Sports medicine is a specialized field focusing on preventing and treating orthopedic injuries within sports. Each sport has known motions and stresses on the body that can impact health and performance. Understanding the biomechanics within each sport and how that relates to joint and tissue injury helps with the treatment planning and sports rehabilitation.
