Basketball and netball are extremely popular sports in Australia, with more than one million players nationally. These fast-paced games are loved the world over for its combination of strength, agility, accuracy and athleticism. As a player you are constantly jumping, running at high speeds and diving for balls. Due to these dynamic movements and fast pace play, basketballer’s joints are susceptible to stain and injury.
