We have unique sporting knowledge based on Clinical Experience, Biomechanics and Exercise Physiology. Additionally, through various sporting coverage at an international level it means that we can help athletes achieve precision in their sporting endeavors. Moreover, having participated in numerous sports from a recreational to an elite level means that we understand the dedication and emotional aptitude required to excel and perform. Through post graduate education and clinical research we have an intricate knowledge of pathophysiology and pathomechanics and the use of ‘cutting edge’ assessment and treatment techniques means that we will remain committed to excellence.
In the early 1990’s Martin Krause was involved with research into
- supplementation of Magnesium in the incidence of injury. One of the earliest investigations in this field where we found a reduced incidence of injury and increased sensitivity of therapists ability to detect who was on magnesium orotate versus the placebo.
- supplementation of Multodextrene on the incidence of acute respiratory tract infections. Here we found that supplementation needed to occur within 20 minutes of concluding exercise. Again this was one of the first investigations in this area.
- the effect of Achilles Tendon grafts with the Plantaris tendon on balance using Stabilometry. Inconclusive results but there was a tendency for weight bearing towards the heel.
- the effect of ACL reconstruction on balance using stabilometry. Inconclusive results.
- the effect of McConnell taping on Anterior Knee Pain and Knee Dysfunction. Inconclusive results whilst looking at EMG 'timing' between the VMO and VL. However, some of the functional psychometric questionnaires, using a VAS, suggested significant functional improvement in ascending and descending stairs.
- The effect of Vibration on Quadriceps fatigue in elite Swiss downhill skiers. Significant co-contraction of the hamstrings and quadriceps muscles was induced by vibration which amazingly improved stability in these skiers.
- Cognitive Function above Anaerobic Threshold amongst Swiss elite orienteers. Inconclusive results where 50% of subjects improved their cognitive abilities in the supra-anaerobic domain.
- The effect of overtraining on the menstrual cycle and stress fractures amongst Swiss elite orienteers. Results suggested lack of sunlight and hard frozen surfaces together with a vegan diet increased the incidence of stress fractures.
- The role of the Neurophysiology of Pain and Inflammation in the effect of manaul therapy. One of the first papers to debunk the notion of using the traditional model of placebo controls, as descending modulation of pain and inflammation suggested that engagement of higher cognitive processing is required to maxmise the effects of manual therapy.
In the early 2000’s Martin Krause conducted literature reviews into
- Exercise and Sarcopenia (muscle loss after 30 years of age)
- Exercise and Weight Loss (establishing a dose)
- Exercise and Immune Function (establishing frequency of exercise, nutrition and cognitive processes)
- Biomechanics of uphill cycling (analyzing seated versus standing EMG and kinematics)
- Rehabilitation and Training using Whole Body Vibration (Book published by Elsevier in 2010)
