Dr Timmins' thesis looked at whether two-dimensional ultrasound could display anything new in the battle against hamstring strain injuries (HSI), mainly in those with a history of injury, and whether biceps femoris long head (BFlh) architecture alters future injury risk. Dr Timmins implemented a resistance training programme to attempt to change the characteristics which he found to increase the risk of HSI.
BJSM is a multimedia portal for authoritative original research, systematic reviews, consensus statements and timely debate in sport and exercise medicine as well as clinical education and implementation success stories. Each year, the journal recognises the hard work of PhD candidates through the BJSM PhD Academy Awards. PhD candidates and their innovative findings are integral to moving forward, and the awards seek to recognise and celebrate the contributions of younger and emerging leaders.
