Hi Allie,

Sports medicine is a carrier in which you need to take care of sports person, when they participate in any tournaments. You need to help them before and during the tournaments and heal them in case of any injuries. Sports person need to be at the top of their fitness level in order to perform well on the field.

Sports medicine is one of the promising carriers now as more and more tournaments are coming up and many professional leagues are already there. There is lot of money invested on players and franchises want their players to be healthy to participate in the tournaments. 


You can train yourself for physiotherapist, who usually goes along with players during their tournaments. Other options can be like top-flight trainer, psychologist, nutritionist, physician etc


Sport medicine specialist can also work as counsellors/consultants, which can help sports person improve their fitness level.
