I am a naprapath, specialised in sports medicine and a PhD student at MUSIC (Musculoskeletal & Sports Injury Epidemiology Center) at the Institute of Environmental Medicine, Karolinska Institutet.
My research focus on risk factors and prevention of shoulder injuires in adolescent handball players.
My PhD-projekt is based on the Karolinska Handball Study (KHAST) a prospective cohort study aiming to identify risk factors for shoulder injuires in elite adolescent handball players.
In May 2018 we started an RCT to evaluate the effect of a shoulder strengthening program and a knee controll program on risk factors (KHAST 2.0). The study will end in May 2019.
Beside of epidemiological studie I also do research in throwing biomechanics.
I regualry teach approximatly 250 hours pers year in the fields of sports medicine, biomechanics and scientific methods for undergraduates and master students. In addition I teach workshops with a specific focus on the "thrower´s schoulder".
