What Is Sports Medicine?
Sports medicine is an umbrella term used to group together a few different branches of healthcare to better provide for those who are suffering from or wanting to prevent sports-related injuries. Under sports medicine, there are lots of different areas of healthcare geared towards healing and preventing injury from exercise. This can include physiotherapy, diagnostic imaging, osteopathy surgery, testing and shockwave therapy.
