In its bid to protect the welfare and safety of athletes, a collaboration between the Jordan Olympic Committee and Crown Prince Foundation has provided crucial training to 45 physiotherapists from the sporting sector.
The Qusai Initiative was set up following the tragic on-field death of a young Jordanian footballer three years ago, and it is fast making a difference to the medical expertise and facilities available to sports clubs and facilities.
This week, the physiotherapists were put through a Spinal Column Injuries course over two days which explained the various injuries that could be suffered by sportsmen and women and also the way they need to be treated during the crucial early stages.
The course was conducted by Dr. Kathrin Ortiga, the former president of the World Confederation for Physical Therapy, and Dr. Thomas Abdulnoor, the chief of physical therapy at the Golden State Warriors Basketball Team in the USA.
Meanwhile, the Qusai Initiative has completed work on a new medical complex in Der Abi S'eed in northern Jordan as part of its strategy to establish nine complexes across the Kingdom by the end of the year.
