As part of our support for local community sporting leagues and clubs the team at Physioworks Health Group has been holding numerous education sessions to ensure all clubs are well prepared to manage player injuries during the winter sport season.
The education sessions, which crossed a range of club administrators and supporters including coaches, trainers and parents, focussed on player injury prevention and management.
