About Sports Medicine
Sports medicine refers to a division of the general medicine that concentrates on physical fitness, treatment, and prevention of sports and exercise-related injuries. This division helps in assessing and understanding the performance of athletes. It has been estimated that, each year, around 14% of all medically treated injuries are related to sports. These injuries range from minor sprains and strains to more serious injuries such as broken bones and concussions. Sports medicine devices can be classified into surgical devices and therapeutic devices. Surgical devices comprise joint implants and arthroscopy devices, which help in reconstruction. Therapeutic devices include support and recovery devices such as braces and supports, monitoring devices, and other accessories such as wraps and tapes, disinfectant wipes, cold and heat therapy, and alcohol-based hand rub. Joint repair surgery is considered as a treatment for the severe joint pain and dysfunction of joint related with sports injury. The joint repair procedure is, in general, performed through keyhole surgery. The minimally invasive procedure allows speedy recovery of patients.
