Sports medicine is a branch that deals with assessing a patient’s physical condition in order to provide indications on starting, continuing or returning to sports practice. Its purpose is to assess an individual’s medical conditions and rule out any pathological conditions that may be aggravated by physical activity or that make practising competitive sport inadvisable.
