Research forms an important part of my work. I am currently developing an optimised physiotherapy programme for treating people with Tennis Elbow as part of a Doctoral Fellowship funded by the NIHR and CSP Charitable Trust.
I continue to evaluate outcomes for the Derby Shoulder Instability Rehabilitation Programme and have been site Principle Investigator for several large UK research trials:
- The GRASP Trial (Oxford University) investigating physiotherapy and steroid injections for rotator cuff tendinopathy
- The RaCeR Trial (Keele University) assessing early activity after rotator cuff repair
- The ARTISAN Trial (Warwick University) looking at rehabilitation after shoulder dislocation.
I was also a member of the independent trial steering committee for UKFroST, the largest UK study of treatments for Frozen Shoulder.
