Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions affect over 10 million people in the UK alone, with high social and economic impact and approximately 30 million working days lost per year.
This research theme focuses on the spectrum of topics, including:
- diagnosis and management of sporting injuries
- evaluation of MSK health in patients suffering from long-term conditions across the lifespan
- prehabilitation strategies in cancer patients
- prevention and rehabilitation techniques for sport injuries and use of virtual reality.
This incorporates investigation of social, psychological and biomedical factors and therefore necessitates an interdisciplinary approach across the group.
