NECK-AND SHOULDER INJURIES
With the increasing physical demand in the nature of the game of rugby, little has been done to prevent the cause of serious neck-, shoulder and spinal injuries. We have developed a product to prepare and enhance players to a level capable of withstanding these physical demands where the risk of injuries is substantially decreased. The apparatus is a specialized multifunctional helmet and tubing, used for neck strengthening exercises. Statistics of injuries in rugby shows that between 35%-50% of the most common injuries happens to your shoulders, neck and head. The following 4 reasons are the main areas where these injuries occur:
3-Rucks and Mauls
The key components of our conditioning, prevention and rehabilitation programs are:
1-It limits and prevents occurrence and re-occurrence of injuries
3-Increases FUNCTIONAL STRENGTH
5-Corrects abnormal biomechanics
It is currently used by the Western Province Rugby Institute, Stormers and u/21 High Performance Squads. Testimonials include, Clint Readhead(2007 World Cup Physiotherapist), Johan van Wyk(WP Rugby Institute), J.D. Moller, Willem de Waal(Both Stormers). Bismarck du Plessis also used it after his neck injury and John Smit will also be using this product to strengthen his neck after his operation. Danie Gerber has also used this device and has said” There is nothing that comes close to ultimately strengthen and excersise all the plains around your neck and shoulders in the modern game of rugby. It would be a great pity if the Springboks do not make use of this breakthrough technology as the World Cup looms in 2011. They need to use every means available to keep them one step ahead of the other rugby playing nations in terms of preparation.”
If you are a serious rugby player/coach and if you, the parents are aware of the increasing toll of neck and shoulder injuries on these sportsmen, it would be wise to consider this product as it only has superior advantages over anything else offered on the market.
