The Ripoll & De Prado Sport Clinic has been providing health care to football players and athletes of many other disciplines since 1978. The clinic’s headquarters are located in Murcia, and at the present moment, there are also other outpatient clinics in Alicante, Elche, Almería and Madrid, with fully equipped physiotherapy and health facilities that allow for adequate diagnostic, surgery, rehabilitation and injury prevention procedures.

More than 30 doctors of different medical specialities (e.g. orthopaedic surgery, sports medicine, cardiology, physical therapy, physical medicine and rehabilitation, exercise physiology, applied biomechanics, internal medicine, pain management, radiology, neurosurgery, emergency medicine, sports nutrition, sports psychology, etc.) work full- or part-time at the clinic, allowing for complete assessment and monitoring of athletes during the entire sports season. The clinic has in-situ, state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging equipment (MRI, CT, X-rays, ultrasound, etc.), and collaborates with top nearby fully equipped hospitals, Hospital Quironsalud in Murcia and Hospital Ruber Internacional in Madrid.

The Ripoll & De Prado Sport Clinic also has a broad network of international partnerships and is a national and international reference health centre for football clubs. We provide constant sports medicine support to more than 200 elite male and 50 female football players, as well as to more than 200 young players participating in high-level competitions. Our clinics also provide support to several beach football, futsal and amateur male and female football players of all ages, as well as to more than 100 high-level athletes of all ages and of several other sport disciplines, including volleyball, basketball, martial arts and tennis.
