Global Sports Medicine Market: Overview

Absence of warm up exercise increases the risk of sports injuries. Injuries such as sprains, strain bruises, tears, and bone fracture can result from sports activities. Soft tissues such as fascia, muscles, ligaments, nerves, tendons are majorly affected by these injuries. Sports medicine is a branch of medical science dealing in physical fitness and treatment of injuries and wounds occurred due to sports or athletic physical activities. Expansion of the sports medicine market can be attributed to the rise in commercialization of sports medicine in the healthcare sector.
