Sports (and Exercise) Medicine (SEM)
In some countries Sports and Exercise Medicine is identified as a specialized medical discipline with defined training and standards of accreditation similar to other medical specialties. In other countries it is considered a special interest area, but not a specialized school and practice of medicine. Sports Medicine (or Sports and Exercise medicine SEM) is regarded differently on a regional basis.
Sports and Exercise Medicine emerged as a distinct field of health care in the late 20th century in European countries: Switzerland in 1922, followed by Germany in 1924, and then France and Italy in 1929. Italy was the first country to establish Sports and Exercise Medicine as a specialty in 1958.
Sports Medicine is primarily focused on the prevention and treatment of injuries related to sports and exercise, as well as health maintenance through physical activity. Sports Medicine doctors and paramedical providers are experienced with managing physical disability conditions relating to physically demanding work, treating a variety of muscular and orthopedic conditions.
A common childhood and young adult condition treated by Sports Medicine doctors is exercise induced asthma. Prescribed physical activity and prophylactic measures, tailored by a Sports Medicine specialist can prevent the onset and alleviate its symptoms. Adults with exercise induced asthma can manage their symptoms with a similar approach.
