With regard to individual player treatment, Luke often sees players from elite level to weekend warriors, each of them will get the same high level treatment, focusing on hands on treatment, movement retraining, strength and conditioning, diet, sleep, supplementation as well as utilising Luke’s local network of massage therapy, personal training, podiatry, and referral when needed for imaging/surgical consults.
At North Down Chiropractic we have fantastic links with numerous local football clubs, particularly with Bangor Football club of which Luke Neal sits on the board of directors, managing the medical component of the club.
TREATMENT FOR FOOTBALLERS
Luke Neal has undertaken extensive post graduate training in relation to football, completing courses such as the FIFA football medicine diploma, Active Release Techniques and the SFMA. These courses focus on the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of football specific injuries, mostly those of the ankle, foot and lower limb.
Luke’s work at Bangor spans the monitoring of injury across the first team, the prescription of pre-training exercise to combat most common injuries, hands on treatment of players as well as co-ordination of the medical team. This allows for not only the specific focus on treatment of individual injury but also the governance and oversite associated with managing sports teams’ injuries and performance across the season.
