When injury occurs

Injury management

All coaches, officials and administrators are strongly encouraged to undertake appropriate training in basic injury management. All medical staff should undertake an appropriate course in court-side care.

If an injury does occur in Wheelchair Rugby, it is important to be able to identify the injury, treat it appropriately, and help the player recover and return to play the Game.

There are three distinct phases to injury management:

  1. Recognition and immediate treatment
  2. Rehabilitation
  3. Return to play
