Sports Medicine Australia is thrilled to be continuing the professional development initiative ‘Queensland Emerging Leader Series’. This series aims to cover a broad range of academic and practical topics surrounding sports medicine while highlighting the next generation of sports medicine professionals and their work where each month will cover a different topic. This series is ideal for students, sports trainers and sports medicine professionals looking to expand their industry knowledge. 

Join us on Monday 24 January from 6:30pm (AEST) for the first event back for 2022 where we will be joined by Dr Robert Buhmann as he presents ‘Return to play considerations following hamstring strain injury – neuromuscular inhibition in the context of hamstring injury and how to restore activation during rehabilitation’

Dr Robert Buhmann is a lecturer in Motor Control and Learning at the University of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia and has worked as a strength and conditioning coach at a Professional level. During this interactive webinar Dr Buhmann will discuss chronic deficits in strength and voluntary activation that have been observed following hamstring strain injury. There will be an opportunity to have Q&A with Dr Buhmann during the event. 

This event is free for SMA Members and $25 for Non-Members.

Speakers

Dr Robert Buhmann is a lecturer in Motor Control and Learning at the University of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia and has worked as a strength and conditioning coach at a Professional level. His doctorate was undertaken in the field of exercise physiology at the Queensland University of Technology and investigated the neuromuscular function of the Hamstring muscle group following Hamstring strain injury.

Robs specialist knowledge includes sports injury rehabilitation, neurophysiological adaptations to injury and exercise, neurophysiology research methods, the control of human movement and resistance training. Rob maintains an affiliation with the QUT Hamstring strain injury research group and has additional research interests in optimising rehabilitation for injury and neuromuscular adaptations to different modes of exercise.
