Sports medicine, also known as sport and exercise medicine (SEM), is a branch of medicine that deals with physical fitness and the treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports and exercise.
The goal of sports medicine is to prevent injuries and optimize a healthy lifestyle. Once an injury takes place, the goal is to then make sure the injured person comes as close to a complete recovery as possible. In some cases, this may mean no noticeable loss of performance, but in others there may be a substantial loss
