Discover the world of sports management through the AISTS Sports Medicine podcast, featuring interviews with leading experts, professionals and academics.

This month’s podcast looks at how psychological factor can influence injuries for top athletes.  Alvaro Abati and Juan Scmitz will take you through the psychological factors that can impact the injuries of top athletes and the type of injuries that could be caused by them, and then analyse whether psychological factors can impact the healing process.  They will provide practical solutions to help athletes recover faster from injuries and look at the use of motor imagery, which is the mental representation of an action without any actual movement.   Find out more here. 

The AISTS Sports Medicine podcast series was created by AISTS Head of Sports Medicine, Dr Boris Gojanovic (@DrSportSante) and are entirely scripted, recorded and produced by participants of the AISTS MAS in Sport Administration programme.
