Spring Conference Banner

Date:          Thursday 30th March 2017, 9.00 am to 4.15 pm

Venue:         Keepmoat Stadium, Stadium Way, Doncaster, DN4 5JW

The Event

The conference will focus on The Spine, an anatomical area that frequently provokes apprehension, controversy and a diversity of opinions on how problems with it should be managed.  Whether it is a traumatic and life changing incident that, all too frequently, happens in sport, or a chronic debilitating problem that may affect all sports participants, the breadth of problems and conditions that can occur are extensive.  Consequently, Professor Graham Smith has endeavoured to draw together a multi-disciplinary faculty of speakers that will not only cover the breadth of problems that Sport & Exercise Medicine Practitioners can be presented with, but also give a realistic perspective of how these should be managed clinically and functionally.

The presentations will include:-

  • Recognition of inflammatory causes of spinal pain
  • Lessons from the Inter-Disciplinary Functional Restoration Programme for Chronic Back Pain
  • Recognising and managing lumbar stress fracture: The cricket fast bowler experience
  • Back Pain and the Integrated Community MSK Hub: towards a better model
  • The place of spinal injections in acute and chronic spine pain (Presented by the British Institute of Musculoskeletal Medicine (BIMM))
