This session took place in the Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation clinic.
In this session, I gave one player a lower back massage and a soft tissue release on their glutes to help decrease their pain whilst they continue to strengthen their glute maximus and glute medius. It is a real confidence boost to see some big improvements in this player. In the next session, I gave another player mobilisations on their spine for their ongoing back pain whilst under supervision by the clinic supervisor. This time, the supervisor didn’t have to show me what to do first, I felt confident going ahead straight away. This time, I was still using my thumbs instead of the side of my hands, but the clinic supervisor said that this will come with time.
