Abstract

The management of a chronic injury to an international squash player is described. By good physiotherapeutic management and the involvement of an interdisciplinary team it was possible to make gains in the non-playing period. The rehabilitation period included physiological assessment on the basis of which a training programme was devised with target goals set throughout the period. Mental rehearsal of skills was included at all stages. As a result, the player's confidence was maintained and fitness levels improved. The long term prognosis has been good. The model could be applied to any sports injury.
