Elite advice for Teddy as he recovers from 'significant' hamstring tendon injury

Town physio Matt Byard had told the Club website that Teddy Bishop is on target to return to training next month.

The midfielder has been sidelined all season with a series of injuries including a hamstring tendon problem and Blues have used the expertise of the British Olympic staff recently to aid his recovery.

“Bish’s pre-season work was curtailed due to bilateral medial tibial stress syndrome, commonly known as shin splints,” explained Matt to  

“Subsequent adjustments to his conditioning programme then contributed to a muscular strain to his right hamstring.

“Bish did some further strength and conditioning work and was able to complete his individualised pre-season programme during September.

“He returned to full training and played for the U21s in October but then suffered a tear to his right hamstring tendon, which is completely different to a hamstring muscle injury and can be a significant problem.

“He was seen in London by the British Olympic Doctor, Noel Pollock. He has had a course of injections to his lower back and hamstring muscles and has continued a lower limb strength and endurance programme.

“Recently he attended Team GB’s Intensive Rehab Unit at Bisham Abbey as part of his recovery.

“He is making good progress and we anticipate his rehabilitation to continue outside within the next two weeks and are scheduling a return to training in early March.”

Ipswich Player spoke to Bish about his fitness battle and his hopes of a first-team return this season. Subscribers can watch the full interview tomorrow.
