Sports Medicine – is the future behind us?

Elite athletes have access to appropriate screening; treatment for injuries and rehabilitation. The sub elite, academy players and recreational athletes usually access the NHS which has limited capacity for screening (serious conditions are missed) and limited understanding of different sports disciplines (especially overuse injuries).

Effective sports medicine requires an infrastructure which is currently found in partnerships between sports physicians and university departments of sport and exercise science. One such partnership exists at the University of Glamorgan. The lecture will show how the partnership contributes to both clinical services and knowledge generation.
