Sports and Exercise Medicine – Open Journal (SEMOJ), also known as sports medicine, is concerned with physical fitness, injury treatment, and prevention in sports and exercise.
Previously, physicians were professionally trained and deployed in sports teams to treat injuries sustained during a game. Sports medicine emerged as a distinct field in the late twentieth century, and significant efforts have been made within the public health community to encourage people to become more physically active.
SEM specialists are pioneers in diagnosing and treating any condition that may arise during routine exercise or sports activity. Musculoskeletal injuries are treated separately from other conditions such as exercise-induced asthma, diabetes in sports, female athlete triad, screening cardiac abnormalities, unexplained underperformance syndrome, and so on.
However, Openventio aims at the widespread propagation of sports and exercise medicine and research through its Open Access (OA) journal for the welfare of the sports community.
