Medical Implications of Physically Intervening 

Ignoring the medical implications or the potential for injury when training or discussing physical intervention techniques, even if they are considered low-level applications, can have serious consequences for the well-being of parties. 

Here are several reasons why when it comes the potential, or the, need to use physical intervention techniques it is crucial to consider the medical implications:

- Physical interventions, even at low levels, carry inherent risks of injury. 

- Individuals may have pre-existing medical conditions or vulnerabilities that make them more susceptible to injuries.

- People vary in terms of age, fitness levels, and overall health and acknowledging individual differences is crucial.

- Ignoring medical implications may lead to legal and ethical challenges. 

- To optimise outcomes training whilst minimising injury potential trainers should be aware of how the body responds to different interventions.

- Individuals participating in physical intervention training should be adequately informed about potential medical risks. 

- Knowledge of medical implications allows for the adaptation and modification of techniques to suit different individuals and/or situations. 

Flexibility is essential to accommodate diverse needs and situations without compromising safety.
