School sport update from September to December 2016
Bristol Physio is extremely proud to be associated with a number of local schools where we’re managing their sports injuries at the weekend, primarily on the rugby field. This requires all our staff to be trained in Sports Trauma Management as well as their other physiotherapy qualifications. Our role involves the treatment of minor niggles, strains and sprains using physiotherapy techniques and to provide medical support for more serious injuries.
All our staff are fully trained on concussion management. In under 19s, concussion management is very precise and is taken very seriously. At Bristol Physio we have designed our own Concussion Protocol based on the latest findings from the Sports Concussion Consensus (2012) and the RFU Guidelines. This is the most up-to-date researched based findings on how to deal with concussion in sport and is the basis that all governing bodies around the world are using for their concussion management. Should you wish to see a copy of this protocol please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are pleased to announce that all our schools have achieved great results this term.
The 1st XV Rugby Team managed a great season this year with significant wins over many local rivals. The highlight of the season probably remains their tour of New Zealand in the summer, however extremely close results against Colston’s and Clifton College should highlight the improvement in their performance this term. They unfortunately lost to Blundell’s in the Natwest Trophy having beaten Sherbourne in the previous rounds.
For the first season ever, Bristol Physio were helping QEH teams at Failand. The rugby was hotly contested and whilst the 1st XV may have had a developing side, there were some great results throughout the school. The U15s were flying the flag for the school with impressive over KES Bath and Beechen Cliff School.
In the second season at Prior, we were very impressed with an emerging 1st XV that clearly had made great strides forward. The team consists of a number of Lower 6th players, who showed great potential coming into the 7s series; wins over Kings College, Taunton and Kings School Bruton were some of the highlights of the term.
Looking forward, all three schools will now enter into the 7’s season. All age groups will be participating in tournaments throughout the South West culminating with the Rosslyn Park 7s at the end of March.
Bristol Physio will continue to provide our services throughout next term to all hockey, football, netball and rugby teams at all three locations.
Please remember that all students, parents and staff from the schools are eligible for discounted treatment and services at Bristol Physio. Just click here to contact us.
