Sports Medicine bridges the gap between science and practice in the promotion of exercise and health, and in the scientific assessment, study and understanding of sports performance. Regular features include: sports injury prevention and treatment; exercise for health; drugs in sport and recommendations for training and nutrition.
Sports medicine is most commonly used to target and treat sports-related injuries, but you may be surprised to learn that the field is not limited only to athletes. Even occasional exercisers can benefit from sports medicine and therapies.
Sports medicine tends to focus on evaluation and diagnosis of sports-related injuries, even people who aren’t into sports, professionally or otherwise, require rehabilitation and treatment for conditions similar to those that athletes incur.
Physical activity is perhaps the most powerful personal choice you can make to prevent disease, promote function and slow aging. The positive effects on heart health, cancer risk and mood are as powerful as many medications. We encourage all our clients to add a dose of exercise to their daily lives. This can be in the form of lifestyle or leisure time exercise and can be spread throughout the day or condensed into quick bursts. Whatever you choose, physical activity is powerful stuff.
New treatment options are available:
- Preventative Care
