Prof. Martin Schwellnus dishes on exercise associated muscle cramping: The CJSM podcast

A panel of experts & contributors to CJSM — Profs. Martin Schwellnus, Stavros Kavouras, Tamara Hew, William Roberts (L to R). ACSM Denver 2017

Exercise Associated Muscle Cramping (EAMC) is the subject of several studies CJSM has published over the last several years.  It is a notorious problem for athletes and for their caregivers.

A world expert on the subject, Professor Martin Schwellnus MBBCh, MSc(Med), MD, FACSM has joined us on the CJSM podcast to discuss his newest contribution to the medical literature in this field.

Dr. Schwellnus is a Professor of Sport and Exercise Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Pretoria and Director: Sport, Exercise Medicine and Lifestyle Institute (SEMLI), University of Pretoria
Director: International Olympic Committee (IOC) Research Centre, South Africa.  I count myself fortunate to consider him a good friend as well — someone I look forward to seeing at conferences such as ACSM or IOC injury prevention.

You can find our podcast conversation at the top of the growing list of CJSM podcasts on our journal website. You can also subscribe to all of the CJSM podcasts on iTunes here.

I praise Prof. Schwellnus for being such a lucid and erudite speaker in this podcast.  And it’s true!!!  You will definitely get a sense of that when you listen to the podcast.  Should you want to hear him yourself delivering a proper lecture, you can, thanks to the glories of social media:  check out this lecture on YouTube on the drug everyone should take!!!!*

*[steady there:  this is sport and EXERCISE medicine 😉  We’ll reserve a discussion about medical marijuana for an upcoming blog post]
