7th Annual Advanced Care of the Young Athlete Symposium

Aurora, CO US
November 18, 2022

Young athletes face unique challenges including overuse injuries and ACL tears at a high rate. Clinicians across disciplines in Sports Medicine will benefit from increased competence and clinical performance in caring for young athletes facing these injuries, including diagnosis, treatment, return to sport and injury prevention.

Over the course of this event, attendees will learn about challenges patients may face in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and how to address these challenges to improve compliance with treatment, particularly in the rehabilitation setting. Attendees will be provided with key features of many different injuries to aid in easier diagnosis and treatment planning if faced with lack of time.
