Arsenal SEM 2016: Load, Injuries and Determination.

On the 22nd March 2016, Xanni von Guionneau and I were fortunate enough to attend ‘Marginal Gains in Sports Medicine’, a conference held at the Emirates Stadium in London. The event was run by the Arsenal FC Sports and Exercise Medicine team; with their own members Dr Gary O’Driscoll, Mr Colin Lewin and Mr Shad Forsythe amongst the speakers.  arsenal_logo

Xanni and I wrote up our learning points from the event, covering these topics:

Load Management; How to prevent injuries and promote sustainable sporting careers by monitoring Load with simple measures and technologies.

Psychological aspects of “Return To Play”: How can different players with similar injuries have vastly different recovery times and rates of burn-out?

An analysis of “Determination”. What are the factors that makes a player great?
