Dr David Su is honoured to be part of the team of Gleneagles specialist doctors attending to the players at the 2015 BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore from October 23 to November 1. Gleneagles Hospital is the official medical partner of this year’s WTA Finals in Singapore. This acclaimed singles and doubles tournament is the highlight of the women’s tennis circuit with US$7 million prize money.
In this WTA Finals period, Dr Su hopes to continue sharing his knowledge on preventing and managing sports injuries. In his article on injury-free workout at the Gleneagles WTA Finals website, he shared the importance of including agility and core strength training in any fitness workout activity. Agility training helps in the balance and coordination in many sports. It is important in the prevention of falls and joint injuries when moving fast. Core strength focuses on the muscles that are crucial for stabilised spine, trunk and limbs. It is important in preventing back pain and injuries for athletes and office workers alike.
Lastly, Dr Su wishes all players the best of form for the WTA Finals Singapore!
