Exercise Programme ‘Can Reduce Concussion’ in Youth Rugby

BBC News

A 20-minute exercise programme for young rugby players to improve their strength and balance could help to reduce concussion injuries, according to a study from the University of Bath.

.

In a study of 14- to 18-year-olds in 40 schools, those completing the exercises three times a week saw 59% fewer concussions than other schools.
The exercises focus on increasing neck muscle strength, balance and movement.

.

The RFU is rolling out the programme in schools in England from next season.

.

The Rugby Football Union says it will provide seminars for rugby coaches on the exercises, as well online resources and training pitch handouts.
Head and neck injuries are more common in rugby than other sports because of the impact of tackling and scrummaging.
During the teenage years, when boys and girls become stronger and fitter, the risk of injury increases sharply.

.

Prof Keith Stokes, who led the study, said the research showed that “a simple set of exercises on a regular basis can substantially reduce injuries in youth rugby”.

.

He said: “We believe these findings will have a significant impact in helping to improve player welfare, making the game safer for young players to enjoy.”

.

The exercise programme is split into four parts – and is made up of:
a running warm-up with changes of direction (two minutes)
single leg balance training (four minutes)
targeted resistance exercises, including on head and neck (eight minutes)
jumping, side-stepping and landing exercises (six minutes)
