Active cervical range of motion recovery following the rugby off-season

Sally Lark, Peter McCarthy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


It has been established that Rugby players have reduced active cervical function that further declines with increased number of playing years; noticeable even over a single season. Here we examine one possible reason, namely insufficient recovery during the off-season, which will only be exacerbated by the trend towards a decreasing off-season period.
