Injury prevention, the key to performance, part 1
In this first edition I hope to provide readers with a basic guide on injury prevention. If I was to ask you all how injury had affected you or your performance, I am sure that everyone could remember at least one episode that prevented you from achieving your aspirations. These are stories that we encounter on a day to day basis as physiotherapists and many injuries are potentially avoidable with a basic understanding of correct preventative strategies. In part 1, the relevant evidence for stretching, warm up and warm down will be discussed.
