Sports and Exercise Medicine focuses on the management of medical problems and injuries in those who participate in physical activity and sport. Consultants in this field can work with everyone from elite athletes to amateur and weekend sports enthusiasts, helping them to both prevent and manage injuries and to return to physical activity safely and as soon as possible.
For many people sport is a way of life, for others it is an occupation and for the nation as a whole, sports and exercise is a way to stay fit and healthy. The majority of sports and exercise activities come with associated risks, whether playing a competitive team sport or going for a run at the weekend.
At King Edward VII’s Hospital we have assembled a team of team of leading consultants in Sports and Exercise Medicine dedicated to helping sports professionals and amateurs fulfill their potential by managing any medical problems and injuries relating to physical activity.
