Football and medicine have become inexorably bound together as the game has developed over the years – and the medical experts are now a crucial component of any national team or club set-up. They are quite rightly seen as the team behind the team.
UEFA has kept pace with medical developments in football, and this is reflected in the articles that appear in the official UEFA publication Medicine Matters. This publication appears on a regular basis, looking at the countless facets that bring football and the medical world together. From interviews to talking points, from key injury studies to the campaign against doping, Medicine Matters is an essential read not only for the sports medical community, but also for anyone who has this fascinating element of football in mind.
