How to avoid injuries

Wednesday 16 January 2013

The latest in the programme of parents' evenings was held in the club room on monday of thie week (14th) and was a talk on "Growth Related Injuries in Young Athletes" (and how to avoid them). A well attended session listened to club Track and Field Chairman Andrew Seary, who is an experienced Chartered Physiotherapist, explain the potential injury problems of the growing athlete, how to recognise them and what to do.

Andrew illustrated his talk with a presentation which demonstrated the symptoms to look out for, the importance of corrrect movement technique and posture and how to deal with related injuries. Plus much more.

Andrew has a busy physiotherapy practice in Cardiff and has many years of experience with sports injuries of all kinds.
