Sports medicine refers to an area of medical practice that assists individuals to improve their overall athletic performance. It aids in preventing, diagnosing as well as treating sports-related injuries, such as sprains, strains, fractures, concussions, dislocation and exercise-induced asthma. Apart from this, it is also widely used to treat chronic overuse injuries, which include tendonitis, degenerative diseases and overtraining syndrome.

Sports doctors who are certified in pediatrics or family medicine can also assist children and teenagers by helping them in exercising safely and avoiding acute trauma.
