Physical therapy is based on how the function limitations of a particular person’s body affect their ability to move. Sports medicine is based on what kind of injury a person received as a result of physical activity. However, both physical therapy and sports medicine can help you recover from injuries, reduce pain, eliminate limb stiffness, and improve movement.
