6 KEY TALKS… 6 KEY SPEAKERS
FOLLOWING AN OPENING WELCOME THE 2ND SPORTS MEDICINE CONFERENCE FEATURES INSPIRING, INSIGHTFUL PRESENTATIONS FROM INDUSTRY LEADERS PROVIDING VALUABLE INSIGHTS AND LEARNINGS WITHIN ELITE SPORT.
STEM CELL THERAPY: WORTHY OR WORRISOME?
DR LEE KAPLAN
The field of regenerative medicine offers many biological features attractive to the healing of athletic injuries. The delivery and composition of the biologic treatment given are still being evaluated. The true indicators of success of regenerative medicine treatments will come from the evaluation of bioindicators as markers. Dr Kaplan will review the field of epigenetics and biomarkers in a way which is familiar and salient to the clinician involved in sports medicine.
CRYOTHERAPY FOR RECOVERY: MORE THAN JUST AN ICE BATH?
DR ROBIN THORPE
Dr Thorpe will talk about the use of cryotherapy in its various forms and how this has been used to enhance recovery after training and match time in elite footballers. He will link this with some of his research into measuring match activity variables and markers of fatigue status.
PHE (SCREENING) IN FOOTBALL: IS THE PROGNOSIS GOOD?
In professional football and other elite sports, medical and performance screening of athletes (also termed periodic health examination or PHE) is common practice. Tom will present results for his published review on PHE in Football. He will outline what screening can do in terms of prediction, explain why the broader concept of prognosis may be more relevant to professional athletes and highlight how statistics can improve healthcare delivery in elite sport by evaluating PHE/screening practices and developing prognostic models.
PLASMA RICH PLATELET INJECTIONS FOR TENDON AND MUSCLE INJURIES. PRP IS POSSIBLE, BUT IS IT PLAUSIBLE?
DR ROBERT-JAN DE VOS
Dr. de Vos will explain the biological mechanisms of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and its efficacy in treatment of muscle and tendon injuries in athletes.
REHABILITATION FOR ACUTE MUSCLE TEARS. BACK IN 3 WEEKS?
Neil will present a season’s muscle injury data, key diagnostic points and pertinent rehabilitation processes that inform treatment progression and return to play.
BLOOD FLOW RESTRICTION THERAPY: LET’S PUT THE SQUEEZE ON MUSCLES.
DR JEREMY LOENNEKE
Dr Loenneke will explain how the application of blood flow restriction can be used to increase muscle size and strength. He will highlight methodological advances being made with this technique in the laboratory and will discuss how this knowledge can be translated into sport and clinical practice.
