Sports Medicine

Sports Medicine is a broad-based discipline that includes (1) the management of the medical issues that arise for exercisers of all ages and skill levels, (2) pathophysiology, biomechanics, and performance optimization of humans, (3) the therapeutic use of exercise in the diagnosis, management, and prevention of disease, and (4) the population-level promotion of health and prevention of illness or injury.

Moreover, orthopedic sports medicine, as a branch of orthopedics, focuses on treating musculoskeletal pathologies brought on by participation in sports. Timing is the most challenging topic to address with athletes. Athletes typically want to get back to playing as quickly as they can, indicating that treatment should be tailored to balance the urge for a quick return to activity with the musculoskeletal system’s natural healing process.
