2015 SEMS Medical Conference

Arsenal Football Club held its annual Sports and Exercise Medicine Conference at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.

Now in its fifth year, the event was hosted by the club's head of medical services, Colin Lewin, and medical director Gary O'Driscoll.

The day offered attendees the opportunity to share best practices across the medical and scientific healthcare industry, with a focus on practitioners working within elite sports.

Discussions focused on the current concepts in muscle injury, prevention, classification, treatment and rehabilitation in sport.

The conference featured a number of high-profile speakers. England and Saracens full back Alex Goode addressed the 250 delegates in attendance, along with Dr Ramon Cugat, an expert in orthopaedic sports medicine and arthroscopy, and Dr Emma Ross, head of physiology at the English Institute of Sport.

Lewin said: “Our medical team is constantly looking to develop and improve, to ensure we’re providing the best possible treatment to our players.

"This conference pools together a tremendous amount of experience from right across the industry, and allows us to share best practices and experiences. It’s proved a really useful tool over the last four years for us as a medical team, and for the delegates that attend too.”
