Seth is a Physiotherapy Lecturer and PhD Student at the University of Leicester. Seth is currently undertaking a PhD entitled ‘A Biomechanical Approach to Achilles Tendinopathy management’ within this Seth has identified prevalence rates of tendinopathy in UK runners and developed a greater understanding of risk factors surrounding Achilles tendinopathy. His later work has completed a more in-depth analysis of how tendinopathy affects the Plantarflexors. This has focussed on how the strength and endurance is affected and which of the Plantarflexors is most involved. This work has highlighted the involvement of the Soleus. His current work is attempting to understand how important this may be in the development and treatment of tendinopathy. His long term aim is the development of a more optimal rehabilitation strategy for tendinopathy.
Seth still works clinically and is interested in bridging the gap between research and clinical practice as part of this Seth has done two Physio Matters podcasts available on iTunes -session 6 and 11 on https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-physio-matters-podcast/id785762010?mt=2 :
