Introducing Alex… no not that one, another one.
My name is Alex Alevras, or at Your Health Sport & Spine Alex A… Alex 2… young Alex. And I’ll be sharing with you a bit about who I am and what I do.
Since I was little I’ve always wanted to learn and study the human anatomy. What grabbed my young mind was the puzzle the human body represented and the little we knew of our meat vehicle. This intrigued me. From my curiosity and passion for sport I was began my journey into this learning.
From these beginnings I have since completed a Bachelors of Chiropractic science and a Masters’ in Chiropractic at Macquarie University. In my quest to continue learning I have enrolled in a Masters’ of Research at Macquarie University with the Australian Institute of Health Innovation (AIHI). In this project with the AIHI I will be focused on boxing injury and injury prevention. Over the next few weeks I will be sharing some of the data found in the work by the International Olympic Committee, Macquarie’s leading sports epidemiologist Dr. Reidar P. Lystad and myself. The data retrieved details an interesting story of the: type, severity and location of injuries in competitive boxing at the Olympic games.
To have any time at the competitive levels in any sport is difficult. This is especially the case in boxing as a single round of boxing competition is an accumulation of hundreds of hours dedicated to the sweet science. This is where I hope to take my research, through helping establish best training practice to encourage performance and to reduce injury. I will aim to complete my PhD in this area at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) under my associate supervisor Dr. Michael Drew.
I have known of Your Health Sport & Spine since 2015, where I worked for Alex as a sports trainer and represented his clinic at the Westbrook AFL club. Since then the relationship grew and I saw potential for personal growth and fun with the blunt but well natured Alex F. Working at Your Health Sport & Spine will be fruitful, and I am truly excited to begin my treating journey here in Dural.
From here on out expect social media posts and future blogs on areas of interest. If there is something you’re curious on don’t hesitate to call or come in.
Because your health matters,
Alexander Alevras (Alex A)
