Cricket injuries

General Advice

Common cricketing injuries involve the rotator cuff (shoulder) and back and knee. Fielders can sustain shoulder injuries from repeated throwing, and direct trauma occurs in batsmen usually involving the fingers, chest and face.

We have a number of articles and injury advice which may help you to understand and self manage your injury, though it may not specifically tell you what to do as every injury is unique.

You can choose a physio, our recommendation being Scot McAllister, physio to Yorkshire County Cricket Club, and a Chartered Physiotherapist, who has the specialist skills to help you treat your injury with a personalised programme.
