Sports science is a subject that has become more and more popular over the last few years. To be able to have an in-depth understanding of the science around sport and the way that the body moves, allows us to get the best performances out of our sportsmen and women, help them to prevent and recover from injuries, and also help other people who aren’t necessarily sportsmen or women to deal with injuries that they have sustained.
