Young athletes might be at an increased risk to develop tendinopathy. Find out how muscle-tendon unit adaptation during maturation and athletic training influences it

LSBU's Sport and Exercise Science Research Centre will be hosting a guest lecture by Prof Adamantios Arampatzis (Humboldt-University Berlin) about the imbalanced muscle and tendon adaptation during adolescent athletes and its contribution to the risk of tendinopathy.

Prof Arampatzis, a world-leading expert in the field of plasticity of the musculoskeletal system and neuro-muscular control of human locomotion, will present the most recent findings from their research group investigating the question how athletic training increases the risk of developing imbalances between muscle and tendon during adolescence.

The timely lecture will provide researchers, scholars and practitioners from the field of sports the latest information about the possible reasons for the development of tendinopathies in adolescent athletes and ways to facilitate tendon adaptation and thus restoring the balance of muscle and tendon development in athletes. Furthermore, the event gives a unique opportunity for open discussions about tendon adaptation and dysbalances within the muscle-tendon unit with the invited expert.
