What is Sports Medicine?
Sports medicine casts a wide umbrella and has many applications. As a field, it includes numerous treatments and exercises that can be used for a variety of injuries, illnesses, and other disorders. That said, proper stretching, exercising, and physical therapy are crucial to ensure joints and affected areas do not stiffen. Over time, these areas heal correctly, while you retain, or in some cases, increase your flexibility and range of motion.
Rehabilitation from injuries isn’t the only aspect of sports medicine. Preventative care teaches you how to minimize the risk of future injuries and how to train your body properly. This can include workouts designed specifically for your needs and wellness treatments. We can also teach you about the foods you should be eating to maximize improvement and performance.
