Physios from Peninsula Sports Medicine Group attended Frankston Blues Junior Basketball training session today to screen many of the representative players for musculoskeletal early warning signs of preventable injury. From the data collected PSM Group’s Sports physios will be providing the blues management and coaches with a 10-15 minute warm up routine to be performed at all training sessions to significantly help prevent the onset of common basketball injuries.
“Almost all of the players screened had one or two similar issues which can be easily addressed…” said Lachlan Goodison – Sports Physio to the blues senior men’s and women’s teams. “The data gained will help the coaches minimise injury and the parents trips to the physio for future seasons we expect.” Lachlan went on to say.
This joint initiative between the Blues and Peninsula Sports Medicine Group forms a foundation for the Blues’ proactive movement towards a more sports scientific approach to basketball and its management for the Blues’ rep players.
