Pee Dee AHEC Partnering With McLeod Sports Medicine: “It’s More Than Just the Shoulder.."

McLeod Health Sports Medicine will host a Sports Medicine Symposium on May 30 at the Florence Civic Center from 7:30 am - 5:00 pm. The symposium, titled "The Overhead Athlete, It's More Than Just the Shoulder," will focus on the mechanics of the overhead motion, strengthening interventions aimed at minimizing injury risk, and improving athletic performance with mental conditioning. Overhead athletes who perform motions such as pitching place demands on the shoulder joint that can lead to injury. During the symposium, attention will be given to the kinetic chain: linking injuries during the overhead motion with a focus on maximizing lower extremity power production. Sport psychology highlighting athlete confidence and return to play will also be discussed.

Guest speakers include Dr. Patrick Denton, Dr. Charley Bunyan, Dr. Jeremy Hertzog, Bobby Jones, Derick Urquhart, and Laszlo Leiter. Topics they will address include: 
  • Overhead Athletes: Non-Surgical Considerations
  • Overhead Athletes:  Assessment, Prevention, and Surgical Criteria
  • Upper Extremity Kinematics & Exercise Progressions
  • Identity Loss After Injury
  • Lower Extremity Kinematics & Exercise Progressions
