The crazy way to get injured

Last week I listened to a fantastic podcast


It was with top US S&C Eric Cressey and probably one of the best minds on the spine, Dr Stuart McGill


Now it was so good I’ve already had it on 3 times!


They talk a lot about working with sportsmen who operate in lower back extension and rotation


Baseball pitchers, gymnasts and of course fast bowlers


And it is within these sports we see a high prevalence of stress fractures


The fast bowlers nemesis


McGill talks about how the action within bowling puts the spine under a tremendous amount of pressure


Totally unnatural things to do to the spine


But the big things he was concerned about was the high incidence players getting injured in training


Just think how crazy this is


Fast bowlers are doing one of the hardest physical activities but getting hurt doing bad gym programs


What a waste


Surely the whole purpose of what we do should be helping support the player to be able to be able to get through the game with as little injuries as possible


Things like the heavy strength and Olympic lifting that are great for some sports are just not having the right effect for extension and rotation athletes


Put they make up a majority of the training we still see players being given


Its actually scary what we get sent


A young lad starting the 1-1 plan after seeing our case study of the lad who suffered with back issue for 3 years sent us the program he has been given, which for the last 18 months hasn’t worked


And it was shocking


The poor lad has been banging his head against a brick wall


Not only is the game hurting his back, the training is as well


He was well past the point of no return


So if you have frustrations, feel you are not getting the right support, or plan, then let us help

Think differently




p.s. you can watch the video of the young fella who struggled coming back from back injury here too
