Our 5th Annual Orthopaedic Section Meeting will be held at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa and Marina in San Diego, California, April 20 – 22, 2017. The focus of this meeting will be on current topics related to the knee, foot, ankle, and shoulder regions. Each day begins with a general session attended by all participants followed by smaller concurrent breakout sessions. Each of the speakers in the general session will lead a breakout session intended to allow case-based, advanced application and hands-on experiences related to the topics presented earlier.

Regarding the lower extremity, attendees will learn about current evidence, examination, and treatment of articular cartilage lesions of the knee, forefoot pain, flat foot deformity, posterior tibialis, and Achilles tendinopathy. A special emphasis will be placed on the implication of these pain problems for walking and running. Regarding the shoulder, attendees will learn about current evidence, examination, classification, and treatment for a variety of disorders described in the Shoulder Pain Clinical Practice Guidelines and return-to-sport rehabilitation following a shoulder injury.

Speakers will present in the morning general session both Friday and Saturday, and lead the breakout sessions to facilitate greater educational continuity. This will afford participants more time for the hands-on lab sessions and enhance the overall experience. Both Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants are invited to attend the 2017 Annual Orthopaedic Section Meeting.

The number of exhibit tables is limited,
so please plan to submit your requests early! 
Exhibit forms must be received on or before March 24, 2017.
