What is Sport and Exercise Medicine?
Axis Sports Medicine Specialists are sport and exercise physicians who are trained to use physical activity as a treatment strategy (“exercise as medicine”). Sport and exercise physicians are also trained to optimise the management of medical conditions that impact on exercise. Examples of these are diabetes, cardiac problems and asthma.
