Rehabilitation after sports injuries in cooperation with Tag der Sportmedizin der sportärztezeitung & Johannes Fetzer (in German)
Status Quo and current developments in competitive and recreational sports
Every year, the insurance companies count up to 2 million sports injuries in Germany. The diagnosis and treatment of injuries and overuse damage in sports is mainly the field of work of orthopedic surgeons and trauma surgeons. Rehabilitation, the most complete possible restoration of performance, is carried out by physicians and therapists. A good communicative coordination between physicians and therapists is an important aspect for the success of rehabilitation measures. Further aspects that affect physicians and physiotherapists equally are the first measures after an accident, as well as the fundamental avoidance of sports injuries.
The three experts discuss their findings and experiences and pass on important practical advice. The following consultation hour at 11.00 a.m. offers the opportunity to get in contact with the speakers and ask questions.
