The objective of this session is to examine specific nutrition recommendations to support injury recovery for the general population who are involved in recreational sport and activities as well as the high-performance athlete. The session focuses on examining the current research on the recovery from musculoskeletal injuries, along with strategies around potential concussion protection and concussion recovery.
