Attention: Team Physicians, Certified Athletic Trainers, Physical Therapists, Primary Care Sports Medicine Physicians, runners of all skill levels and outdoor enthusiasts.
Columbia Sports Medicine is presenting another free live webinar on Tuesday September 5 at 8PM that is perfect for you – The Science of Running: How to Stay Healthy and Optimize Performance.
Recreational and organized sports participation is on the rise. The pressure to get athletes back to sport as quickly and safely as possible continues to increase. This course will serve to highlight important topics in sports medicine that are experienced at the highest levels on a daily basis. The management of athletic injuries is under constant debate, often needing to decide between conservative and surgical intervention. Good judgment of the sports provider is vital as management decisions are usually tailored to the individual athlete. Optimal management of these injuries is essential to an athlete’s career. Understanding the etiology, diagnosis, surgical, and non-surgical modalities are the key elements of a successful treatment plan.
The webinar will be moderated by T. Sean Lynch, MD with a panel that includes Christopher Visco, MD (Common Running Injuries: What Can You Train Through and How Can You Prevent Them?), Colleen Brough, PT, DPT, MS, OCS (Gaining That Extra Edge: What Can a Running Analysis Do For You?), Thomas Bottiglieri, DO (The Fountain of Youth: The Promise of Biologics for the Running Athlete), Elan Goldwaser, DO (Cutting Edge Training Techniques: Tools the Experts Use), Natasha Desai, MD (Rest Better to Run Faster: Recovering Like a Pro), and Fiona Nugent, MS, FNP-BC (P.R. your Marathon: Running Coaches’ Secrets to Success).
