Trauma and Musculoskeletal Health (TraMH)

About us


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 annually.

This research theme focuses on a 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 sports injuries and use of virtual reality

This incorporates investigation of social, psychological and biomedical factors, necessitating an interdisciplinary approach across the group.
