Sport Medicine

Sports medicine deals with physical fitness and the treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports and exercise.

Overview

Sports and exercise medicine physicians have extensive education in musculoskeletal medicine, and specialize in the treatment of athletes and other physically active individuals.

Sport Medicine doctors treat injuries such as muscle, ligament, tendon and bone problems, but may also treat chronic illnesses that can affect physical performance, such as asthma and diabetes. 

They also advise on managing and preventing injuries, while advising on clinical physical activity interventions, negating the burden of disease directly attributable to physical inactivity.

Hi Brandon, Thank you for your email. From my understanding, you had a knee effusion after playing Squash? Having an effusion after an intense sporting activity is not normal. Having some knee pain is. If you do have a knee effusion, I think the most pertinent thing to do is to f...

Dear Problematic, Thanks for your question - really relevant to many people in Singapore. For mildly elevated cholesterol, I would suggest first trying dietary changes together with exercise, provided you don’t have any other significant cardiac risk factors such as high B...

Dear Gay Keong Your question is certainly an interesting one. As Dr Marilyn mentions, insulin injections are important in type 1 DM as you are deficient in insulin. Your glucose control needs to be achieved through a balance between insulin doses and food intake. Of course...

Hi Anonymous, Thanks for the question. Dr Ethan has provided a great answer to your question and certainly diet plays a significant role in weight management or reduction. Essentially, it’s a matter of balance. If you put more calories in than you expend, you will be...

Hi Gout is a very painful condition, and I am sure you can see it in your boyfriend when he is having an attack. It is caused when the uric acid levels in the blood rises too high and start to crystalise within the joint, causing inflammation of the said joint. The good news i...

Hi, Pain in the gluteal and hamstring region may be difficult to identify due to the complex interaction of deep muscles (also known as the hip rotators), the bigger superficial muscles (such as the hamstrings and glutes) and the main nerve that runs in the back of the leg (the sciatic nerve). Th...

Welcome to the over 30's club! I say this with personal experience of knee pain and a story similar to yours. Cartilage injury around the front of the knee can be quite painful and limit activity, particularly if you enjoy running and jumping sports. Seeing a physiotherapi...

Dear W Thanks for your question. If you have developed recurrent dislocations, pain around the front of the knee, swelling and crunching, it is possible that you might develop wearing of the cartilage behind the knee cap. This could potentially lead to wear and tear (degene...

Dear Jeremy Thanks you for your question and sorry to hear about your knee pain. There are many different causes for knee pain but a common problem in your age is something called patella-femoral pain syndrome. This is usually from a relative muscle imbalance and hence the phen...

We always check blood pressure and heart rate when we see a patient at clinic, and trust me, a low heart rate and low blood pressure is a fairly common incidental finding - especially amongst slim, smallish Asian women. Your blood pressure is linked to heart rate - because your ...
