What is Sports Medicine?

According to Mirriam-Webster Dictionary:

“Sports Medicine is a field of medicine concerned with the prevention and treatment of injuries and disorders that are related to participation in sports”.

The term ‘sports’ can be any form of physical activity undertaken as exercise which may involve injury or pain. Sports includes running, playing soccer, basketball or football. Sports includes ballet, gymnastics and yoga even diving or waterpolo. People have stepped wrong while walking their dog. Sports includes any example of physical activity or exercise, recreational, competitive, amateur and professional. If you do it, you may get hurt doing it.
