Dr. Andy Franklyn Miller

Director of Sports Medicine, Sports Surgery Clinic, Dublin

Non-surgical management of athletic groin pain

Next in the line-up is our own Dr Andy Franklyn-Miller, Director of Sports Medicine, SSC.
Andy has extensive experience working in professional sport, as Team doctor to British Olympic Rowing, England Rugby, Melbourne Storm Rugby League and the New Zealand Black Ferns. He qualified from Imperial College London and spent 16 years in the Royal Navy culminating in Director of Research at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre and the Royal Navys only Consultant in Sports and Exercise Medicine.

Andy has over 40 publications on the biomechanics of groin pain, the expedited return to sport following groin injury, exertional lower limb pain and running re-education. He is also the author of Clincial Sports anatomy. His most recent publications around athletic groin pain, examine the anatomical diagnosis in relation to the clinical findings, MRI findings and patient-reported outcome measure. He then related these findings to the biomechanical evaluation of change of direction identifying three clusters of movement patterns. Andy will argue that the anatomical diagnosis matters less than the movement diagnosis in the prescription of rehabilitation, and that resorting to surgical intervention is a misguided attempt at expedition.
