Sports and exercise medicine (SEM) encompasses a broad range of skills including management of acute or chronic exercise related injuries, the management of medical problems associated with sport and exercise, doping related issues, and exercise prescription for both healthy people and for treatment and prevention of chronic disease. Research in SEM is particularly concerned with injury prevention, rehabilitation, and enhancing physical function. Team care, at both elite and community levels, may involve on-field management, touring with the team, and administrative work.
Sport and medical conditions
While there are an almost infinite number of medical conditions or injuries which may affect athletes there are some specific conditions which are consistently of concern in the sport sector.
Concussion and head trauma
Relative energy deficiency in sport (RED-S)
- Metabolic rate
- Menstrual function
- Bone health
- Protein synthesis

- IOC consensus statement: dietary supplements and the high-performance athlete, Maughan RJ, Burke LM, Dvorak J, et al., British Journal of Sports Medicine, Volume 52(7), pp.439-455, (2018). Nutrition usually makes a small but potentially valuable contribution to successful performance in elite athletes, and dietary supplements can make a minor contribution to this nutrition programme. The appropriate use of some supplements can benefit the athlete, but others may harm the athlete’s health, performance, and/or livelihood and reputation (if an antidoping rule violation results). This review summarises the issues faced by high-performance athletes and their support team (coach, trainer, nutritionist, physician) when considering the use of supplements, with the goal of providing information to assist them to make informed decisions.
- Psychological Issues Related to Illness and Injury in Athletes and the Team Physician: A Consensus Statement—2016 Update, Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, Volume 49(5), pp.1043–1054, (May 2017). This document provides an overview of selected medical issues that are important to team physicians who are responsible for the care and treatment of athletes. It addresses select psychological issues including: stress/anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and substance use disorders, as well as issues related to the team physician and their role n recognizing athletes at risk and providing referrals for additional care.
- Consensus statement on concussion in sport—the 5th international conference on concussion in sport held in Berlin, October 2016, McCrory P, Meeuwisse W, Dvořák J, et.al., British Journal of Sports Medicine, Volume 51(11), pp.838-847, (2017). This consensus document reflects the current state of knowledge and will need to be modified as new knowledge develops. It provides an overview of issues that may be of importance to healthcare providers involved in the management of SRC. This paper should be read in conjunction with the systematic reviews and methodology paper that accompany it. First and foremost, this document is intended to guide clinical practice; however, the authors feel that it can also help form the agenda for future research relevant to SRC by identifying knowledge gaps.
- Monitoring Athlete Training Loads: Consensus Statement, Pitre C. Bourdon, Marco Cardinale, Andrew Murray, et.al., International Journal of Sports Physiology and Performance, Volume 12, S2-161-S2-170, (2017). In February 2016, a conference on “Monitoring Athlete Training Loads—The Hows and the Whys” was convened in Doha, Qatar. This consensus statement brings together the key findings and recommendations from this conference in a shared conceptual framework for use by coaches, sport-science and -medicine staff, and other related professionals who have an interest in monitoring athlete training loads and serves to provide an outline on what athlete-load monitoring is and how it is being applied in research and practice, why load monitoring is important and what the underlying rationale and prospective goals of monitoring are, and where athlete-load monitoring is heading in the future
- International criteria for electrocardiographic interpretation in athletes: consensus statement, Drezner JA, Sharma S, Baggish A, et.al., British Journal of Sports Medicine, Volume 51(9), pp.704-731, (2017).
