A University of the Sunshine Coast exercise expert will present a public lecture on Friday 8 May on a topic that is close to the heart of every athlete – avoiding injury.

USC Sport’s Fitness Facilities Supervisor Aaron Turner will discuss the interventions that athletes can use to reduce their risk of non-contact injury.

He will also outline common non-contact injuries in sport and the factors that increase the risk of sustaining them.

Mr Turner’s presentation will be held at the USC Sports Stadium recreation room from 5.30-6pm as part of USC’s ‘Friday Night Sport Talks’ series.

Mr Turner is a USC graduate who has worked in the health and fitness industry since 2003, including as an exercise physiologist in rehabilitation clinics at Noosa Private Hospital’s Chronic Pain Clinic and at a Cardiac Rehabilitation Clinic run by USC and Queensland Health.

He specialises in clinical rehabilitation, strength and conditioning, and his current research interests include joint range of motion and dynamic balance.

The Friday Night Sport Talks are aimed at people aged 13 and up but are open to anyone with an interest in sport, health and well-being.
