Load monitoring in athletes was the agenda for the annual NSWIS Medical Conference, held in the Ian Thorpe Theatrette on Saturday 18th November with the strong involvement of the Sydney Sports Medicine Centre.
In attendance were industry professionals from the sports medicine field including doctors, physiotherapists and massage therapists from the network of providers in New South Wales including the Sydney Sports Medicine Centre which was well represented.
Injury prevention and performance optimisation were key topics presented by speakers from the NSW Institute of Sport staff and network of providers, including David Young, Emma Millett and Steve Adams.
NSWIS Medical Director Dr Corey Cunningham welcomed guests to the NSW Institute of Sport and was thrilled with how the conference turned out.
