Maverick coaches learn how to tape like the “pros”!

2013 / 11 / 20

Oct. 19th, Orleans - Fourteen Maverick coaches and trainers participated in a two-hour session to learn how to tape the most common volleyball injuries. Adel Abd El Malekere, owner and head physiotherapist at St. Mary’s Physiotherapy Centre in Orleans, explained the science behind taping sport injuries and provided a step-by-step demonstration on taping ankles, thumbs fingers and wrists. Then, it was up to each coach to try the skills first-hand on their partners. Let’s just say some taping jobs were a bit better than others!
The Maverick Volleyball Club would like to thank Adel for his time and expertise as well as for opening his clinic after hours to teach the session. Adel was not only knowledgeable about injury management and treatment; he also had incredible patience as he helped coaches practice their new skills on each other! After rolls and rolls of tape, each coach came out of the session much more confident in their ability to help their athletes if an unfortunate injury occurs.
If you need a physiotherapist with expertise in sport therapy, we encourage you to visit Adel at the St. Mary Physiotherapy Centre, 2010 Trim Road, Unit 7-10, in Orleans.
