visit team grounds to conduct screening.
"Very quickly after seeing Jen my life was changed, not only because I felt physically better, but because she is someone who takes care of the problem, studies the case and provides clear explanations."
MARTA NICOLETTA GRATEFUL TO JENNIFER RATH
"Such a major achievement to be able to do these swims again, and the same with my spinning. Without the constant support of UPANDRUNNING these activities would not be possible."
MARIA THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT
"My son recently hit his head while playing rugby. He rested but a couple of days later he developed a headache. After testing at UPANDRUNNING he had suffered a minor concussion. UAR were extremely professional and knew exactly what to do."

KEEPING INJURY FREE!
I’ve been a patient of UpAndRunning for years. Dr Anna is my go-to Doctor for all my sports injuries and Christine is a fantastic physio. My knees are in good hands here.
Got the sports massage after I did an endurance race. My hips were in so much pain! Felt loads better afterwards, could move freely and the strain was taken off them 👍🏼
