Sports Medicine

What is sports medicine?

Sports medicine has become a specialised field in medicine in recent times, as the skills and complexities in providing up to date care of sports injuries have evolved.

It is very important to note, that sports medicine is a field that is relevant for ALL patients, regardless of age and skill level, and doesn’t just cover injury management. Sports and exercise medicine is a broad field involving promoting ‘exercise as medicine’, managing joint pain and immobility and injury prevention.

All of our GP’s are well versed in promoting exercise as medicine and can assist with your sports injury. Dr. Matt Fuller has completed an additional degree in sports medicine and is available for consultation.

Our GP’s can communicate and work closely with your preferred allied health practitioner (ie. physio, exercise physiologist) to assist in your management.
