About Dr Andy Franklyn-Miller
Dr Andy Franklyn-Miller was a rowing coach first and doctor second. With successful crews at Henley Royal Regatta and Junior World Championships his understanding of coaching and medicine is unique. He completed his medical training at Imperial College, London in 1998 before joining the Royal Navy and serving with the Royal Marines. He commenced surgical training but transferred to sports medicine and trained in the UK and Australia as the Royal Navy’s Consultant in Sport and Exercise Medicine. His final post before leaving the military was as Head of Research and Director of the Centre for Human Performance, Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre Headley Court.
Dr Franklyn-Miller has worked as team doctor to British Olympic Rowing, England Rugby, Melbourne Storm Rugby League and the New Zealand Black Ferns alongside working for UK Athletics, Australian Open Tennis and World Swimming Championships. He has appeared on the BBC breakfast sofa and Radio 5 live on numerous occasions discussing athlete preparation, injury prevention and injuries to leading athletes and is a regular contributor to the BJSM podcast programme.
In 2007 Dr Franklyn-Miller formed a research partnership with Dr Eanna Falvey when both were working at University of Melbourne. This research has led to the creation of the Sports Surgery Clinic Sports Medicine Research Program in 3D Biomechanics and Athletic Groin Pain research. They co-wrote Clinical Sports Anatomy, the leading sports medicine anatomy text. Dr Franklyn-Miller’s professional interests include sport injury, unexplained underperformance in athletes, chronic groin pain, lower limb overuse injury, and the management of high performance load and recovery alongside the biomechanics of running for performance.
His work in marginal gain analysis and performance training and recovery has led to him advising a number of clubs worldwide on departmental review and individual programming for time zone travel, load monitoring and recovery.
Conference Presentation: Marginal Gains: An integrated approach to Athlete and Club Performance
Andy will explore the interaction between Coaching, Medical, Conditioning and sport science requirements of players and clubs. He will discuss the concepts of marginal gains and highlight common misconceptions, financial and physical risks in following trends in performance and athlete monitoring and the need for structured management of performance departments. He will apply military risk management strategy to performance and give scientific background to current trends.
After this presentation conference participants will:
- Have received a summary of key areas to identify marginal gain in athletic performance and medical management
- Understand how to identify sports science risks and balance performance gains whilst identifying performance goals
- Learn how to review current trends in performance and critically appraise their usefulness
- Friday, 25 October 2013, 3PM – 4:30PM AEST (UTC +1000)
