Treatment of Sports-Related Injuries (“Sports Medicine”)
The prevention, diagnosis and treatment of sports-related injuries and medical problems is a specialized medical field known as “Sports Medicine.” It is essentially a combination of surgical and non-surgical orthopaedic care (care for your bones, muscles and joints) and care for other medical conditions, which can be brought on by - or complicated by - active participation in sports, such as asthma, diabetes or high blood pressure.
