Sports Medicine and Sports Nutrition

What is the physiological load in sport? How does the body react at height? What kind of nutrition do competitive athletes need? What can be done about back pain? How can sports injuries be prevented? The teaching and research area of Sports Medicine and Sports Nutrition deals with these and other related topics.

Sports medicine and sports nutrition are closely related. Sports medicine has an extremely broad range of topics; it includes prevention, therapy and rehabilitation. Sports nutrition helps athletes to improve their performance and supports them during regeneration after exertion. An extremely exciting interplay!

Prof. Dr. Petra Platen, head of sports medicine and sports nutrition

Simulations with dummies, video recordings of movement sequences, eyesight tests or audiometry, blood tests - all this is done in the labs of the sports science department.

From the structure of the body to exercise programmes for different target groups to an introduction to laboratory work: all this is covered by the courses in sports medicine and sports nutrition.

The teaching and research area of sports medicine and sports nutrition has many faces. On this page we introduce ourselves.
