Sports Medicine is one of the most rapidly progressing fields of medicine. Sports Physicians are doctors who undertake an extensive post graduate training program in dealing with sports injuries and are now a recognised specialty. Currently no referral is needed to see a Sports Physician (however with a GP referral you will get a greater Medicare rebate). As seen with the high profile sporting clubs on television and in the news, Sports Physicians are at the forefront of the most effective treatment of any injury to muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons and joints. LifeCare Sports Physicians work closely with other health professionals and specially qualified Sports Physiotherapists to ensure the patient receives the best possible treatment and care.
