Learning & Performance Objectives

The 13th Annual Sports Medicine Update is designed and implemented interprofessionally by and for physicians and nurses. This live webinar is led by faculty of the Washington University and St. Louis Children’s Young Athlete Center. This course intends to provide current and state-of-the-art evaluation and management of common sports medicine topics for primary care providers and sports medicine professionals. This course is intended for pediatricians, primary care/family practice, sports medicine professionals, physical medicine & rehabilitation physicians, internists, orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, emergency medicine, psychologists, psychiatrists, chiropractors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physical therapists and athletic trainers. Sports medicine specialists employ a multi-disciplinary approach to treating sports injuries and offer non-surgical and surgical treatment as well as minimally invasive procedures to treat a wide range or sports-related medical conditions. Conservative treatment options include a wide range of physical medicine therapies as well as more advanced management plans.

The intended result of the conference is to increase the knowledge, skill and performance of those treating athletes.  At the end of the conference, attendees will be able to:

Review the difficulties associated with satisfying the combined energy needs of growth/development in young athletes.

Review common nutritional myths that are often integrated into the health care system, and how these myths can negatively impact health outcomes in active pediatric populations.

Discuss the management of  Type I diabetes in athletics.

It’s painful and makes simple tasks like opening jars or gripping doorknobs difficult. We’re talking about arthritis at the base of your thumb, and it happens when the cartilage in your carpometacarpal (CMC) joint wears away. Thumb arthritis is common and treatable, and hand specialists Ryan Calfee, MD, MSc, and Lindley Wall, MD, MSc, will discuss how to diagnose CMC arthritis and what treatment options are available to help patients find relief.

Adults can have one of two types of scoliosis: idiopathic scoliosis, which usually begins in adolescence and progresses into adulthood; and degenerative scoliosis, which occurs as a result of age-related wear and tear leading to a curved spine. Not all scoliosis patients require treatment, and even fewer require surgery. Join national leaders Michael Kelly, MD, MSc, and Jacob Buchowski, MD, MS, as they discuss scoliosis in adults and when treatment for spinal deformity is needed.
