In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I have the pleasure in speaking to 1st Team Sports Scientist at Everton Football Club, Matt Taberner. Matt has been at Everton for quite a few years now and has recently moved into a more late stage rehab role, which as you will hear in this episode, is a real passion of his. Matt also worked under previous podcast guest, Steve Tashjian and comes with a great recommendation!

In this episode, you will learn –

  • Who is Matt Taberner (background, experience, and current role)?
  • Monitoring – Why? What? The A:C ratio
  • Return to play
    • Benchmarking
    • Key considerations
    • GPS
    • Objective testing
  • Examples of Hamstring rehabilitation
