Sport and exercise medicine (SEM)

What is it?

There are three key components to sport and exercise medicine; musculoskeletal medicine, team care and exercise medicine.

Musculoskeletal medicine involves the diagnosis and conservative management of orthopaedic, joint, limb and spinal problems which may be related to sport, exercise, occupation or daily physical activity such as walking or gardening.

Team care involves the holistic management of athlete health all year round in and out of competition. It includes the diagnosis and management of general medical and orthopaedic problems related to sport.

Exercise medicine involves prescribing movement in the prevention and treatment of many chronic diseases.
