SPORLASTIC GMBH ENJOYS SUCCESSFUL MEDICINE SYMPOSIUM
Under the scientific leadership of Dr Atesch Ateschrang, Chief Physician of the Sports Traumatology Department of the BG Unfallklinik Tübingen, the K3N played host to the 6th Nürtingen Interdisciplinary Joint Symposium hosted by SPORLASTIC GmbH on 23.09.2017.
The event focused on the subject of "The miracle of the shoulder joint", which was discussed by a series of internationally renowned orthopaedic surgeons, trauma surgeons and physiotherapists.
The successful series of events from previous years was continued with around 200 participants. "This highlights the now significant role of the event series and the focal topic", says Torsten Schweizer, Head of Marketing and Authorised Signatory at SPORLASTIC GmbH.
Speakers delivered impressive presentations, providing a compact overview of the anatomy and biomechanics of the shoulder joint and state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment concepts for specific pathologies of the rotator cuff, as well as treatment algorithms for treating shoulder instability. Two workshops on the treatment of shoulder injuries with kinesiotapes and shock waves brought the programme of events to a close.
The interdisciplinary dialogue was extremely intense, thanks to the lively debate between speakers and also during the breaks in-between. The scientific programme clearly reflected the topicality and complexity of the options associated with shoulder treatments.
The scientific leader, Dr Atesch Ateschrang, stressed how crucial the interdisciplinary collaboration between physicians and physiotherapists as well as orthopaedic technicians is for devising personalised treatment plans. “When it comes to using bandages and orthotics especially, this is of great importance for safeguarding a patient's treatment success,” said Dr Atesch Ateschrang.
For the autumn of 2018, SPORLASTIC has announced the 7th symposium in the series.
