Affilated researcher

I work clinically at the Rehabilitation Centre, Ryhov County Hospital, Jönköping. I am also a teacher at the Division of Physiotherapy. My research is focused on patients with anterior cruciate ligament injuries and reasons for reinjuries.

Anterior cruciate ligament injury and football is not a good combination

In my research I mainly study football players with an anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and the occurrence of reinjuries.

The goal is to find risk factors with the ultimate goal of preventing reinjuries in the future. I also study factors that influence whether the athlete return to sports after injury or not. Another interest is to strengthen rehabilitation after injury and to find functional tests that can be used to evaluate athletes/patients in the clinic so return to sport will be as safe as possible.

I´m teaching at Physiotherapy Programme.
