Sports Medicine Rehabilitation are practical management skills to the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries arising from sport and physical activity. It includes all the necessary skills to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal injuries in the physically active person.
The goal/aim of sports medicine is to maintain, sustain, and at times to regain peak physical fitness i.e adaptability to stress- physical and mental. The main functions of sports medicine are promotive, educative, formative, recreative, competitive, therapeutic, and rehabilitative in nature. Sports medicine fulfills 3 main objectives: Orientation: according to the physical aptitudes of the person the doctor indicates what type of individual training must follow to maintain and to optimize its physical conditions. Prevention: to avoid that physical activity causes illnesses or injuries so that the physical performance is optimized as well as the quality of life. Cure: the doctor uses different techniques to treat injuries caused by the practice of any sport.
After the right diagnosis, the basis for optimal recovery is a clear and concise explanation of the pathology, physiotherapy, and directed exercise. Sometimes, we must resort to other treatments such as infiltrations or ultrasound-guided techniques, when the condition requires it. In Casa de Bienestar Salud Integral, consultations are accompanied, whenever necessary, by ultrasound, an essential tool in our daily practice both for diagnosis and to improve the precision of different invasive treatments.
