Centre for sport exercise and osteoarthritis

Arthritis Research UK Centre for Sport, Exercise and Osteoarthritis logoThis centre is based at the Nottingham Universities Hospitals NHS Trust in conjunction with the Universities of Oxford, Southampton, Bath, Loughborough, Leeds and University College London. The consortium is strengthened by several international collaborators, utilising expertise from Sweden, The Netherlands, Australia and USA.

This centre brings together experts in sports medicine and osteoarthritis, to understand the relationship between exercise, sport, injury, rehabilitation and osteoarthritis.

Research at this centre is focussed on gaining better insight into the development of osteoarthritis following sport and exercise injury and the risk factors associated with this. The research aims to provide everyday exercisers, recreational sportsmen and sportswomen, and elite athletes with up to date, evidence-based advice and information about taking part in sport and exercise so they can reduce their risk of injury and development of osteoarthritis.
