Sports and Exercise Medicine deals with the application of physical activity and specific prescribed exercise to the treatment of medical conditions and as a component of rehabilitation following physical injury. It focuses on the beneficial effects of appropriate exercise in disease states such as obesity, diabetes, osteoarthritis, asthma and many other medical conditions and appropriate exercise guidelines and exercise and activity modification in persons with variable ranges of physical disability, either temporary or more permanent.
In this practice we favour a holistic and multidisciplinary approach where therapists work as a team normally coordinated by the Sports Physician to provide our patients with the current best practice, comprehensive and effective management of their injuries or medical problems
One of the important aspects of this holistic approach is undergraduate and postgraduate training. This practice has a very strong commitment to such training and on occasion we will have undergraduate medical, physiotherapy and sport science students sitting in with us at consultation, and we will also have post graduate appropriately trained doctors working with us under our supervision to gain further experience in Sports and Exercise Medicine.
This commitment to teaching is part of our commitment to remain up-to-date with the current best practice in all areas of sport and exercise medicine enhances rather than hinders patient communication assisting understanding the intricacies of diagnosis and treatment and assists in critical evaluation of management programmes. We feel that this commitment helps us be better at what we do.
