This session took place in the Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation Clinic.
Within this session, I assessed the player who came to me at practise complaining of glute/back pain. To begin, I did a neurological assessment, which this time round I feel a lot more confident doing since we have now begun the spinal module. The player wasn’t experiencing any neurological symptoms, however upon assessment it was decided that the issue was muscular. It seemed that the player had an overactive piriformis and had a weak glute maximus and glute medius. I took this information to the head sports therapist to ask if it was ok for me to write a rehabilitation plan for this player (but would get this reviewed before giving this to the player).
