Injury prevention and training effects

I am a teacher at the physiotherapy programme with particular focus on physical exercise. In my research I focus on the training effects and implementation of the Swedish neuromuscular training programme Knee Control in youth football. I have also been involved in a project studying effects of resistance training on menopausal symptoms.

Knee Control - a preventive neuromuscular training programme

My thesis covered the training effects and implementation of the Swedish neuromuscular training programme 'Knäkontroll' in youth football. We know that the programme is effective in preventing injuries, but needed to better understand the mechanisms behind this effect. Hence, the effects on performance and jump-landing technique was studied in the first and fourth project in the thesis. To attain maximal effect the programme has to be used and well implemented in the football clubs. The implementation of the programme and strategies for enhancing implementation were also studied in the thesis.  

Knee Control+

As a result of my previous studies we found a need to further develop the Knee Control programme to better fit all players, both the youngest players and senior players. Hence, Knee Control+ was developed adding an extra 30 exercise variations to the 6 main exercises in Knee Control. Now we have an ongoing study on the effects of Knee Control+ on injuries in youth and senior football.

Effects of resistance training on menopausal symptoms

I have also been involved in a study about the effects of resistance training on menopausal symptoms, where I as a physiotherapist and personal trainer guided the women in their training.We found promising results with almost half as much hot flushes in the intervention group after the training period.
