Sport medicine is the medicine and science of physical activity and sport for individuals of all ages and abilities. It promotes well being through physical activity and prevents illness due to inactivity.
Sport and Exercise Medicine Physicians are specialists skilled in the delivery of musculoskeletal and physical activity medicine and a team care approach. The specialty manages and improves health through exercise advice and prescription. Sport and Exercise Medicine Physicians have specialized training and skills in the care of active individuals of all ages and skill levels. They improve the health of patients through physical activity, disease prevention or modification, lifelong exercise and injury assessment, diagnosis and treatment.
Sport and Exercise Medicine Physicians can assist in the care of all non-surgical muscle and joint problems including osteoarthritis, sprains and strains and conditions resulting from overuse. They work collaboratively with other practitioners, therapists and trainers and with different sport organizations to facilitate healthy active living.
Sport Medicine Physicians bridge the gap between your family physician and orthopaedic surgeons or other specialists. At Pivot Sport Medicine we offer a wide variety of custom bracing and splinting. With proper diagnosis and fitting, orthopaedic bracing can provide the support and stability needed during the healing process and help prevent further injury or re-injury. Your family doctor can refer you to a Sport Medicine Physician.
