From 4 to 6 June 2022 in Lyone we met again under the aegis of the Isokinetic Conference, the world medical-sports community after three years forced to stop due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The XXIX edition of the International Conference on Rehabilitation and Sports Traumatology was an exciting mix of learning, sharing, inspiration and connection with old and new friends. The main theme “the players’ voices” was underlined by the new format, called open debates, which saw the active participation on the stage of sports patients. This new format was a great success and joined the more traditional sessions of athletes. to free oral and beginner posters and to the contest dedicated to narrative medicine.
