Together with our colleagues at the La Trobe Sport and Exercise Medicine Research Centre, Dr Fortington has recently had several publications on tendon injury accepted, which are now available online. These papers are the result of intensive data collection through the 2016 AFL season, wherein players from 13 clubs provided monthly data on ankle and knee problems they were experiencing, and a series of Ultrasound Tissue Characterisation scans of their Achilles and patellar tendons were performed. The publications focus on injury definitions, pain mapping and links between diagnostic and clinical findings. Full details available at recent publications.
