What is sport and exercise medicine?

sport and exercise medicineSport and exercise medicine is a specialist practice dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of sports injuries and musculoskeletal problems, as well as the enhancement of performance. Approximately 90% of all sports injuries are non-surgical, which makes specialists an excellent initial point-of-contact for diagnosis.

If further investigations are required, or surgery is needed, they can deliver rapid access to scans such as X-ray, MRI, Ultrasound and CT, and expedite referrals to leading orthopaedic surgeons or other relevant sports medicine specialists with whom they work closely.
