What Does Sports Medicine Treat?

Sports medicine is a field of medicine that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of injuries related to sports and exercise.


How Does Sports Medicine Differ From Osteopathic Medicine?

Osteopathic medicine encompasses all fields of medicine with an approach to medical care utilizing the core tenets of osteopathy. These tenets are:
1. The body is a unit; a person is a unit of body, mind, and spirit.
2. The body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing, and health maintenance.
3. Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated.
4. Rational treatment is based upon an understanding of the basic principles of body unity, self-regulation, and the interrelationship of structure and function.
In addition, osteopathic manual treatment (OMT) can be used for both diagnosis and treatment.  OMT can be employed as an adjunct or in some cases a replacement to more conventional treatments of medication and surgery. Sports medicine focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of injuries related to sports and exercise.


What Is The Sports Medicine Treatment Process/ Sports Medicine Philosophy?

The sports medicine treatment process begins with a history and physical examination to establish a working diagnosis and initiate treatment.  In addition to the history and physical examination, imaging and electrodiagnostic studies may be ordered to establish or further clarify a diagnosis.  Once a diagnosis is established treatment may consist of a combination of multiple disciplines.  Osteopathic manipulation, physical therapy, interventional strategies, and regenerative medicine can all be utilized as treatment options.


What Are The Reasons For Sports Medicine?

As the population grows and becomes more active the incidence of sports and exercise-related injuries will grow as well.
