In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Professor at the University of Copenhagen, Kristian Thorborg. I know I say this every week but Kristian has been on my hit list for a long time and it was great to finally line it up and get him on the podcast. Kristian is a world-renowned researcher, most well known for his work in hamstring injuries and it is this area that we chat about in this episode. Kristian had recently edited a book, Prevention and Rehabilitation of Hamstring Injuries alongside some giants of the industry, David Opar and Anthony Shield, both of who have been on the podcast. If you're trying to keep your athletes fit, healthy and on the field or court, you will enjoy this one!

Return to sport protocols post hamstring injury
