PhysioRoom.com Rugby Injuries Top 5 describes the most common injuries in rugby and explains the latest treatment techniques. Rugby injuries occur most often during collisions such as during tackling, rucking and mauling. Upper limb injuries occur frequently in rugby due to the ball handling and physical contact nature of the sport. Shoulder injuries such as collar bone fractures and Acromioclavicular sprains can lead to a prolonged injury lay off, as can thumb sprains and thumb dislocations.

Following these rugby injuries an opinion from an orthopaedic doctor is often required to ascertain whether surgery is necessary. Whether orthopaedic surgery is needed or not, rehabilitation under the guidance of a chartered physiotherapist is essential to speed up a return to fitness. You can find a sports injury specialist to treat your injury using the PhysioRoom.com Directory - a searchable database of physiotherapists, orthopaedic surgeons, osteopaths, massage therapists, podiatrists and chiropractors.
