Top Injuries in Netball: How Physiotherapy Can Help You Bounce Back

Hey there, netball lovers! Netball is a sport that requires speed, agility, and teamwork. But just like any other sport, it comes with its fair share of injuries. Today, we're going to talk about the top injuries in netball and how physiotherapy can help you bounce back to your best.

The most common injuries in netball are ankle sprains, knee injuries (like ACL tears), and finger injuries. In fact, netball has one of the highest rates of ankle injuries, with 31% of players experiencing an ankle sprain at some point. Now, that's a fair dinkum concern!

Physiotherapy plays a crucial role in the recovery and prevention of netball injuries. It focuses on restoring function, reducing pain, and improving overall performance. A tailored physiotherapy program for netball players may include balance and proprioception training, strength and conditioning exercises, and sport-specific drills.

Research has shown that netball players who engage in regular physiotherapy have a 40% lower risk of sustaining an ankle sprain. How good's that?
