Netball is a sport known for its quick direction changes, jumping, and sudden stopping and starting. This places a lot of stress on the feet, ankles and knees. If these movements are not done correctly, they can result in injuries including sprains, fractures, dislocations and bruising.
The injury rate for netballers is around 14 injuries per 1,000 hours played. Given this huge risk, it is crucial to prevent injuries from occurring, not just to treat them once they have happened.
