aspetar conference

Please join us in November for the Aspetar International Conference – The Complete Guide to the Athletic ACL, as well as the Advanced ACL Workshop

This is the only international conference dedicated to ACL Rehabilitation, with an international faculty of world experts in ACL rehabilitation who will focus on key factors associated with ACL rehabilitation such as biomechanical testing and analysis, development of strength and power, running and change of direction, on-field rehabilitation, recovery, sleep and nutrition. The conference will provide plenty of interactive sessions with case-study presentations and discussions with the experts.

The Advanced ACL Workshop is a “hands on” educational activity provided by Enda King and our highly skilled Aspetar ACL Rehabilitation team. It will cover aspects of injury mechanisms, assessment methods and discuss the factors that need to be assessed. It will also provide valuable information on exercise selection and prescription, as well as discussions on important factors affecting the return to play decisions.
