Annual symposium on ACL injuries relocates to Ohio State University

The Ohio State University Sports Medicine and Cincinnati Children’s Sports Medicine Biodynamics Center will host the 9th Annual ACL Workshop on October 22 in a new location: the OSU campus in Columbus, OH.

The symposium offers laboratory and clinic-based risk screening experience with hands-on workshops relating to anterior cruciate ligament injury prevention, lectures on the latest advances in the field, and demonstrations in OSU’s 3D human performance lab. Some specific topics include appropriate timing of ACL injury prevention, screening tests to target at-risk  athletes, and evidence-based interventions for surgical and conservative ACL injury management.

Traditionally the workshop has been held at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Its relocation to Columbus follows the 2010 appointment of ACL injury expert and workshop organizer Tim Hewett, PhD, as director of research for OSU Sports Medicine. Hewett remains a professor of sports medicine at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital; the workshop will feature speakers from both institutions.

The symposium is approved for 8.5 hours of continuing education credits for physicians, athletic trainers, physical therapists, and allied health care professionals.
