The medical team at the Clínica Sant Josep will attend BAXI Manresa during the 2019-2020 season.
Once again, the players of BAXI Manresa passed the sports medical check-up at the CIMETIR, Comprehensive Center for Sports Medicine, Traumatology and Rehabilitation, at the Clinic Sant Josep complex. The review given to CIMETIR, supervised by Dr. Carme Comellas, a professional with a long and recognized experience in sports medicine, includes anthropometric study, stress tests and other explorations, for example cardiology if required, which will determine the physical condition of the players.
Today was the turn of players Frankie Ferrari, Jordan Davis and Jordan Sakho. In total, almost 20 people between players and first-team technicians will have passed the review at CIMETIR.
The press conference of this afternoon was attended by Josep Sáez, president of the Basketball Manresa and Dr. Albert Estiarte, director of the Sant Josep Clinic. The president of the Josep Sáez club pointed out that "it is immense to be able to count on the collaboration of the Althaia Foundation and the CIMETIR, a team of people close and of great professional reputation." For his part, Dr. Albert Estiarte has remarked that "it is great for us to continue collaborating with the Basketball Manresa and offer the necessary medical services so that the team has a good physical performance throughout the season."
