Sports medicine, also known as sport and exercise medicine, is a branch of medicine that deals with physical fitness and the treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports and exercise. Although most sports teams have employed team physicians for many years, it is only since the late 20th century that sports medicine has emerged as a distinct field of health care. Sport and exercise medicine doctors are specialist physicians who have completed medical school, residency training in a specialty such as physiatry or orthopedic surgery, and then gone on to complete additional fellowship training in sport and exercise medicine. Specializing in the treatment of athletes and other physically active individuals, they have extensive education in musculoskeletal medicine. SEM doctors treat injuries such as muscle, ligament, tendon and bone problems, but may also treat chronic illnesses that can affect physical performance, such as asthma and diabetes.  There are 9 sports medicine universities in the Chicago, 2 rehabilitation institution and research centers, 8 Sports medicine and Orthopedic hospitals.

Statistics which shows growth Sports Medicine devices:

The 2011 sports medicine devices market is estimated to be at $3.3 billion and is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 9.3% to reach $5.7 billion by 2017. Knee application still holds the largest share among others due to the high frequency of ACL injuries along with other conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, meniscal cartilage damage, and patellar chondromalacia.


Basketball and soccer are two sports in the spotlight for an increase in the number of professional and non-professional players. These games, along with many other regional games, have increased in popularity in the past decade. This can be seen from almost a 5% to 8% rise in number of basketball players every year. These games, becoming popular in Asian countries such as China, Korea, India, and Eastern Bloc countries, can promote a very favourable outcome for the intensive sports medicine market. Research has shown that due to the large number of players and popularity of sports, the incidences of injury are high. This is predicted to propel the sports medicine market and create emerging markets in the growing economies of Asia and Latin America.
