The Annual Conference Program Committee is excited to announce the confirmation of Drs. John Whyte, Tessa Hart and Marcel Dijkers to present an important Special Symposium at the 2017 ACRM Conference in Atlanta. This symposium will describe progress by the NIDILRR and PCORI-supported Rehabilitation Treatment Taxonomy project (RTT) in developing a standardized system for defining rehabilitation treatments of all disciplines with respect to their known or hypothesized active ingredients. The symposium will explore the utility of such a system in supporting clinical reasoning, clinical education, and supervision. Save the conference dates: 23 – 28 October 2017 and reserve your room today at the conference headquarters hotel.

Special Mid-Year Meeting Presentation by Dr. Kevin McCully
Please join us at the ACRM Mid-Year Meeting in Atlanta on Friday 28 April, from 2:00 – 3:00 PM, for a special presentation by Kevin McCully, PhD, FACSM, NAK, on Rehabilitation of Muscle Function After SCI. This presentation will review changes in muscle strength, endurance and injury susceptibility after SCI. Methods of improving function with electrical stimulation will be reviewed, followed by a discussion of the technical aspects of assessing strength, endurance, and injury susceptibility. The goal is a better understanding of the changes that occur in skeletal muscle after SCI and how we can monitor and improve these changes. The SCI-ISIG business meeting will follow the presentation.
