Basketball & First Aid in Ireland
Basketball & first aid in Ireland- it’s fair to say that first aid might not be the first topic to strike your mind when thinking about a basketball game.
Well the basketball season has started in Ireland, being enjoyed by Irish males and females in equal measure all over the country. The purpose of this post is both to pitch our great offer and remind players and coaches and clubs of the importance of having a first aid kit easily to hand either on match day or at practice times.
If you think about it, basketball it is fair to say is an energetic sport with ongoing defensive and offensive plays, and maybe that’s what makes the sport so exciting.
The players have to run backwards & forwards & sideways , not to mention having to jump-land-and turn and sprint at a fast pace.
With marking an opponent obviously there will be direct physical contact and mix in repeated frequent intermittent running and sprinting, that the game requires, and it is easy to see how and why an injury can occur.
THAT’S WHEN FIRST AID FOR BASKETBALL IN IRELAND BECOMES IMPORTANT FOR ANY TEAM OR CLUB .
Some Interesting EU Basketball Injury Stats
The overall incidence of an acute injury in basketball is at around 3-6 incidents over 1000 hours of exposure.
In competition the incidence is at least twice as high as during training practice.
Within the EU-region it is estimated that at least 720,000 basketball-related injuries occur each year, at a direct medical cost of about € 500 million a year.
Most of the incidents happen during matches.
Basketball & First Aid In Ireland- the two actually go hand in hand to a degree.
