The research at SORC-C is centered around prevention, diagnostics and treatment
of musculoskeletal problems related to physical activity, specifically the
optimization of arthroscopic surgery.
Primary research areas:
Shoulder impingement and luxation of the AC-joint
Hip impingement and groin pain
Patellofemoral pain, dysplasia and instability
Trochlea dysplasia, meniscus injuries, ACL injuries and cartilage damage of the knee.
Acute and subacute muscle-tendon injuries in the lower limb
The research units strive to answer the questions:
Where is interface between surgical and non-surgical treatment?
Who should not receive surgical treatment, and what is the alternatives in such cases?
This is achieved by:
Optimize pre-surgical interventions, that can potentially treat the problem without surgery
Increased and focused physical activity in patient
Reduce sequelae following arthroscopic surgery, by delaying or avoiding onset of osteoarthritis
Ensure that patients achieve their pre-surgical level of participation and quality of life
SORC-C was appointed by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to the IOC
Research Center in the period 2015-2019, and again 2019-2023.

In addition, SORC-C is included in two
clinical academic groups in the research collaboration Copenhagen Health
Science Partners at the Capital Region of Denmark and the University of
Copenhagen: CAG ROAD and CAG imPAct.
