Medical Screening, formality? - The inside story
By Dr. P.S. Wong
The most important role of a sports medical practitioner is to ensure every athlete can enjoy good physical and mental health. Only then his or her sports performance can be maintained or enhanced. Apart from the ongoing medical service, the annual medical screening is an important process whereby the most up-to-date health status of an athlete can be assessed and followed up. Any negative factors will be corrected so as to attain the goal of injuries prevention and performance enhancement.
