Q: What is Sports Medicine ?

Sports medicine is the field that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of sports- and exercise-related injuries, specifically damage to the rotation of joints and/or muscles. Sports medicine evolved out of the need to diagnose and treat the ever increasing sports related injuries suffered by countless fitness oriented people as well as professional athletes worldwide. A number of orthopedic surgeons have achieved legendary status for their ability to rebuild the worn out or damaged knees, shoulders, feet, ankles and elbows of professional athletes.
