The last couple of years have proven, if there was any doubt, that the world of medicine can adapt extremely fast to a dynamically changing landscape. With global events still having impacts that are felt within sport, it’s clear that our industry must continue to rely on the resilience and flexibility that’s been so very evident.

Here are some of the research and articles that caught our attention in February.

But we’re relieved to have it on good authority that some things are not age-related.

This is, a Jolly Good Question…
