Fernando Belasteguín and his experience with sporting injuries

Fernando ‘Bela’ Belasteguín, the world’s best padel player for 16 years running, tells us about his experience with sporting injuries.

At Equilae we have a lot in common with the Argentine athlete; in addition to him being one of our patients, we’re brought together by the pursuit of excellence and our passion for what we do. We were eager to talk to him about sporting injuries, because we knew he could offer a very interesting perspective.

During the interview, ‘Bela’ tackled some interesting issues: attitudes when facing an injury and the importance of common sense in decision-making, pre- and post-operation procedures, criteria for selecting a surgeon and the importance of rehabilitation.

He’s a shining example of a great athlete and an even greater person. Enjoy!
