Taunton Town Football Club and Charity Hollyoaks Football Match
I worked with Taunton Town Football club for three season, I gain so much hands on experience during my time with the club. It’s not easy looking after footballers in a semi professional club, as they have a full time job during the day and evenings and weekends they dedicate their time to the club. As well as treating sprains and strains, I also witnessed and rehabilitated dislocations of the shoulders and patella. Two fractured tibia and fibulas.
I really had my hands full but the experience was amazing and I wouldn’t be where I am today if I didn’t work with the club.
My patient came into the clinic after falling off his mountain bike during a competition, bruising, swelling and restricted range of movement. I used SPORTTAPE and applied a lymphatic drainage application which lifts the skin and allows the swelling to drain to the lymphs. The tape was kept on for five days and the bruising swelling and range of improved.
