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
