Sports medicine is an interdisciplinary subspecialty of medicine which deals with the treatment and preventive care of athletes, both amateur and professional. Sports medicine is not a medical specialty in itself. Most sports medicine doctors are certified in internal medicine, emergency medicine, family medicine, or another specialty and then receive additional training. Some sports medicine doctors also specialize in treating injuries in children and teens, whose growing bodies can be quite different from those of adults. They are generally board-certified in pediatrics, or family medicine, with additional training in sports medicine.
Sports and exercise medicine consultants also deliver clinical physical activity interventions; they work towards reducing the burden of disease that is directly related to physical inactivity. There is enough evidence that shows the effectiveness of exercise in the primary, secondary and tertiary prevention of disease.
