polonia-warszawa-1Polonia Warszawa, currently the oldest active football club in the capital city, has been provided  with care by Rehasport Clinic specialists since 1 January! “Black T-shirts” have started preparations for spring round with medical examinations in Rehasport Clinic.

Since the beginning of 2017 Polonia Warszawa’s players have been provided with professional medical care of doctors, physiotherapists and physical trainers from the only Polish center which belongs to the group of the world’s top medical FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence centers. Rehasport Clinic provides care to Olympic medalists and world champions as well as is an official medical partner of the Polish Handball Federation and Polish Sailing Association. Now this group has been enlarged to include Polonia Warszawa – Cooperation with the club with such an impressive history and being a pride of the capital city for years provides us with much pleasure and gives satisfaction. I am sure that we can substantially contribute to Polonia Warszawa’s growth – says PhD Witold Dudziński, a Rehasport Clinic president.

On Monday, 2 January, in the head office of Rehasport Clinic at al. Rzeczypospolitej 5 in Warsaw “Black T-shirts” officially started preparing for the spring round. Each of the players was subject to Functional Biomechanical Assessment – a series of tests and measurements which guaranteed an objective assessment of such parameters as strength and muscle resistance, proprioception level (the so-called proprioceptive sensation) and proper movements. Thanks to regular Functional Biomechanical Assessment, it is possible to monitor progress and health hazards, as well as identify and eliminate the so-called weak links. This reduces the injury risk, particularly in the period when players prepare for the season.

– Polonia is implementing modern methods which serve to improve players’ results. Good preparation of the team for the spring season is a key – to see its significance, let’s recall last year’s situation when Polonia made it to the II league in the spring  – says Jerzy Engel, a Polonia Warszawa’s president. – We prioritize suitable preparation and this is why we use services of a fantastic clinic which by examining our players checks their health, specifies their current capabilities and potential. Test results will also help the coach choose suitable work each player has to do – adds Jerzy Engel.
