Event Overview
Welcome message:

In the past year, there have been a number of very significant clinical changes that affect the way we diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate sports injuries incurred by elite athletes, weekend warriors, and patients with active lifestyles.


This CME program provides a special and timely opportunity to hear directly from world-renowned physician specialists (physiatrists, orthopedists, radiologists), team physicians and athletic trainers for the Boston Red Sox, Boston Bruins, New England Revolution and New England Patriots, and physical therapists on the cutting edge of rehabilitation about these changes, and how to incorporate them into practice to improve:


Treatment outcomes for acute and overuse injuries of the spine, knee, hip, foot, and ankle, along with upper extremity conditions of the shoulder, neck, elbow, hand, and wrist

The effectiveness and expediency of physical evaluations

Appropriate diagnostic imaging and interpretation

Rehabilitation and return to play

Utilization of physical therapists and athletic trainers

Non-surgical management of injuries

Decisions to refer patients for surgery

Multidisciplinary team-based treatment

Injury prevention

Pre-participation evaluation

Treatment of special populations, including gymnasts, runners, and throwing athletes

REASONS TO ATTEND

Unique to this program is its immersive, fast-paced, 360-degree educational experience. You will learn about changes and advances in sports medicine from three critical, interrelated perspectives:


Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Musculoskeletal Radiology

Orthopedics

Educational highlights include:


The most effective methods, both surgically and non-surgically, to manage injuries to tendons, joints, muscles, and ligaments in athletes vs. non-athletes

When and how to utilize cutting-edge regenerative sports medicine treatments

Updates for joint preservation treatment in the athlete

Advances in the management of sports concussion and methods to facilitate return to play

Practice recommendations to optimize care of the female athlete

Guidance for point-of-care ultrasound for evaluation and treatment of sports injuries

New recommendations for addressing hypertension and risk for acute coronary syndrome in athletes

Best practice in evaluating throwing mechanics to address upper extremity sports injuries

Optimized approaches for interpreting images and making decisions about operative versus conservative management

Updates in best practice using the pre-participation physical evaluation

Clinical strategies to account for age, gender, and patient conditions

Management of chronic tendon disorders

Advances in knowledge regarding the role of vitamin D for health and performance of athletes

The format is engaging and attendees are encouraged to pose questions in sessions and workshops as well as one-on-one with the national and international experts who will be delivering the updates and education at this event.


OPTIONAL SKILLS DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS

You can expand your learning experience by attending one of the following intensive, skills development workshops. The nation’s foremost authorities in four disciplines of sports medicine lead these highly interactive, educational, and hands-on programs:
