The Centre for Physical Activity and Chronic Disease (PACD) is pleased to welcome Seth O’Neill, Physiotherapy Lecturer and PhD Student at the University of Leicester as presenter for the March Lunchtime Seminar. During this presentation Seth will cover new insights in risk factors for Achilles tendinopathy with a particular focus on physical activity and how this information can guide treatment based on current research.
Seth’s research entitled ‘A Biomechanical Approach to Achilles Tendinopathy Management’ aims to identify prevalence rates of tendinopathy in the UK and develop a greater understanding of risk factors surrounding Achilles tendinopathy. The later stages of this research will develop a new treatment intervention for Achilles tendinopathy. Seth still works clinically and is interested in bridging the gap between research and clinical practice.
The seminar will take place in Sulgrave, Room S138, the University of Northampton.
A sandwich lunch will be provided. For further information and to book a place http://lsmar15.eventbrite.co.uk
