Participation in recreational and organized sports is on the rise. With that comes increased pressure to get athletes back to their sport as quickly and safely as possible. This webinar will 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 on the part 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.
