We recently had a little Spring Break here at the Sports Medicine Center. No, we didn't head off to Florida for some fun in the sun. This is the time of the year we host our annual Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin Sports Medicine Symposium.
It was a great two days of continuing education from some great guest speakers. This year's lecturers included Dr. Elizabeth Arendt from the University of Minnesota, Dr. Robert Dimeff from the University of Texas, Southwestern, and Paul Reuteman, a physical therapist and athletic trainer from the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse. Combined with our own staff presentations, a lot of great information was offered to a large number of attendees this year.
A good portion of the sessions dealt with hip and knee pain, which is something that we see in the clinic on a regular basis. As always, we were able to come away with some very practical tips on treatment to better address these issues with our patients. I have already been able to incorporate some of the exercises into my patients' programs with good results.
As with other spring breaks, it's great to get back in the clinic more energized with new information and ideas. I'm already looking forward to next year's symposium.
