The Injury and Rehabilitation theme comprises a multidisciplinary research group focusing on developing and evaluating sports and exercise injury centred evidence-based practice.
The group harnesses the Faculty of Sport, Allied Health and Performance Science’s reputation for research excellence across disciplines including psychology, biomechanics, physiology, and sports medicine to produce:
- Injury defining outputs;
- Pro-active injury prevention strategies through the identification of risk factors, and the development and evaluation of injury screening;
- Reactive injury strategies to advance, validate and expedite injury assessment, management, and return-to-sport strategies.
The research group focus covers expertise in both sexes, the elite through to grassroots level, and youth through to senior age groups in sports and physical activity participation.
