‘GAA 15’ Injury Prevention/Warm Up Programme.admin
The GAA in association with Salaso have released a warm up/injury prevention programme called the ‘GAA 15’ Injury Prevention Programme. Here at Carbery Physiotherapy we find this a useful resource and feedback from our teams and patients have been very positive. The selected injury prevention intervention is based on programmes incorporated internationally by FIFA (the 11+) (FMARC) and by the Santa Monica Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Research Foundation (PEP) in soccer, the findings from the National Injury database since 2007 and a pilot of the programme in UCD.
The Programme is a series of short videos showing exercises that can be used to prevent injury or as a standard warm up routine prior to a practice session or game. The exercises are broken into 6 key areas, i.e. Running, Strengthening, Sport Balance, Jumps, Hamstrings & Sport Specific.
