Today I speak with Dr. Izzy Moore about the postpartum athlete. She is a reader in human movement and sports medicine at Cardiff Metropolitan University. After completing her PhD at the University of Exeter, where she focused on optimising female running gait, Izzy completed a two-year post-doctoral position at Cardiff Metropolitan University working directly with sports governing bodies to inform injury prevention and management policies.
Izzy’s current research focuses on female athlete health, sports injury epidemiology and lower limb rehabilitation. Her current projects focus on developing injury prevention strategies in the Women’s rugby game, specifically targeting brain and pelvic health, as well as improving postpartum return to sport clinical guidance.
We talk about:

-considering the whole person
