Sports & Exercise Medicine Specialists

Called SEM physicians or specialists, they are fully qualified doctors [most of them are orthopaedic surgeon] and have taken additional training in Sports Medicine. They specialize in the treatment of athletes and other physically active individuals.

SEM physicians have extensive education in musculoskeletal medicine. SEM doctors treat injuries such as muscle, ligament, tendon and bone problems, but may also treat chronic illnesses that can affect physical performance, such as asthma and diabetes. SEM doctors also advise on managing and preventing injuries.

SEM consultants also deliver clinical physical activity interventions, negating the burden of disease directly attributable to physical inactivity and the compelling evidence for the effectiveness of exercise in the primary, secondary and tertiary prevention of disease.

SEM physicians are frequently involved in promoting the therapeutic benefits of physical activity, exercise and sport for the individuals and communities. SEM Physicians spend a period of their training in public health, and advise public health physicians on matters relating to physical activity promotion.
