Peter Friis has been involved with Sports Medicine since 1984.
Sports Medicine involves the holistic medical care of the active individual. It often involves the investigation and management of musculoskeletal injury and conditions often exacerbated by activity.
For the aging population, activity is no longer considered a bonus, but rather a necessity. Also, the "Industrial Athlete" is a term recently used to identify that work-related problems are similar to sporting injuries.
Not all damaged or degenerative joints are the same, and the specificity of diagnosis that is expected from high powered investigation now warrants a bespoke approach to treatment options. A Sports and Exercise Physician takes this "all-inclusive" view and is well placed to offer advice on a variety of management options.
