How long is sports medicine school?

http://education-portal.com/articles/Sports_Medicine_Doctor:_Educational_Requirements.html A sports doctor is a fully qualified medical doctor who has chosen to focus on sports medicine. That means in order to become a sports doctor, you have to do the same requisite training any doctor has to go through before you can practice. You will need a bachelor's degree in science, if not a pre-med degree, followed by medical school and residency. The residency level is where sports doctors typically begin to distinguish themselves, but you can start honing your focus as early as pre-med with proper guidance and a clear understanding of what elective courses will best serve your career goals.

While it is possible to complete the degree within one year, it depends on how the student takes the program, meaning full-time or part-time. Most individuals take a part-time credit load which means it could take anywhere from two to three years to complete. Still, that is entirely up to you. You can research these programs by going to www.collegeboard.com/splash/ and using their College MatchMaker search engine.

What should you do about a sports injury?

Evaluate if there is too much swelling around the injured area. If you are able to walk or put pressure on the injury in question then it might be alright just to put some ice on it. If you cannot put pressure on the injured area it may be the best idea to go see a doctor.

What are the three stages of a sports injury?

1) Bleeding - - this stage lasts about 10 minutes. Blood vessels are damaged whenever tissue is damaged. Bleeding soon stops as the blood clots. The blood can spread out under the skin (i.e. forms a bruise).

2) Inflammation and Swelling - this stage lasts up to 10 days. Within 10 mins of injury inflammation begins. The blood supply to the area is increased and chemicals are released, causing the area to go red and feel hot. At the same time a fluid called serum (which comes from the blood) builds up. Serum is a thick, sticky, yellow fluid which contains protein. This protein will eventually form scar tissue.

The body tends to produce so much serum that it causes swelling e.g. sprained ankle. As serum is sticky, it binds the tissues in the injured area so that they cannot move easily and feel stiff.

Consequently, during this stage of healing it is important to gently move the area to minimise stiffness and swelling, and to help the serum to be absorbed once it has done its job. Movement can be started very gently, with frequent rest periods, and gradually built up.

3) Repair - begins 2-3 days after injury and continues for 3 months. The protein in the serum joins together to form scar tissue, which repairs the gaps left by the injury. From 3 weeks after the injury the scar tissue begins to contract and tighten. It is therefore important to stretch the healing tissue to increase its elasticity and strength.

How long does it take to earn a degree in sports medicine?

A bachelor's degree in most areas can require between 120 to 128 college credits particular to a specific program of study. This would be based on a college or university that operates on a regular two semester academic year which is the most common. For institutions that operate on a tri-semester or quarter-semester it would be quite different. That being said, the Bachelor's degree - in most cases - is designed as a four year program of study, provided the student is full-time and follows their chosen program of study as prescribed by the college or university, and also provided the individual does not require prerequisite or developmental coursework as a result of basic skills testing. The minimum credit load for a full-time student is no less than 12 credits per semester. However, to complete the degree within the four years, a credit load of approximately 15 to 18 credits is recommended. For individuals who work or who have other responsibilities that would prohibit them from attending full-time, completion of the degree may take twice as long. Still, some of this time can be cut down by attending summer sessions and/or interim sessions. Still, there are some colleges and universities that offer accelerate programs. In addition, the bachelors and associate degrees are referred to as undergraduate degrees while the masters and doctorate degrees referred to as graduate degrees.

How long due you keep ice on a sports injury?

Ice for 15 minutes..when 15 minutes is up wait an hour before icing again. With injuries to the spine do not exceed 15 min! Leaving the ice on too long can damage the skin and even the nerves! It can also cause edema...leaving the ice on the injured area too long will also trick you body into thinking it is freezing and will bring more blood to the injury and make swelling much worse.

Anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes on the spot of he injury. Too long might damage skin and too short won't allow the swelling to go down. That's the rules i go by, however, I am not a trained doctor, so i don't know if i am right. Sorry if i am wrong.

What is the quickest healing sports injury?

Rinsing your sore with warm water and a touch of vinegar for about 15 mins at the least. Might sting, but it'll heal pretty fast. If it's a really bad cut, you have to get 2 cups of olive oil, 1 cup of water, 1/2 of vinegar, and one green grape. Take the skin off the best you can. Smear the grape around your sore (take the grape and put the skin in the olive oil, vinegar, and water)

Leave the sore open (which means NO BANDAGES YET) for 5 mins. During that time you can mix everything else together. First tear the grape skin apart and drop it in a cup with vinegar in it. Let it soak for about 1 min. Stir the olive oil and water together and take the grape skin out and put it in the oily water. THEN slowly pour the vinegar in and apply.
