Expert Panel Q&A Event – Shoulder Injuries in Sport

Location Online (Zoom)

The March event of the Injury Rehab Network with The Shoulder Doc, Professor Len Funk was so successful that Len could not answer all the questions about shoulder injuries in the time available. Sterosport and BASRaT are excited to announce plans for a unique opportunity to delve further into shoulder injuries in sport.

Professor Funk will be part of a panel of shoulder injury experts from the North West including Doug Jones (Altius Healthcare Director) and Ethan Stamp (Sale Sharks GSR).

Each panel member will present a short case study before tackling questions. The event will run for around one hour.

This free online event for anyone studying or working in the field of sports rehabilitation is taking place on Wednesday 26th May 2021 at 7.30pm. Sterosport are delighted to deliver this and all Injury Rehab Network events in collaboration with the British Association of Sport Rehabilitators (BASRaT).
