Sports medicine is an independent medical specialty.It requires specific training which is provided as part of a University master’s degree, including 200 hours of practical placements and a final master’s thesis.

The Cinabere centre emphasises the analysis of specific gestures or movements in sports and the management and treatment of the specific traumatic injuries that occur in each sport.

In sports medicine, precise diagnosis of the injury is essential in order to optimise the management, provide appropriate treatment and optimise the conditions for getting back into the sport.

Personalised advice is often necessary in order to prevent a relapse or recurrence.

Where necessary, additional investigations are carried out with the help of external specialist consultants with a reputation for excellence (ultrasound, X-ray, MRI, postural analysis, Cybex testing, etc.).

Sports medicine is currently undergoing rapid development following the introduction of very precise equipment for video gesture analysis, particularly using 3D joint position sensors.

Treatment of mild or moderate traumatic sports injuries often but not always involves mesotherapy.
