2018 SASMA Conference

2018 SASMA Conference

The 2018 SASMA Conference was held on Sunday 17th June at the Adelaide Oval. The theme of this year’s conference was “Exercise and Medicine”. We had over 100 delegates in attendance at the conference along with regional, interstate and overseas members logging in via the live webcast.

The day started with the Hamstring Updates Presented by Dr Geoff Verall and Dr David Opar, where we looked at strategies for hamstring injury prevention and current controversies, this was a great start to the day.

The rest of the morning involved another session based on the topic ‘is sports always good for you?’ Where discussion took place about the Psychology of youth Competitive Sport and ACL progression and reconstruction.

The afternoon saw delegates split off to take part in workshops before the day concluded with a time to network at the end of the day.
