This session took place in the Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation Clinic.
In the first session, an athlete came forth complaining of tightness around their neck and shoulder. So, I gave them a soft tissue massage on their upper fibres of trapezius, scalenes, and sternocleidomastoid. In the next session, I ran through the rehabilitation with a player for their minor groin strain. During this, I used motivational language, kept on top of asking how much pain he was in whilst performing the exercises and ensured he was using correct technique. Working with players who experience intimidate injuries is something I always thought would make me nervous. However, now that I have worked with a player who has experienced this, it has made me realise that it is just like any other injury.
