I think you're right that consultancy for EAs could be a good idea.  However I'm not particularly enthusiastic about ergonomics and posture, because I've yet to see strong evidence they prevent pain. Other lines of evidence also suggest that traditional physiotherapy beliefs about back pain and other pain may be misguided.

I think  cardiovascular risk factor reduction (obesity, low physical activity) and proven injury prevention programs such as the FIFA11+ for soccer would be more effective, but less relevant to EAs.

The Medical Mysteries Investigator sounds interesting, and I will keep an eye out for similar jobs.

Thanks very much for your advice!

That's a good idea. I think I would have a low chance of getting the coaching since I don't really have any typical high impact skills, but I think it would be worth a shot.
