Management of Rugby Injuries

This section encompasses various aspects of injury identification, prevention and management, including on-field acute rugby injuries, acute spinal cord injuries, and concussion, specific injury prevention programs, rehabilitation and return-to-play guidelines, and specific practical guidelines for a coach or referee on when an injury is serious enough to remove a player from the field of play, or when to seek specialist medical opinion. The primary focus of this section and also on the instructional DVD is the appropriate identification and management of potentially serious concussion, head, neck and spine injuries, and BokSmart provides detailed clinical best practice guidelines in these areas. Detailed injury prevention programs are provided on the BokSmart website; the most relevant being on preventative neck and shoulder conditioning. An instructional portion on neck conditioning is further provided on the DVD resource.
