Irene Van Dyk and team physio

Irene Van Dyk, goal shoot for the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic, is treated by team physiotherapist Fiona Goddard during the ANZ Championship game against the Northern Mystics at Hamilton, on 3 May 2010. Van Dyk was injured in a collision with another player. With the rise of professionalism in sports such as netball and rugby, teams in high-level competitions appointed a wide range of medical staff including doctors, physiotherapists and massage therapists.
