Musculoskeletal Sport Science and Health
This course provides students with further knowledge of the scientific concepts and procedures underpinning sport and exercise related musculoskeletal function, measurement, injury and treatment. It allows students to adopt a multidisciplinary approach to the scientific study of sport and exercise related musculoskeletal health and performance including anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, bioengineering, and kinesiology. Students have the opportunity to carry out in-depth and critical research in selected areas of interest. By the end of the course, students have knowledge and understanding of: the structure and function of the human musculoskeletal system; measurement tools and methods for assessing the musculoskeletal system; common injury mechanisms of the musculoskeletal system, especially those that can occur during sport and exercise; the use of sport, exercise and clinical treatments in rehabilitating and improving the musculoskeletal system. This course is delivered from the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine: East Midlands (NCSEM-EM), based at Loughborough University. The course is delivered in conjunction with The University of Nottingham.
Minimum of an upper 2nd Class Honours degree in a relevant subject, or equivalent professional experience.
Modules: semester 1: orthopaedic biomechanics; neuromuscular function; physiology of exercise and sport; immediate and pre-hospital care of the injured athlete (continues into semester 2); research methods for sport and exercise. Semester 2: basic science and regenerative therapy; emerging technologies for health and wellbeing; motion analysis of human movement; developing computer models for sports biomechanics; sports injury; research project.
