What is Sports Cardiology?

The first-ever reported exercise-related death in history dates back to when the Greeks won the battle against the Persians in Marathon. A foot messenger was told to run back to Athens to deliver the joyous news, but after arrival and after shouting his message, he collapsed and was pronounced dead. Hippocrates’ tutor, the Greek physician Herodicus is generally considered to be the father of sports medicine, and he taught gymnastics and understood the association between therapeutic exercise and a good diet for good overall health. Nowadays, heart doctors understand this association far more closely, and top athletes often rely very heavily on sports medicine and especially as there is the risk of sudden cardiac death. Sports cardiology has been a subspecialty of cardiology since 2011 when the American College of Cardiology developed the Exercise and Sports Cardiology Section.

Our best heart doctor in Manhattan main goal is to assess and evaluate athletes to ensure safe participation in athletics.

Top athletes must manage their overall health to remain competitive, and this management is often extremely complex. Usually, they will have a team of specialists who collaborate closely, and which include physicians, nutritionists, coaches, psychologists, and exercise physiologists.

However, sports cardiology isn’t just for top athletes, and it can help anyone who likes to stay fit and exercise regularly, including weekend warriors, to achieve their maximum potential while protecting their hearts.
