Abstract

Athletes will experience the affects of common infectious diseases. The training room offers the sports medicine physician an environment that is safe and convenient to the athlete; often providing athletes their only form of medical care. If sports medicine clinicians are well-versed in the presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of common infectious diseases; they will be able to have a significant impact in the care of the athlete. Prompt care in the training room setting will decrease hindrances to the athlete's participation, performance, and long-term well-being. The training room also provides a unique setting for prevention, screening, and education concerning high-risk behavior in athletes.
