The Fortius International Sports Injury Conference 2017 (FISIC 2017) was held on 27th and 28th September at the Queen Elizabeth Conference Centre in central London, attracting over 650 professionals in the field of sports and exercise medicine.
Some of the UK’s brightest minds including orthopaedic surgeons, sports physicians, physiothearpists and allied health professionals, gathered to review the latest thinking and best practice in sports injury treatment and management of athletes. For those attending it was a unique opportunity to hear leading experts with international reputations, presenting and debating as multidisciplinary panels.
The theme ‘From Start to Finish’ reflected the 360° approach of the two-day programme, covering topics such as identification and treatment of underlying issues to rehabilitation strategies and return to play. A running theme was the importance of a co-ordinated approach to performance and prevention of injury, as well as talking about the most effective treatments, followed by managed rehabilitation – a smooth and effective baton pass.
