About | Sports Medicine Research - Are we moving forward?

Abstract - Sports Medicine research continues to develop at pace. However, the high incidence of some sports injuries, including the hamstring complex remain with the economic cost of these continuing to rise.

The multifactorial nature of these injuries results in a challenge when transferring key research into sports medicine.

Therefore to bridge the gap between clinical research and practice, advances in treatment and rehabilitation warrant investigation. Paul will discuss his work in relation to the clinical application of hamstring research. He will discuss how the lumbar spine may play a role in hamstring rehabilitation as well as other novel rehabilitation techniques to decrease both the incidence and rehabilitation time of this pathology.

Researcher - Paul is a chartered Physiotherapist and has worked in numerous public, private and sporting environments.

Most recently in professional football during a seven year spell at Sunderland football Club which involved the day to day medical care of elite athletes. As part of Paul's current role as Senior Lecturer in Sport and Exercise he aims to bridge the gap between scientific advances and clinical application.

Please meet in the foyer of the School of Social Sciences, Business & Law (first floor, Clarendon) at 3.45pm for tea and coffee.
