Top physio returns to Sevens

Wednesday October 17, 2018 Written by Published in Rugby Union

Sports physiotherapist Tanya Browne will be returning to the Raro Rugby Sevens, providing workshops for the community on strapping and concussion prevention.


The workshop will be held at the Islander Hotel and in store at CITC Pharmacy.

Browne ran successful workshops last year showing strapping techniques and injury prevention also educated attendees on the importance of identifying concussions acting on caring for the athlete immediately.

The workshops are $15 and include participants being provided with tape and equipment that they can take home with them.

Cook Islands Trading Corporation (CITC) is working with Browne to promote the use of mouth guards, strapping and general sports health.

The workshop at CITC Pharmacy will give its manager Shannon Saunders an opportunity to get right behind this educational workshop and also run a competition.

“The deal is buy $20 of any D3 products K-tape, rigid tape, ice packs, and first aid kits and go in the draw to win one of three prizes. The total prize package is worth over $600. One entry per sale, but you can enter as many times as you like. Raro Rugby D3 Promotion is for Cook Islands residents only however if you are an international player or supporter you can nominate a local rugby Sevens team to win your prize! How is that for cool?” Saunders said.
