Background Achilles tendinopathy (AT) is a common overuse injury in running-related sports where patients experience pain and impaired function which can persist. A graded rehabilitation program has been successful in reducing pain and improving function to enable a return to sport. The aim of this study is to compare the effectiveness of a criteri...
Background/objective: Barriers and facilitators of exercise maintenance and residual effects of exercise training intervention on physical and cognitive function after the cessation of training are inadequately described in older adults. Design and setting: One year after the cessation of a supervised exercise training intervention, a mixed meth...
BACKGROUND o The role of resistance training (RT) in endurance running performance remains a topic of debate among athletes, coaches and sports scientists. o There is strong evidence to support the inclusion of RT in the training program of endurance runners 1,2,3 , but few studies detailing knowledge and practices. Objective: To explore the practi...
Background To date, research investigating the training habits and practice of resistance training among elite distance runners as well as training factors relating to injury, has been sparse. Objective To investigate the typical training of Irish distance runners and self-reported injury incidences over a previous two year period. Design Mixed m...
The aim of my PhD is to study runners with achilles tendinopathy and measure tendon and ankle joint stiffness, responses to exercise interventions and quantify changes in strength, stiffness, running economy and rehab outcome measures.
This project will explore the coach education experiences and learning behaviours of high performance distance running coaches. The study will also examine their engagement with sports science and medicine and their interaction with a multi-disciplinary team.
