Midleton RFC is involved in an injury prevention research project this season. Colette Garvey (club physio) has designed a new warm-up programme, the “R15”, as part of her Physiotherapy Masters. There is evidence of such research-based programmes being effective in injury prevention for soccer and GAA, but as yet none exist for rugby. The players will use this before all training sessions and matches during the coming season, hopefully with the benefit of reducing injuries.
Heres to looking forward to being fit and healthy!
