De Veres, 7 Holborn Bars
All Consultant Sport & Exercise Medicine Physicians at Pure Sports Medicine are on the General Medical Council’s (GMC) specialist register and have attained the milestone of Fellowship of the UK Faculty of Sport & Exercise Medicine. We have also invited 2 eminent keynote speakers; Mr Simon Lambert & Mr Alexander Montgomery to speak on cutting edge developments in their respective specialties.
Sport and Exercise Medicine (SEM) was officially recognised as a medical specialty in the UK in 2005. It became apparent in the 21st century that there was a clear need to manage musculoskeletal and lifestyle-related conditions (e.g. physical inactivity, obesity) in a more coordinated fashion. With the award of the 2012 Olympic Games to London, this led to the momentum and recognition of SEM in its own right. The historical roots of SEM actually goes back much further but this official recognition was without doubt a very significant move and a major step forwards.
SEMM is uniquely placed to promote and manage exercise and musculoskeletal issues in patients with co-morbidity- a vital part of our training and workload. At a time of global obesity and large scale physical inactivity, we need to remember our role in promoting physical activity and the concept of ‘exercise as medicine’ at every opportunity.
The inaugural SEMM study day has been designed to reflect the broad spectrum of what SEM has to offer. Topics are deliberately varied and range from the use (or not) of injection therapies in tendinopathy; medical masqueraders in musculoskeletal medicine to be aware of; mental health pathology and relative energy deficiency in sport (known previously as the female athlete triad).
The breadth of the study day also covers paediatric and adolescent sports injuries; pathologies seen on diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound in clinic; endurance event medicine planning and preparation; management of common presentations such as back pain and how we collaborate with the patient to incorporate physical activity into the management plan. We would love to see you there!
Topics will include:

This event has been awarded 5.5 CPD points by the Faculty of Sport & Exercise Medicine (UK)
