ACPOMIT are proud announce their 2017 Annual Conference - 'Injections and Tendons: Why, when & where?
We have a fantastic and varied line-up of speakers to cover all aspects of the ongoing debate around injections in and around tendon structures - when is it useful? when might it be harmful? what is the evidence in the literature that exists? and how do we translate this into a workable and patient centred approach to help manage a whole range of patients from the sporting to the sedentary.
We also have some fantastic practical sessions with an opportunity to observe some of our expert speakers in action.
Join us for a fantastic day of education and debate
