One main focus of the professorship for sportsmedicine & sportorthopedics and the outpatient clinic is the scientific process of fundamental research questions and also those related to practice. Research focus are topics from health, recreational and competitive sports. We conduct qualitative and quantitative analyses to validate interventions with incorporation of physical activity mainly in a prospective longitudinal section. We examine possible machanisms of the development, the prevention and the treatment of complaints related to physical activity and sports.
