Course Overview

These seminars are designed for physicians, physical therapists, athletic trainers and others who work with athletes. Content will consist of anatomy, mechanisms of injury, diagnostics and assessments, non-surgical and surgical interventions, rehabilitation treatment progression, injury prevention and return to play considerations. Topics will include Upper Extremity with a focus on shoulder and elbow as well as Lower Extremity with a focus on hip, knee and ankle. 


April 18, 2018 – Upper Extremity: Shoulder & Elbow

Arm pain and injuries in sports are common, frequently seen in throwing sports, racquet sports, volleyball and swimming. They can occur as a result of either sudden traumatic or repetitive overuse.


The presenters will cover common sports injuries, surgical and non-surgical interventions followed by treatment considerations including rehab progression, education, prevention of injury and return to play criteria.


October 24, 2018 – Lower Extremity Injuries: Hip, Knee & Ankle

According to research from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, 25 percent of athletic injuries are foot and ankle-related and hip disorders are increasingly recognized as a cause of dysfunction and disability among athletes.


Normal foot/ankle and hip function are fundamental to successful sporting participation. Not only are they important in running-, jumping- and kicking-based activities, they also contribute to the generation and transference of forces in upper limb-dominated activities.


The presenters will cover common sports injuries, surgical and non-surgical interventions followed by treatment considerations including rehab progression, education, prevention of injury and return to play criteria.
