We regularly attend courses to refresh our first aid and spinal injury management and so we are confident that we provide the best care to your players. Unfortunately, and fortunately we have experience in managing serious spinal injuries and concussion which is important when working with high impact sports such as rugby.
The benefits of having a Chartered Physiotherapist pitch side are many. From a team point of view, quick and accurate diagnosis is important to determine if a player can continue to play or needs to retire early. For the player, early diagnosis of injury and correct advice regarding management results in the best prognosis in the shortest time possible. Research has shown that strapping pre-match has been found to prevent injuries, especially ankle/ knee/ thumb sprains, adds to the player’s confidence and allows player’s to return to play sooner rather than later.
At Clonmel Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic, our Chartered Physiotherapists are affiliated with many local rugby, football, soccer, hurling teams and also with the Munster development Rugby Teams. We enjoy working with sports teams and the dynamic and challenging nature of it, keeping players on the pitch with the aim of having a successful season.
