Rehabilitation in Sports´ and Exercise´s Medicine
Adequately oriented physical exercise is one of the available tools that health professionals have to prevent and complement the treatment of a myriad of diseases and injuries in the field of Sports´ Medicine.
Simultaneously, with the progressive implementation of the National Physical Activity Promotion program, an increase in the number of injuries is expected which will require different specific treatments and, therefore, professionals qualified to perform them.
