Sports injuries are inherent to sports activities. To set up effective sports injury prevention programs, a staged approach using 'sequence of prevention' was introduced in 1992. This presentation will review the current state of sports injury prevention, using the work done around ankle injury prevention as an example. Future directions for the sports injury prevention field will also be discussed.

This session will examine the data and efficacy of more prevalent and popular treatments in the sports medicine field. Currently, many treatments are practiced, either without any evidence or with insufficient data to justify their use. This session will bring together experts in each area to discuss relevant data, the theoretical basis for each treatment, and if the data support or does not support the clinical application of the treatments. Attend to become familiar with various treatment options and able to discuss with patients the efficacy and applicability of treatments for specific conditions.
