From early September, three local schools will be benefiting from expert physiotherapy during their rugby matches. Prior Park College, Bristol Grammar School and Cheltenham College will all be using Bristol Physio's services on a match day to help with injuries and game day management.
When first approached by Paul Hull (ex-England and Bristol RFC) regarding helping the Prior Park College rugby squad, Andy jumped at the chance. Having worked with young rugby players at Gloucester Rugby, Andy knew the benefit from well guided warm-ups and cool downs and the the expert interventions that he could bring to the young aspiring players.
During a trip to Roslin Park 7s in the spring, further discussions took place with Olly Morgan (ex-England and Gloucester Rugby) of Cheltenham College and Rick Sellers of Bristol Grammar School and the idea of physiotherapy services at rugby matches was born.
A further bonus for both Bristol Grammar School and Prior Park College takes the form of dedicated clinics for the current pupils, Sports Scholars as well as parents and alumini. Discounted rates for the services will be offered for clinics at the schools.
Bristol Physio is really looking forward to working with schools and wishes them all the best for the season ahead.
