We are honoured to welcome you in Thessaloniki to discuss “The Impact of Sports in Cartilage Health”. We all understand the severity of the morbidity caused by cartilage injuries or posttraumatic – postsurgical osteoarthritis and we are happy to announce that in this special ICRS Focus Meeting we will all manage to get in-depth knowledge of the real problem, focusing on the mid and long term results of injury, or even no-injury!!

  • Effect of activity in joint homeostasis
  • Acute traumatic injuries in sports: what happens in the cartilage
  • Chronic damage and early OA in athletes: any evidence?
  • Treatment methodology to achieve better results
  • Orthobiologics: the impact on reducing OA prevalence in sports
  • Rehabilitation aspects towards achieving homeostasis
  • Prevention – Prescription of exercise as “cartilage health tool”
