State of the Art Soccer Medicine 2019 - An Update from Kids to the MLS
This is recorded content from the State of the Art Soccer Medicine 2019 - An Update from Kids to the MLS event held in Miami Beach, FL in September, 2019. Soccer is the most popular sport in the world. Increased competition and pressure at earlier ages demonstrate the need for cutting edge support and treatment. Today, parents and coaches rely on you to treat injuries and give advice on safely returning to play. This one-of-a-kind learning experience includes solutions for the management of the soccer athlete’s health in the short and long term to protect the player on and off the field. Our sessions go beyond medical and surgical treatments to include topics related to advanced performance technology, injury prevention, and talks associated with treatments specific to age, competitive level, and gender.
Upon completion of this educational activity, learners should be able to:
