Sports 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.
