GAA Injuries

GAA InjuriesGAA.ie published an article written by Dr Catherine Blake: UCD School of
Public Health Physiotherapy and Sports Science, stating that:

– 1/3 have more than one injury in any season.
– One quarter of injuries are recurrences of existing or old injuries.
– Over 75% of injuries are to the lower limbs and the majority are to the
‘soft tissues’.
– hamstring strains being the single biggest problem (17-23%).
– 2/3 being non-contact injuries.
– Exercise based training which targets neuro-muscular control is proven
to reduce lower limb injury in sport.

Most athletes have a niggle, are recovering from an injury or managing a
re-occurring injury from happening again.

Neuro-muscular control is highlighted here and is an important component
of any pre/re-hab program.
