Proximal Hamstring Tendinopathy Research
This is a research project I carried out with my fellow Athletic Training Student, Chandler Copeland (now fellow certified athletic trainer), from the fall semester of 2016 to the spring semester of 2017. I will not dive too in depth into explaining the research because I hope the materials below (video, PowerPoints, and visual) will help you to understand the purpose of the research. It is important to note that this research began as an assignment in an Advanced Strength and Conditioning Course before we decided to run with it as a major project. The information below is in order of the most recent work we have done. The video and PowerPoint are from Ampersand Day (2017) which is an annual day of research presentations at our college. We have also created a quick visual for a secondary project that illustrates part of our research. Before watching the video I must tell you that if you are in the field of sports medicine or any other healthcare field this research was presented in front of a diverse crowd (not all athletic training students, pre-health students, etc.) and, as such, we had to slow down and explain some things that may seem simple to some of you with knowledge of anatomy, therapeutic rehabilitation, biomechanics, strength and conditioning, and kinesiology. We were also limited to a 15-20 minute presentation so we did our best to condense the (many) pages of data we had. I hope you enjoy!
