What is sports medicine?

Sports medicine is designed to prevent and treat injuries that occur while exercising or playing sports. It also focuses on making sure you’re healthy enough to play sports.

What are sports injuries?

Sports injuries are divided into two types, acute and chronic. Acute injuries occur suddenly, such as with a sprained ankle. Chronic injuries, on the other hand, arise over a period of time.

The symptoms of an acute injury include:

  • Tenderness in the affected area
  • Not being able to move a joint normally
