29 Mar 2017 - Case Study of an Adrenally Fatigued, Nutrient-Depleted Professional Boxer

Overview

I worked with a professional English boxer over a 6-month period as he progressed towards a world title belt. His endocrine and immune systems were severely compromised to start with, meaning very limited recovery and adaptation from training. I identified nutritional imbalances via functional tests and a detailed case history, and completely refreshed his food choices. Additionally, by addressing his life values and lifestyle priorities, along with the inclusion of some carefully chosen high-grade supplements, he returned to his best shape, but in a more resilient way than before; i.e. avoiding exhaustion and illness when he entered the weight taper phase.

05 Apr 2017 - Assessment of Movement Quality: Panacea or False Dawn?

Overview

Assessment of movement quality, often termed ‘movement screening’, is widely used within a variety of sports. Numerous arguments to support such activity exist; however, the evidence base is often limited and contradictory. The purpose of this webinar is to explore the scientific evidence surrounding movement quality and its relationship to injury risk and physical performance. Emphasis will be placed on the logistics of using the various movement screening protocols outlined in current research.

26 Apr 2017 - Investigating and Preventing Sport-related Ankle Sprain Injury

Overview

Ankle sprain is common in sports and therefore it is worth investigating and preventing. The webinar will first cover a series of biomechanics studies on ankle inversion sprain mechanism. This involved a forensic motion analysis on video footages of real injury incidents. The second part will present a wearable anti-sprain system to prevent the injury by monitoring the injury hazard by motion sensors, and preventing it by stimulating shank muscles for very quick corrective motion. Current attempts to modify the device for prehabilitation will also be presented.
