Sports medicine or ‘Sports and Exercise Medicine’ (SEM) is the branch of medical science that deals with such injuries and devises methods to prevent such injuries.


Usually, people who are indulged in sports or games would have to consult a SEM specialist often, either to prevent injuries or to treat injuries. Also, people who indulge in strenuous physical activities or exercise vigorously may need doctors of this specialization. People who work in jobs where they have to lift heavy loads or have to exert themselves more than usual might also be in need of SEM specialists.

Various sports injuries like Concussions, muscular cramps, and pains, shin splints, soft tissue tear, etc. are treated in different ways. The treatment includes injury identification and rehabilitation as well. The treatment greatly depends on the severity and the location of the injury. For relieving pain, painkillers are used.
