All other injuries

Assess the player on the court using the

TOTAPS

system.

Talk

What happened? Where does it hurt?

Observe

Look at the injured area. Is it different from the other side (swollen, a different colour, etc)?

Touch

Feel for swelling, tenderness and pain.

Active movement

Ask the player to move the injured part without assistance.

Passive movement

If the player moves the injured part actively, then carefully move it through a full range of movement.

Skill test

If the active and passive movements did not produce pain, ask the player to perform basic pushing and passing skills.
