In the last yearsReal Madrid has completed one of the most successful cycles in its sports history. It is not easy for any player to be up to the circumstances that are required to play in this team, neither physically nor psychologically. The players must be used in the competition as if there was no tomorrow. They are right, in the sport of first level there is only the present.
The psychological integrityNecessary to play in a stadium where the best players in the world have done it is not easy to maintain, especially against the wind. The scenario weighs and that translates into an additional stress that conditions the appearance of a high rate of injuries, especially muscle injuries.The incidence of these injuries in Madrid in 2018 has been 60% of the total, when normally the rate is between 30% and 50%.
Having said that,the recovery times and the number of recurrences suffered enter the parameters of normality.Everyone who interacts with sports medicine knows the difficulty of diagnosing these injuries, as well as how complicated it can be to indicate when the recovery has come to an end.
The most important factor for the prevention of the injuries of the soccer player is in the balanced preparation of the staff,that takes into account the individual and collective injury history and that allows players to compete in the numerous commitments they have both with the team and in their selections. All this without another horizon in this club than victory. In 2018 Madrid players have suffered 43 injuries. They have paid a high price.The price of glory.
