American Football kicks off with the Performance Lab
We are extremely proud to announce that we are one of the official sponsors and now provide pitch side physiotherapy for the Lancashire Wolverines American Football Team who play their home games at Blackburn Rugby Club.
Dave Hampson is our pitch side physiotherapist having worked in professional football and high level Rugby Union. Dave will certainly have his hands full if the first home game of the season has anything to go by.
Both Phil and I were kindly invited by the club to meet the players and coaching staff and for free food and Prosecco. It was a really enjoyable afternoon. We were met by Gavin from the club who kindly filled us in on the rules and tactical elements of the game. For anyone who has not seem American Football first hand we fully recommend a visit to this family friendly afternoon of good quality sport and entertainment.
Unfortunately the Lancashire Wolverines were beaten on the day by Merseyside who by all accounts are an up and coming team for the future. The Wolverines weren't helped by not having their star quarter back playing due to a slight altercation at the previous game and a sending off, but rest assured 'Meady' will be back next week to bolster the side and hopefully provide the first of many victories this year.
Here at the Performance Lab we have a highly trained team of clinical specialist physiotherapists with all over 10 years experience at the highest level.
If you would like a consultation with regards a current injury or if you are looking to avoid injury we can definitely help you. Contact us through our website or Facebook page to book directly.
