Escarpment Sports Medicine Centre
What is Sports Medicine?
Sport Medicine professionals have specialized training and skills that position them to be caregivers for active patients of all ages. They have an interest in the promotion of lifelong wellness and fitness, as well as in prevention, diagnosis and management of illness and injury. Many have completed further professional training, in the form of a Sport Medicine Fellowship and/or an additional university degree (Master’s or PhD level) in a related discipline such as sport medicine, exercise science, etc.
Sport Medicine physicians can provide for the specific requirements of the active patient:
Diagnosis and comprehensive management of injury or illness in acute, sub‐acute or chronic states
Review and recommendation of exercise prescription for both individuals and teams; including pre‐screening for exercise, activity or sport‐specific needs, and counseling about strength and conditioning
Pre‐participation physical assessments to determine ability to participate in specific sport related activities
Counselling regarding medications and supplements in terms of health, doping control, and legal implications
Management of rehabilitation goals and plan for return to sport or activity in coordination and cooperation with other medical and rehabilitation professionals
Advice and counselling regarding psychological issues and mental preparation for sport
Communication of their knowledge to coaches, athletes, teachers, parents, officials, administrators etc.
Sport Medicine continues to evolve to meet the demands of the active individual as well as the changing roles of physicians in the health community.
