What a year 2021 has been for Gymnastics Medicine! During its inaugural year, Gymnastics Medicine delivered nine educational grand rounds webinars to gymnasts, parents, coaches and medical providers throughout the country. Topics ranged from diagnosis, treatment and management of common gymnastics injuries to injury prevention, optimal nutritional strategies, mental performance coaching and goal setting. In September we held our annual symposium – a full day of high quality gymnastics medicine education delivered virtually by experts in the field. Our team members continue to drive research in the sport of gymnastics, provide gymnastics competition medical care, deliver gymnastics specific injury prevention strategies and promote evidence-based practices to further the wellbeing and safety of the gymnast.
In 2022, it is our aim to continue to bring information of the utmost quality to you through our monthly grand rounds and our annual symposium once again. We also have several other new and interesting projects in the works that we hope will continue to progress the field of medical care in gymnastics.
We can’t wait to have you all join us again throughout 2022. Our next grand rounds will take place on Sunday February 27th and will focus on growth plate injuries in the gymnast. Keep an eye out for details in the weeks ahead!
