Fall and Injury rate in horse racing

As I’m working at the races today, as opposed to my usual hub at Mindfully Active Physio in Bishops Stortford, here is an insight into the frequency and types of injuries sustained in both professional flat and jump racing.


It may surprise you to see that, according to the data found within this study, the prevalence of concussions is greater in flat racing compared to jump racing.


Physiotherapy at the races is always great fun, working with talented and motivated athletes who are driven to compete and succeed.
