More than 650 delegates and speakers attended the Fortius International Sports Injury Conference (FISIC ‘15) in central London on 13th and 14th October, 2015. They gathered to review the latest thinking and best practice in performance sports injury treatment and management of return to play for athletes.
The programme attracted orthopaedic surgeons, sports physicians, physiotherapists and other sports and exercise professionals, offering a unique opportunity to hear leading experts with international reputations, who presented and debated as multi-disciplinary panels.
Amongst the delegates were 70 members of World Rugby’s top medical teams who came to debate and learn more on the current medical issues and hot topics within their sport from concussion, to management of return to play. The event was timed to coincide with a brief interlude in play before the Quarter Finals, and gave team medical personnel a unique opportunity to participate in a world-class, multidisciplinary congress.
As well as rugby relevant subjects, the varied programme covered a wide range of topics, including joint specific sessions with more technical content, overviews of more specialist areas such as disability sport or the adolescent athlete, presentations of the latest science on muscle injuries & repair, bone health and cell therapies, and debates on the merits of PRP injections.
On 13th October, running alongside the main sports injury conference, is a specific GP programme covering musculoskeletal conditions and injuries commonly seen in a regular GP practice, by recreational athletes as well as inactive individuals. The topics ranged from ‘The Role of The Sports Physician’ to the ‘Examination for Patellofemoral Pain – Tips and Tricks’, from ‘Hand Injuries with a Normal X-Ray’ to ‘Low Back Pain – the Really Important Things to Exclude’.
