José María Silberberg, a surgeon specializing in Traumatology and Orthopedics and an expert in Sports Medicine, warns of the need for a specific plan for each player, to help readaptation to club competitions after the World Cup in Qatar, played in the middle of the season
With Argentina celebrating the achievement of the title, one of the most unusual world championships in soccer history ends. Its celebration in autumn, in Qatar, interrupting the national and continental club competitions, has altered the planning and conventional physical preparation of the teams, especially those that contribute the largest number of players to the different national teams. This circumstance and, above all, the post-World Cup, represents a great challenge for physical trainers and medical teams, who must take measures to compensate for that extra effort and competitive stress. José María Silberberg, a surgeon specializing in Traumatology and Orthopedics and who has recently provided services to the Ecuadorian National Team in previous preparation matches for the World Cup, considers that special physical planning is necessary for the players to face the resumption of club competitions with the maximum guarantees. According to his experience and that of the multidisciplinary teams with which he works, the ideal model for athletes consists of specific plans for each individual, according to their specialty or sports discipline, with methodologies for readaptation phases -which will be the case of post-World Cup-, or, in the case of injuries, be supported by state-of-the-art diagnostic technology, innovative and minimally invasive treatments and recovery therapies. At this time of year, all the players who have gone to the World Cup were playing in their respective leagues in both hemispheres, some in the fall season and others in the seasonal to spring, so they arrive at the championship in an exceptional state, and without an excessive workload in terms of the accumulation of matches. In fact, in this World Cup in Qatar 2022 it has been possible to see matches with a very high rate of play. The big question is how the World Cup will affect from now on, when the players return to their clubs of origin. These World Cup minutes have a special weight in the emotional management of each player, as explained by Dr. José Silberberg. In addition, the months of December and April have been described in the literature as the months in which the most injuries are recorded in the club competitions, so you have to be attentive to it, in the opinion of this expert: "For the players who have participated in Qatar, it will be a plus that the technical and medical bodies must handle, although under the individualization of each player, since not everyone will add the same minutes or matches, nor will they be in the same conditions of emotional stress". There will be players who have lived through the World Cup experience and add up all the minutes and others who have barely participated in the matches; those who reach the final rounds, and above all, by quantity, those who have fallen in the group stage or in the round of 16. For this reason, individualized analysis work for each player by doctors, physiotherapists and physical trainers seems crucial, the main objective being the recovery of the players in the shortest possible time.
