Self-Assessment: NM Sports Medicine and the Running Athlete
From 2022 Annual Meeting Session Content
Course Description
Learn about sports medicine injuries and peripheral nerve conditions in the running athelete through this self-assessment course created from two complimentary courses from the 2022 Annual Meeting.

NM Sports Medicine Case-Based Presentations: A Mechanisms Approach
Sports injuries primarily involve the MSK systems, however, injuries to the peripheral nerves and CNS are increasingly more common especially in the era of extreme sports. These sports injuries can lead to catastrophic consequences if unrecognized and untreated. This session will use case-based presentations to highlight key features in EDX and NM management of these sports injuries. We will look at the NM and skeletal
injuries as they present in the emergency room and outpatient setting. Through a casebased teaching approach, attendees will be able to identify the epidemiology of sports injuries, and the injuries that are unique to different sports, and explain the role of imaging, especially US as an emerging tool in evaluation and management.

Peripheral Nerve Conditions in the Running Athlete
Recognize common neurogenic causes of lower extremity pain in the running athlete; discuss the pathophysiology and clinical presentation of various running-related conditions including common and superficial fibular nerve entrapment, lateral plantar neuropathy, and chronic exertional compartment syndrome; describe NCS and US techniques that may be used to facilitate accurate diagnosis of nerve injuries in the running athlete; and understand basic principles of biomechanical and gait analysis to identify risk factors for running-related injury in the clinical setting.

To claim self-assessment (SA) credit, you must watch the session recordings and answer a post-test. You must get above a 70% on the post-test survey to claim credit.
