We write blogs on all things “sports medicine” as a way of keeping our knowledge and understanding up to date. We both enjoy learning and as a result, helping others learn. We try and vary our blogs as much as possible, trying to appeal to experienced sports medicine professionals and aspiring ones, discussing topics relevant to physiotherapy and strength & conditioning. We hope you enjoy!
