Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 29 marzo 2018

The conference will be held April 14 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at UCLA Medical Center at 1250 – 16th Street in Santa Monica. With an increased number of children participating in sporting activities year-round, awareness of how to prevent and care for injuries in young athletes is more important than ever. With that in mind the Orthopaedic Institute for Children (OIC) will host a special Sports Medicine Conference at UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica on Saturday, April 14.
“Young athletes present unique challenges to athletic trainers due to the repetitive and high strain they put on their bodies during what is often a year-round schedule of sporting activities,” said Richard Bowen, M.D., director of the Center for Sports Medicine at OIC. “This conference has been specially designed to provide certified athletic trainers with the knowledge needed to properly identify unique pathologies in youth athletes. By the end of the day, participants will have an increased understanding of the various treatment methods for pediatric sports injuries.”Conducted by a faculty comprised of physicians and other healthcare professionals dedicated to sports injuries, topics to be covered at the conference include updated treatment techniques for concussions, hip pathologies, ACL grafts, training-related injuries, back pain in athletes, sports nutrition and injury recovery. Breakout session labs will include those focused on shoulder dysfunction, kinesiology taping and core strengthening beyond sit-ups and planks.
OIC’s Center for Sports Medicine is a state-of-the-art facility staffed by a multidisciplinary team, including sports medicine physicians, pediatric orthopaedic surgeons, nurse practitioners, medical assistants, athletic trainers and physical therapists, all focused on helping young athletes return to their sports activities as quickly and safely as possible. The center currently treats nearly 300 children each month – an 18 percent increase in cases over the prior year.“Our team specializes in treating a broad range of today’s athletic injuries before they damage tomorrow’s opportunities,” said Dr. Bowen. “Keeping young athletes in the game is our top priority. The goal of this important one-day seminar is to have as many of the city’s athletic trainers as possible attend.”
