What is Sports Medicine?

The official definition of sports medicine is as follows: a branch of medicine that deals with physical fitness; it includes the prevention and treatment of injuries that result from exercise and sports. A sports medicine practitioner might be a primary care physician, an orthopedic surgeon, a physiatrist, a physical therapist or a chiropractor. In many cases – such as at Vitality Health Medical – several of these experts work together to help you regain your health.

Sports Injury and the Human Body

No matter what the injury or its precipitating cause, the body reacts in the same way. Inflammation and swelling occur. You body releases various chemicals and you have pain in the injured area. An injury might result in a fracture, tendinitis or a misalignment of the spine or other joints. As a result, you change your gait, limit motion and guard against the pain. If not treated properly and promptly, these changes result in tight, shortened muscles. Ligaments may also become tight or weaken, and you can lose muscle strength. Your posture and balance are affected and you can develop chronic pain.

How Sports Medicine Can Help

Sports medicine doesn't just target the injury you've suffered. While the first goal is to help you heal, correct problems and relieve pain, a good sports medicine practitioner looks beyond the initial injury. For example, if your body is not properly nourished, your endurance will suffer. Performing a sports move incorrectly increases the risk of injury and can cause strain on the body, as when a pitcher's body mechanics are not correct and shoulder injury results. Proper stretching and strengthening exercises not only help prevent injury but help you perform better. At Vitality Health Medical, we offer chiropractic care and physical therapy, acupuncture and massage.
