ESSKA conference is behind us. Rehasport Clinic in Barcelona!

20160506_182101(0)One of the most important medical events in 2016 is right behind us! Rehasport Clinic team delivered several presentations during a highly prestigious ESSKA conference (i.e. European Society for Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy) held in Barcelona. Rehasport Clinic delegation group was composed of PhD Tomasz Piontek, PhD Andrzej Pyda, PhD Paweł Bąkowski and physiotherapists: MA Agnieszka Prusińska and MA Piotr Kaczmarek.

During the so-called „pre-course” PhD Tomasz Piontek revoked experiences of its team with regard to arthroscopic reconstruction of joint cartilages – our technique of arthroscopic reconstruction of AMIC cartilage is pioneering, and our five-year experience shows that at the same time and during the same surgery we can reconstruct ligaments, regenerate meniscus and reconstruct a cartilage. Thanks to an exchange of experiences and a heated discussion on this issue, it is possible to improve the joint cartilage treatment – admits PhD Tomasz Piontek.

Further in the ESSKA conference, Rehasport Clinic specialists presented results of the cartilage and meniscus regeneration. – It is essential that we move forward, particularly when we see a satisfied patient who still has his/her own knee cartilage and its replacement is likely to be postponed for many years – remarks doctor Piontek.

MA Piotr Kaczmarek gave a lecture during a panel discussion organized by ESSKA in cooperation with the European Handball Federation.  The subject “Shoulder injury prevention and rehabilitation in Handball” was prepared in cooperation with PhD Przemysław Lubiatowski and PhD Monika Grygorowicz. – The presentation was concerned with monitoring severe injuries and overload injuries in handball with the use of our SIOMS system: Sport Injury & Overuse Monitoring System, showing results of our analysis of existing shoulder injury prevention in throw sports and our measuring techniques in order to design “Biomechanical Shoulder Profile” of a sportsperson. We also discussed elements of a comprehensive rehabilitation in case of injuries or surgery. All discussed matters should be the basis for designing prevention programs and further verification of their efficiency – says Piotr Kaczmarek, a physiotherapist.
