Increasing numbers of high school- and college-aged students are participating in sports. As sport participation and intensity increases, the frequency of associated heat related illnesses and acute and chronic overuse injuries will continue to become more prevalent. The sports medicine physician plays an essential role not only in the practice and treatment of injuries but also in educating athletes about safe and healthy exercise habits that will provide life long benefits.
