Injury prevention in Cricket

If you’re a little more serious about your cricket, chances are that you’re probably going to injure yourself at some point; cricket injuries are common. Regular maintenance visits to a chiropractor can help you avoid and minimise the risk of sustaining a serious cricketing injury that sees you out for the season. Many elite cricketing teams and players employ chiropractors to work alongside physiotherapists and sports medicine doctors to help prevent and treat cricket injuries. The most common cricket injuries are: Lower back – stress fractures and early degenerative osteoarthritis; Ankle sprain; Shoulder pain; and Hamstring strain. Many actions in cricket place a lot of stress on one side of the body which can cause injuries and loss of form. Bishops Stortford Chiropractic Clinic strongly recommend that all players develop core stability which can help provide a solid foundation for typical cricket movements and help reduce the likelihood of injury. Lower-back problems, hamstring strain, and tendon inflammation are just a few of the injuries that often result from having poor technique or weak stabilizing muscles, or from simply failing to warm up correctly.
