Hunt injury

Recommended Posts

He was reported as looking distressed in a recent Training post. Has his injury - whatever it is - flown under the radar?

Isn't that Hunt's main job, to create space with his run? If he needs it given to him, I say drop him to Casey.

He's fun this kid, such a quirky character.

Tagged himself in the photo above as the Egyptian Canola Man.

A track watcher did report on the training thread he overheard during the week at training the words back and serious, let's hope not.

Hunt missed a year from mid 2014 with a serious back injury.  Let's hope it isn't the same/related (if he is injured).

On the positive side our club and doctors have successfully treated him and (Hogan) for serious back injuries and know how to look after them.

If he is at training this week we know he is ok.  Even if he isn't, it may not be serious - just precautionary rest till the new year. 

Let's wait till we hear something one way or the other.

JH is training but is on a modified program (to manage his back). Certainly nothing serious. I gather is just precautionary rather than as a result of any mishap.

He was training last Friday. I didn't notice he was hampered in any way but I also didn't know he was supposed to be carrying anything so maybe I didn't look closely enough. For the casual observer, he was fine.

The problem with back injuries is they tend to never fully heal.  It then becomes a matter of managing them to prevent flare-ups rather than fixing them entirely.  This means putting a lot of work into the core to provide extra support around the site of the injury and occasionally backing off to let it settle down when it shows signs of being a problem.  As long as they are monitoring it and managing his loads it should be ok.

I cringe when thinking of Hunt missing a game or any game in fact . Love the way he plays and breaks the lines. Potential All Australian very soon. Go Boy!

I see one of the therapists who are contracted to the Dees (i've had multiple spinal operations and also require ongoing management) We always have a gasbag about the players, their aches and pains and some funny tales. 

Anyway, Hunt was in getting treated for general work around the hips and glutes etc and only mentioned literally at the very end of the treatment that he had a sore back. So the session was extended and the treatment took a different direction with some work on his back.  

With due respect to not advising the therapist, He/She didn't think it's a worrying sign, just a management thing.

I’ve never respected client/patient confidentially anyway. Thanks Port D!

Correct Ralph. 

On-going management and rehab.
