Jared’s Answer, CareerVillage.org Team

Yes it is certainly a profitable career (although I might use the word lucrative of high paying rather than profitable). Generally, it's just as profitable as other board certified specialty doctor roles, IF YOU CAN GET IT. What I mean by that is that you have to first become a doctor (which is a set of challenges) and then you have to create or join a practice and specialize in orthopedics and sports medicine (this is all post medical school). It's certainly competitive, but that's a different question.


For what it's worth, there are a couple of related careers such as physical therapist specializing in sports medicine, certified athletic trainer. If you want to know more about those then ask a separate question.
