Engaging in sports or physical activity increases the risk of injuries. Certain sports, like football or basketball, result in a large amount of physical contact between players on different teams. In some cases, the sport or the exercise results in an injury. Sports medicine strives to find realistic solutions to prevent injuries or help athletes recover from injuries when they occur.
A medical professional in sports medicine uses their education, clinical studies and investigative skills to help athletes and their patients at every level of their athletic career. They work with high school students, college students and professional athletes so that they recover to the best of their ability and can continue a healthy and active lifestyle.
Advances in sports medicine change the way that doctors and medical professionals assist athletes with their physical goals. New tools, medications and physical therapies provide insights into different ways that medical professionals work with physically active individuals. It also helps doctors understand the way that individuals recover from severe and painful injuries.
A new segment on "Voices In America" with James Earl Jones will discuss the latest advances in sports medicine and the way that new technology shapes medical decisions. It will explain the changes that athletes can expect and the positive adjustments that will help improve recovery results. The segment will be made available nationally on Public Television platforms.
"Voices In America" is a public program, but it is not produced by PBS. The new segment is independently produced and distributed to stations.
