Cricket Fast Bowling Analysis

Fast Bowling is like no other skilled movement pattern in world sports. It puts a great deal of stress on the lower back, ankles and knees and is highly repetitive. Young developing fast bowlers therefore have an increased risk of developing stress fractures of the lumbar spine for a number of factors; the bowlers age, the amount of bowling being performed, poor technique, insufficient muscle strength or a combination of all these factors

The therapists at Rob Leather Physiotherapy have vast experience and skill in analysing fast bowling actions. Within this screening the team would identify any risk factors developing with a fast bowler, looking at workloads (overs bowled), strength levels, and action types with the use of video analysis.

Workload (overs bowled) and injury prevention plans would be set up for the client to ensure that all the risk factors associated with fast bowling are addressed.
