To; All Wrestlers, retired or not,
I am a student at the European School of Osteopathy in Maidstone, and I am required as part of my M.Ost degree to produce a research paper, the subject is to be “Injuries in Wrestling.”
The project is focussing on injuries occurring in all types of wrestling, and whether there are identifyable patterns in say Greco Roman/ freestyle/other.
Whilst I know there have been studies mainly in the Unitied States, it would be interesting to identify independently and maybe to look at the problems osteopathically with a view to possible treatment /management plans to help rehabilitate/prevent further injury.
Attached is a link to the survey, and I would be very grateful if you could spare the time to fill it in. All information gathered is confidential and not for publication.
