The first Annual Orthopaedic Section Meeting in Orlando was a resounding success and we are excited to present our second Annual Orthopaedic Section Meeting in St. Louis. This is a unique 2-day meeting focusing on the latest clinical strategies in the clinical management of the upper quarter. The format will include lecture and laboratory experiences with outstanding speakers who are experts in their fields and leaders in clinical research. The breakout lab sessions are small in size to allow for hands-on instruction and feedback from the presenters and lab assistants. The general sessions will consist of a panel of speakers who will discuss how to integrate physical therapy treatments to achieve the best outcomes for patients with Upper Quarter dysfunctions. Attendees will have the ability to choose among multiple breakout sessions during both days of the conference. Click here for more details. We hope to see you at the Arch!
