in May 2016, the ESMA (European Sports Medicine Associates) was established as a new section of ESSKA (European Society of Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy).
The aim of the section is to bring together the various disciplines of sports medicine including surgeons, sports-doctors, physical therapists, sports scientists, coaches and others.
On 3-4 November 2017, the first ESMA Open Meeting will take place in Munich, Germany.
The main topics of this meeting will be:
Health aspects of sports
Stop sports injuries – Prevention in sports
Therapy of sports injuries
Back to sports
We are proud to announce that many leading figures from the world of sports medicine will take part in the Meeting and will present their experience in specific sports.
For each topic we have invited an international expert to give a key note lecture: Henrique Jones (Portugal), Daryl C. Osbahr (USA), Karl-Peter Benedetto (Austria), Stefano Della Villa (Italy).
Dr. Osbahr (USA) the chair of the AOSSM STOP outreach committee will present the “STOP sports injuries” programme which has been successfully established in the US.
In addition to the outstanding quality presentations of international experts there will be various workshops organised in the field of sports medicine.
In line with the ESMA spirit, the meeting is especially designed for all disciplines of sports medicine: Physicians, sport traumatologists, physiotherapists, sport scientists, coaches and sports managers are all welcome to this pioneering meeting and the programme will address topics relevant, and of interest, to all of these disciplines and professions.
We look forward to welcoming you to Munich on occasion of this international meeting of sports medicine.
