Sports Doctors in Malta and Gozo

Sports Doctors

Sports doctors treat professional and amateur athletes; not only do they treat athlete’s problems associated with nutrition, injury, substance abuse, and sports psychology, but also work in preventing injury. Sports doctors are usually orthopaedic surgeons or primary care physicians, that dedicate their work to athletes.

When to see a sports doctor

The main reason to see a sports doctor is to prevent injury and improve your performance if you are an athlete. Professional athletes work with coaches and a team of sports doctors hand in hand to enhance their results and ensure injury-free performance. You do not usually need a referral from your GP to see a sports doctor and should visit one if you:

  • Are starting a new kind of sport or exercise
  • Are suffering from chronic injury
  • Sustain a sports-related injury
  • Want to improve your performance
  • Want to prevent injury
