THE founder of the Sports Injury Sports Medicine Clinic (SISM) in Castlebar, Martin McIntyre, has been invited to present his recent PHD research from John Moore’s University, Liverpool at the Scandinavian Sports Medicine Congress to be held in Copenhagen in February 2022.
The Belmullet native, who is a member of the International Federation of Sports Medicine and presented some initial findings at FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence - The Future of Football Medicine Conference, held in the home of Barcelona FC Nou Camp, presents his knowledge and expertise in the area of hamstring injuries.
The well-known GAA coach has stepped down from his role as manager of the Breaffy senior football team in order to prepare for the Congress next spring.
In his one season in charge, Breaffy were joint winners of the Senior County League, before bowing out of the senior championship at the quarter final stage to his native Belmullet.
Supported by Connacht GAA, Martin McIntyre showcases the development and commitment in leading the way in Sports Medicine and injuries in Gaelic Football. Hamstring injuries account for over 60% of all muscle injuries in the game, of which 70% occur whilst running and the research strives to protect and prevent players from hamstring injuries and detect those at risk.
Martin has over 20 years’ experience successfully working with inter-county football teams like Kerry, Roscommon and, most recently, with the Mayo senior footballers.
