|Featured Innovative Cases
We publish cases from our members that we believe
can help improve the practice of sports medicine. We feature cases that communicate:
- Treatment being used in professional sports
- New techniques our members believe are improvements over conventional practices
- Unusual incidents or diagnoses that can help alert members to situations they may encounter
Each case has a related message board to enable you to ask questions or provide specific input.
If you have a case you believe is of interest, please
click here to contact us or submit materials for review. If you are not able to prepare the case yourself, our staff will be happy to draft the case for your review prior to publishing.
