RETURN TO PLAY Higher Training Loads, Faster Games, Less Recovery, No Performance Monitoring, More sitting every day

All of these factors play a huge role in the rise in injuries in our athletes and players. Numbers involved in sport at every grade are reported to be increasing - however so too are injury levels.

The Number 1 predictor of future injury - past injuries.

In short this phenomenon stems from the fact that very often injuries are not rehabbed to the degree necessary to ensure the player/athlete is robust to training/playing demands before they enter the competitive training/playing arena.

HOW IT WORKS

YOUR 5 STEP FORMULA TO SUCCESS

  • STEP 1. Needs analysis - we listen carefully to where your ambition wants to get you and then look at current conditions, approaches and preparations.

  • STEP 2. With joint agreement of the destination we plot a way forward based on what we know works but within the context of your unique situation, culture, resources and budgets.

  • STEP 3. Get to work - there is no time like the present. Across every step we involve and communicate with coaches, player(s) and club as appropriate to ensure everyone understands what we are doing and why we are doing it

  • STEP 4. Feedback and Evaluation - plans rarely survive first contact….it is hugely important to regularly evaluate our work and approach to check for progress and to see if we can find better ways and approaches

  • STEP 5. The ultimate success is to work towards a performance culture that is sufficiently informed and empowered to continue post our intervention

WHAT YOU GET

“Return to Play” is a proven approach to ensuring that not only are players/athletes taken through a planned, staged and monitored rehab phase (as soon as their medical professional releases them) they can be assured that when they follow the process they will come out the other side more robust, with finer athletic skills and enjoying a reduced chance of future injury.

Doesn’t all you hard work deserve the proper back-up and support the “Return To Play” will offer ?

Focused

Our approach is to not just treat the condition - instead we work with the player/athlete to establish why they may have suffered the injury and so initiate a specific program aimed at ensuring the player works

towards a higher level of athletic development in keeping with the demands of the their game/sport.

Experienced

For many years we have worked with players and athletes of all ages and grades and offered them the opportunity

 

to Return To Play ready to train at the top of their ability safe in the knowledge that their injury chances have been lowered.

SEE WHAT THESE SPORTSMEN HAVE TO SAY ABOUT MATCH-FIT

"I went to Paul at Match-Fit before starting a marathon training programme this year. After many unsuccessful attempts in previous years, I finally made it to the start line at Dublin City marathon this year. Thanks to my ongoing work with Match-Fit I was able to focus clearly on my goals, tailor my training to have a specific purpose for each session, work on strengths and identify weaknesses with a practical and scientific approach. The approach adapted by Match-Fit helped me both mentally and physically to finally cross the finishing line. I look forward to working with Match-Fit next year in order to improve my time!"
