Sports Physicians are specialist medical practitioners in the field of Sports Medicine. They have completed a bachelor’s degree in medicine as well as a specialist training program in Sports Medicine. This equips them in the domains of injury diagnosis, multi-modal rehabilitation planning, provision of appropriate medications to facilitate early and complete healing processes, and advice regarding injury management and return to sport.
In particular, athletic clients visit a sports physician for investigations, medications, injections, and referrals to relevant specialists.
