Injury management


Rehabilitation requires supervision and management by appropriately trained medical staff, doctors, physiotherapists and fitness advisors. The aim of rehabilitation is to restore the player to full fitness, which includes:

  • recovery of muscle strength
  • restoration of a full range of movement in the joint
  • recovery of co-ordination and balance
  • fitness maintained by exercises such as cycling and swimming
  • when ready - the gradual introduction of Rugby-specific skills
  • contact drills followed by full contact.
