What is Sport and Exercise Medicine?

Axis Sports Medicine Specialists are sport and exercise physicians who are trained to use physical activity as a treatment strategy (“exercise as medicine”). Sport and exercise physicians are also trained to optimise the management of medical conditions that impact on exercise. Examples of these are diabetes, cardiac problems and asthma.

For more information about the specialty see here: Australasian College of Sport and Exercise Physicians.

Referral Expectations

As with any specialists, Sport and Exercise Physicians and Orthopaedic Surgeons can only see patients who have been referred by other health practitioners. Usually this will be your general practitioner, accident and medical centre doctor, or physiotherapist. However, podiatrists, chiropractors, osteopaths, nurse practitioners, and other specialists can also provide referrals. If you do not have a referral then you may see one of the Registrars, for either an ACC injury or a non accident related injury or illness.
