Howzat.....? This summer brings the Ashes Test series with England playing Australia, T20 games and a successful World Cup for England. As long as the sunshines and the rain stays away, there are plenty of matches to keep all cricket fans busy. Whether you are a test match special fan, or prefer to follow the games live or on the television, spare a thought for the players and the physical toll it takes on their bodies. Here at Hadleigh and Sudbury osteopaths we treat all sorts of cricketers, both male and female. We see junior and senior club and county players and even an international player, as well as enthusiastic amateurs (some of whom have racked up their best score several seasons ago!). Perhaps the most common cricketing injuries we see are shoulder problems, such as rotator cuff tears and sprains, where any of the four muscles that stabilise the shoulder can be involved. These injuries can affect both batsmen and bowlers. We also see a lot of ankle sprains, as like knees, the ankles an be injured as a result of jumping or sprinting, particularly if there is a sudden change in direction. Fielders who repetitively throw in can be at risk of injury to their elbows, either on the inside aspect of the joint where the flexor tendons attach to the bone, or on the outside where the extensor muscles attach. Low back injuries are also common, especially in the promising players who may play for several teams, and spend a lot of time in the nets. The forces going through the lumbar spine and sacroiliac joints can be quite substantial, when you consider that the ball is released with enough power to enable it to travel at up to160 km/hour. The forces going through the lumbar spine are significant enough to cause vertebral fractures in up to 15% of elite fast bowlers. Then there are the poor wicket keepers’ hips and knees to consider.... We can help to address problems in any of these areas, (whether you are a cricketer or not,) as well as giving exercises and advice about injury prevention and rehabilitation. Hadleigh Osteopaths have been established for over 25 years and specialise in the treatment of all joint and muscle conditions, including back pain, sciatica and sports injuries, as well as providing acupuncture (Sudbury branch only) with fully trained practitioners.
