In August, Chiropractor Danny Adams and Massage Therapist Kate West from the Longlevens Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic proudly attended the first ever UK hosted Hockey Masters World Cup, a great opportunity to meet and treat athletes from all around the world.
Our Therapists’ adventure began with the assistance of the RAC, but once they had safely arrived, they very successfully worked as part of the Hockey event’s Sports Medicine Team with 7 other manual therapists, including Osteopaths, Physios and Chiropractors. The set-up of having a team of professionals in one area at one event worked very well at the Hockey, presenting the international Hockey players with a range of knowledge and experience. Hockey injuries were delegated evenly between the group and the competitors were treated on a first come first serve basis.
Danny and Kate were able to take the time to shadow other treatment techniques and found that they came away having gained an incredible amount through observation and learning as well as experience. The hockey players themselves were extremely enthusiastic about receiving treatment making the event all the more rewarding for Practitioners. What a great success. Well done to all who took part.
