Sports Medicine is a term used to describe the medical practice that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, management, and treatment of injuries sustained in active sports. Sports medicine includes the application of medical science and experience to the optimization of sporting performance and health. A sports medicine doctor or specialist is a physician trained in sports medicine who has specialized training in treating injuries sustained as a result of athletic events and participating in contact sports. This can be in the form of a college degree, medical school diploma, and experience in a sports medicine internship.Sports medicine doctors can specialize in a number of areas including knee injuries, shoulder injuries, neck pain, head trauma, pediatric, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic brain injury, pregnancy, and orthopedic injuries. Most professionals will begin their careers in an area of specialization. As a result, there are numerous subspecialties within this broad field of medicine. 



These subspecialties include pediatric, geriatric, cardiovascular sciences, physical therapy, oncology, orthopedics, sports medicine, neurology, pediatric orthopedics, pulmonology, radiology, shoulder surgery, head surgery, and pediatrics. In the clinical settings, these professionals provide care based on the diagnoses made by the sports medicine doctor.Many sports medicine specialists find employment in hospitals, orthopedic clinics, athletic departments at colleges and universities, coaching facilities, professional sports teams, and sports medicine clinics. To progress from an intern to a full-fledged resident, several months of residency in a sports medicine department and another four years of graduate school are required. Graduates may then apply to a number of medical schools and pursue a bachelor's degree or a master's degree, depending on the number of years of experience and the concentration they wish to pursue in this field.




Therapeutic Exercise


The main purpose of any Therapeutic Exercise program is to make you feel stronger and healthier than you started. However, therapeutic exercise also has the same objectives but usually incorporates a much wider spectrum of different activities which help you maintain or regain your mobility, balance, flexibility, endurance, and coordination. For example, even if a person only needs some small adjustments in order to feel better (like getting up from a chair), there are many other activities that can help them reach their full potential. These may not seem like real benefits to someone who is used to the traditional forms of strength training and stretching, but they are very real and should be considered while trying out new things.Many people are apprehensive about starting new forms of treatment, and while a physical therapist can help with this, the benefits of therapeutic exercise far outweigh any apprehensions or worries. Many people are afraid of pain and suffering in general and are naturally resistant to new techniques and treatments.



Physical Rehab


Many people suffering from some kind of injury or illness experience a time of physical limitation. The limitations brought about by an injury or illness are often unexpected and extreme. For this reason many people who are physically impaired find that they need to see a physical therapist or other rehabilitation professional for treatment and rehabilitation. A physical therapist is an experienced professional with expertise in the areas of rehabilitation and physical therapy. Physical Rehab is essentially the medical procedure of retraining the body so that it can function as it did before an injury or illness. This includes strengthening the muscles, ligaments, bones, tendons, and other internal organs. An injury or illness can sometimes limit your ability to function normally in your daily activities. Your daily activities become almost impossible. Even something as simple as picking up a cup of coffee may become difficult. A good rehabilitation professional can help you regain your mobility and restore your quality of life by providing pain management and restoration services.



A physical therapy clinic provides several benefits to their patients. First of all, the health care professional has extensive training in the areas of pain management and the various injuries that affect the musculoskeletal system. This allows the professional to quickly know how much pain medication needs to be prescribed, and what part of the body needs the most assistance with the shortest time. The benefits also include monitoring the patient's progress with their rehabilitation and working closely with them with the objective of improving their health and well-being. Finally, the clinic offers its patients a safe, comfortable environment where they can receive aftercare services and learn more about the nature of their recovery.
