UPPER BODY INJURIES
GAA Sports place high demands on the upper body.
Twisting and sharp turns in Hurling and Camogie create strains and stresses.
High fielding and high impact in all GAA sports create tears and pulls in upper body muscles and ligaments.
Over the coming months we will build up a library of articles relating to the treatment and prevention of GAA specific injuries relating to the lower body.
UPPER BODY INJURY PREVENTION
A key area of work will focus on prevention of injury occurring and this will highlight player welfare and adequate rest periods and periods of low intensity work.
We will consult with some of the top GAA Physios in Ireland for advice and to contribute articles over the year.
