Special E-edition: Return to Play

Following the success of our Pain e-journal, the BJSM digital team has curated a special Return to Play edition. This follows on from our July 2016 virtual conference (Return to Play Virtual 2016). Our aim is to present quality updates on a host of areas including ACL rehabilitation, Achilles rupture and concussion. Once again we utilise the benefits of going online to link in external content. Some supplementary material from YouTube and the ever popular @YLMSportScience infographics have been included to enhance your learning experience. There is a whole host of FREE to access BJSM content including the 2016 Consensus on Return to Play.
Please share your thoughts with us on social media if you enjoy these themed online editions with a specific topic in focus. As ever we are open to suggestions on how we can best serve the Sports Medicine community. Use #BJSMOnlineEdition to join the discussion on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. We hope you enjoy a physically active day, Your BJSM online editors
