It is the management of exercise to get the athlete back to a playing state without the hinderance of an injury. What is my role? To assist the athlete in any area to make sure they are capable physically and mentally to perform. My aim is to effectively devise a plan that is beneficial to the athlete to get them back in the quickest time but in the safest way, to prevent deconditioning and to set short and long term goals to maintain and good psychological climate.
Throughout the rehab stage five parameters will be taken into consideration to assist with the overall goal.
