DJO EDUCATION WEBINAR
Update on biomechanical behavior, conservative and surgical treatment, and Rehabilitation for safe RTS
There is a growing interest in the biomechanical behavior, function, injury mechanism, and rehabilitation of ankle syndesmosis.
Ankle joint injury is often treated with RICE and left to heal on its own. This can lead to future problems due to the biomechanics of the Ankle-Subtalar Complex and the neuromuscular role the joint plays within the lower extremity kinetic chain. New concepts and guideline in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation base on P.O.L.I.C.E. are moving past traditional treatments to reduce post injury complications and speed recovery.
Modern sports medicine work in multidisciplinary teams and focuses on a holistic kinetic chain approach. In this webinar, a panel of foot and ankle surgeon, professor of biomechanic and physiotherapist from Asia, USA and the UK, will share their experience on this topic for improving patient outcome.
