HOW TO: PREVENT & MANAGE INJURY

Most teams are now at that stage of the season where every point counts – that extra point you earn now may go a long way to determine where you end up on the table this season, and it is important to stay injury-free.

A lot of injury prevention is common sense. Ensure that you are properly stretched and warmed up before training and matches, and keep your body warm. Do not cut corners.

If you already have an injury, ensure you properly treat it as soon as it is sustained to maximise your rehabilitation and recovery. Follow your physio’s advice and do all the extra strengthening and stretching work to get you back to full fitness before the end of the year.
