About.

Dr Andy Franklyn-Miller completed his medical training at Imperial College, London in 1998 before joining the Royal Navy and serving with the Royal Marines. Although he originally commenced on cardiothoracic surgical training, he transferred to Sports Medicine and trained in the UK and Australia as the Royal Navy’s Consultant in Sport and Exercise Medicine.

Bio.

His final post before leaving the Military was as Head of Research and Director of the Centre for Human Performance, Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation at The Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre Headley Court.

Dr Franklyn-Miller has worked as Team doctor to British Olympic Rowing, England Rugby, Melbourne Storm Rugby League and the New Zealand Black Ferns alongside work for UK Athletics. He has appeared on the BBC Breakfast sofa, Radio 5 live, and Irelands Newstalk and RTE television and radio. He is a regular media contributor on athlete preparation, injury prevention and biomechanics and a regular contributor to the BJSM podcast programme.

Bio.

In 2007, he started a research partnership with Dr Eanna Falvey at University of Melbourne, this research has led to over 40 research publications on groin pain, fascial injury, injury prevention and sports medicine anatomy.

They co-wrote Clinical Sports Anatomy, the leading Sports Medicine anatomy text and Andy is an author of Chapters in both “Sports injury prevention and rehabilitation” and the “IOC Manual of Sports Injuries”.
Andy’s current research is focussed on the use of artificial intelligence and mathematical modelling of 3D biomechanical athlete data on algorithms for rehabilitation optimisation in shoulder reconstruction, low back pain, knee injury, ACL-R, osteoarthritis, athletic groin pain and  lower limb overuse injury.

Bio.

He lives in the UK with his wife Shannon and children William, Sienna and Noah, and is Director of Sports Medicine at Irelands leading Orthopaedic Hospital in Dublin “The Sports Surgery Clinic”.

He is a co-founder of Cuneos™️ a entrepreneurship venture in biomechanics. Cuneos is working to bring testing algorithms to a wider audience in sport and health and to athletes in the field.

Approach.

For over two centuries medicine has been based on the principles of William Osler. The foundation of medicine relies on the clinical history and examination of the patient in order to make a diagnosis. Sports & Exercise medicine is a new speciality, and steps on toes of Orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists, cardiologist’s and Respiratory physicians and Rheumatologists but offers an opportunity to create a basis for an integrated approach between all specialities.

Consult.

Less than 5% of our patients are referred for surgery where appropriate and we look after every muscle, joint and limb in the body.

Our role also embraces fatigue, breathlessness, depression, cardiac arrythmias, under recovery and metabolic medicine and of course exercise prescription. There is a reluctance to embrace technology in medicine, due primarily to cost, either to  government or state, insurance companies or the individual. Our practice aims to reduce the costs to the patient by initially focus on the diagnosis and then on the underpinning health and movement block, in innovative ways.

We readily use magnetic resonance imaging to  provided detail in anatomical diagnosis after examination,  but then uniquely by targeting , using 3 dimensional biomechanics, the blocks of kinetics and kinematics – mathematical values of movement, we have almost halved rehabilitation time in athletic groin pain and reduced re-injury post ACL reconstruction to under 2%.

We are continuously embracing health to improve outcomes and the metabolic blocks of glycaemic control, muscle peptides and nutrition, body composition and physical fitness are all the focus of new targets in our approach.

Our approach reduces the number of consultation or appointments you need and gives the control of intervention to you the patient or athletes. We want to see you less..in the nicest possible way…
