Newcastle Sports Injury Clinic’s physiotherapists were on hand to offer remedial sports massage treatments to jockeys at the recent point-to-point steeplechase at Corbridge.
NSIC sponsored the event and provided an open stall and with massage tables set up for riders at the seven-race event on February 28th.
Point-to-point steeplechasing is amateur horse racing over jumps. They are typically three miles long, though distances can vary. The courses are challenging and are a test of endurance for both horse and rider, so the Newcastle Sports Injury Clinic massages were hugely appreciated!
If you’re a jockey or if you often ride horses, a sports massage can be very beneficial for recovery. Learn more about our sports massages and other physiotherapy services or look for us at other local events.
