Sports Doctors – General
Sports Medicine Physicians are experts in musculoskeletal injuries.
They also are trained in helping people with medical issues and illnesses, particularly in relation to exercise programmes or sporting activity.
They are often the first point of call for a person with a musculoskeletal problem whether from sports, exercise, work or just general daily activities.
They can provide the initial assessment and refer for appropriate testing in order to make an accurate initial diagnosis.
From this a management plan can be instituted.
The sports medicine physicians have a network of excellent specialists in their respective fields whom they may refer you to for further treatment. These include orthopaedic and general surgeons, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, sports podiatrists, nutritionists, remedial masseurs, sports psychologists etc .
