Injuries are a pain in the ass

 

We know that

 

Nothing derails a season quicker thank picking up a crappy injury

 

Our mission at Cricket Strength is to minimise injuries as much as possible

 

Ive said many times that there has got to be a way that we can take the worst injuries, the Stress Fractures, and make them far less than there are now

 

Are we there yet?

 

Not completely but on the other hand I haven’t seen a bowler without a posture, mobility, stability, motor control issue yet

 

And we are not bright enough with how we are handling young bowlers through a growth spurt, and how we are loading them in patterns they cant cope with

 

Anyway…

 

When you have an injury we attack the issue in 2 ways

 

From the bottom up, and from the top down

 

Sound strange

 

Well, let me explain my friend

 

Lets look at the top down first

 

This is basically saying we have to attack the actual problem we are being presented with

 

If a player comes of the pitch with back pain you have to address it

 

Even if you think that the back is where the issue is it still needs treating, if for no other reason than the player will feel better doing it

 

We had a fast bowler come off this season worried about his back. Myself and Benny (the physio) spoke to him as Benny assessed him, and explained the pain was more referral than a bone issue

 

We then took him into to gym to show him a couple drills to help ease the pain quickly

 

The player was put at ease and went back out 15 mins later feeling a lot better about life, knowing there were things to do to help

 

But then we had to work from the bottom up

 

There was a reason for the injury, and it was our job to find out what it was

 

So the next morning we went through a movement assessment and our weekly markers with him (there is a webinar talking you through all the tests we do in the Inner Circle)

 

We found a couple issues he had and attacked them in his prehab and activation sessions

 

And got him through the next 4 weeks

 

If we’d just tried the band aid approach (covering the problem and hoping it goes away) we might have ended up with a very different outcome

 

Ill go into the band aid approach, and why you need to avoid it, very soon

 

But until then if you need help with your body, need programs for this winter, then the Inner Circle has it all
