Football Medicine® physiotherapist – Paulo Barreira – has been hired by Arsène Wenger to join the Medical Department…
A Sports Medicine team that has been gathering expertise in Football related Sports Medicine over the years, constituted by one Sports Medicine Physician and two Physiotherapists, present medical staff of the Al Jazira Sports Club – Abu Dhabi.
The main branch of this team is its work in a Football club setting, developed according to our Sports Medicine intervention standards, applying our knowledge and expertise to several domains in this sport: rehabilitation, return to field and injury prevention strategies development.
Currently Sports Medicine in a professional Football setup is still subject to dogmas and some lack of available information, leading often to uncontested clinical practices based on individual perception and experimentalism, rather than resulting in objective and scientific rationale. We believe that much should be improved regarding the sharing of the medical knowledge especially among elite football medical teams, reason why we decided to build this website. Its main aim is to share our daily work and academic activities, as well as promote the interchange of information between medical and sports science professionals currently working or passionate by Football, addressing various contents related to medical, rehabilitation, fitness and injury prevention.
