Shoulder injuries are increasingly common in athletes whose sports involve excessive and repetitive overhead motions as they place frequently repetitive stress on their shoulder joints.
It is our pleasure to welcome you to the 4th Edition of our Aspetar Current Concepts in Doha, Qatar!
Following the success of the previous editions on the Knee, Elbow and Ankle, we dedicated this year’s event on the Athlete’s Shoulder.
Shoulder injuries are increasingly common in athletes whose sports involve excessive and repetitive overhead motions as they place frequently repetitive stress on their shoulder joints. This results in micro trauma and leads to variety of injuries with the most common types of shoulder pathology being instability, impingement syndrome, muscle and tendon injuries, acromioclavicular joint sprain. Sport Physicians, Surgeons and Physiotherapists are all involved in the diagnostic process and managements of shoulder injuries in athletes, working together to allow them to return on the field.
Shoulder injuries remain a diagnostic and treatment challenge for both athletes and clinicians. This prompted us to gather in one place some of the best, world renowned experts in this field to present and discuss the latest updates on the various shoulder injuries in athlete and highlight the clinical implications for their evaluation and treatment.
For this reason we sincerely hope that the Aspetar Current Concept on the Athlete’s Shoulder will both be educational and productive, stuffed with tailored practical lectures, debates and discussion sessions, designed to offer you the opportunity to interact with the experts.
Through the lecture highlights, case discussions and audience interaction, we will provide you with the up-to-date concepts and treatment guidelines for everyday practice of sports related Shoulder pathology.
We have worked towards this exciting 4th edition with the scope in mind to present you a programme that makes your participation both valuable and stimulating.
We look forward to welcoming you.
