Another Successful Experts’ Conference

During the last weekend of September, the Mehiläinen Sports Hospital Experts’ Conference once again brought together fantastic speakers and a large audience in Helsinki.

The themes of the by now well-established conference included repetitive strain injury in young athletes, diagnosing and treating tendon injuries, basketballers’ health, and the overall well-being of athletes.

During the event, the Professor Sakari Orava Fund also gave out two grants for research and development in sports medicine.

The international elite clubs FC Barcelona and AC Milan shared their experiences of working with Sports Hospital’s experts, as well as valuable information on how multimillion-grossing footballers can return to the pitch after being injured.

Some of the Finnish top speakers at the event were orthopedists Juha Ranne, Mikko Kirjavainen, Olli Pajulo and Håkan Alfredson, radiologist Justin Lee and basketball coach Henrik Dettmann. Additionally, panellists discussed elite athletes’ experiences and stakeholders’ views on issues relating to athlete health.
