Top sports physio edits BMJ journal

26 February 2015 - 4:44pm

One of the UK’s top sports physiotherapists has guest edited the British Journal of Sports Medicine (BJSM).

Philip Glasgow

Guest editor Philip Glasgow hoped to make it ‘physio month’ for the BJSM

In fact, Philip Glasgow jointly edited two editions of the BJSM with a Swiss physiotherapy colleague, Mario Bizzini. The journal comes out twice a month and both issues will be published in March.

Mr Glasgow said he hoped to make it ‘physio month’ for the BJSM. But his dream is to produce an edition consisting of papers and research carried out entirely by British physiotherapists if he is asked to edit another edition next year.

Mr Glasgow, who has managed elite athletes in a range of sports, said his involvement with the BJSM was evidence of the high regard in which sports physiotherapy was held in the UK. It is the third time he has been a guest editor with the journal.

‘Hopefully it helps to promote the sports physio brand in the broad church that is sports medicine,’ he said.

‘And it allows us to tap into the huge number of followers the journal has, particularly on social media.’

Mr Glasgow, who is head of sports medicine at Sports Institute Northern Ireland, and vice president of Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Sports Medicine (ACPSEM), said: ‘It’s a long and detailed commitment to pull together an issue like this, but it’s a fantastic thing to be involved with and I think this is our best issue so far.’

He will be a key speaker at the ACPSEM’s biennial conference, to be held in Brighton in October. The conference’s theme will be ‘the young athlete’.
