Musculoskeletal and physiological profile of elite and recreational surfers: injuries and sports specific screening

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis

Abstract

The general aim of this thesis was to create a screening tool encompassing specific musculoskeletal and physiological tests to be utilised in a surfing population. Therefore, an understanding of injury in the sport of surfing was needed to guide the direction of the surf specific screen. This thesis provides clinicians with a surf specific screen which involves a series of reliable and surf specific physiological and musculoskeletal assessment techniques to be used individually or together.
