Ace treatment of sports professionals

I was fortunate to recently attend a fantastic lecture at the American Academy of Hand Surgeons’ Annual Meeting where Mr Mike Hayton  of the Wrightington Hand Unit  gave a very informative key note lecture on how to treat professional sports people. He shared some interesting and useful up to date techniques and methods for the quick and safe rehabilitation of highly specialised athletes. I'm looking forwards to integrating this new knowledge into my practice.
