Bridging the Gap

Claire Minshull Sports

Evie and Claire from discuss Claire’s professional background and why she founded Get Back to Sport.

In this chat, Claire talks about her background as a Rehabilitation and Conditioning Specialist, and the mis-match she noticed between strengthening programmes for “healthy” people as compared with rehabilitation programmes for clinical populations. Claire explains how Get Back to Sport was born of this mismatch.

“A lot of things that we took for granted in sports science and sports medicine and performance…. were not being translated into physiotherapy rehabilitation.”

We discuss Claire’s research into the management of knee osteoarthritis, the issue of inadequate or ineffective strengthening interventions for people with OA, and the principles of muscle training as applied to the pelvic floor muscles. More about Dr. Claire Minshull.
