Sports Injuries: Understanding Shoulder and Foot Conditions

23rd January 2020 One Ashford Hospital


One Ashford Hospital is holding an educational masterclass with two leading Orthopaedic Consultants, looking at sports related injuries specific to the shoulder and foot and ankle joints.  


The evening will provide you with an understanding of predisposing factors and assessment of commonly suffered sports injuries.  Our Consultants will illustrate a detailed approach to the structure and function of each joint, examine the mechanisms leading to injury, identify and spot conditions, recommended treatment options and when to refer to a specialist for further investigations.



Shoulder injuries are frequently caused by athletic activities that involve excessive, repetitive, overhead motion, such as swimming, tennis and weightlifting.  Most problems in the shoulder involve the muscles, ligaments, and tendons, rather than the bones.  In athletes, shoulder problems can develop slowly through repetitive, intensive training routines.

Mr Jai Relwani, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at One Ashford Hospital


Mr Jai Relwani, Consultant Orthopaedic Shoulder surgeon will be looking at common shoulder injuries, including:


  • Shoulder instability and dislocation
  • Rotator cuff disorders
  • Labral tears
  • Impingement




Foot and Ankle

Running still remains one of the most common sporting activities, with the average age of a runner having increased to 40+.  Although running comes with a number of health benefits, repetitive use of the foot and ankle can lead to certain overuse and ligamentous injuries.  Unfortunately this is all too common at this time of the year with New Years’ resolutions!


Mr Bal Dhinsa, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at One Ashford Hospital

Mr Bal Dhinsa, Consultant Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle surgeon will be presenting on a range of conditions, including:


  • Stress fracture
  • Extensor Tendonitis
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Common ankle sprains


We encourage you to engage in debate with the speakers and your peers throughout the morning, and you are invited to bring along your own case studies for discussion.




Please arrive by 7:00pm for registration and refreshments in order for the event to start promptly at 7:30pm.  


There will be networking opportunities during the break and at the end of the seminar.
