Orthopedic sports medicine has a broad area of interest from the prevention of sports injuries, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of athletes, children, females, as well as older people. Accordingly, a multidisciplinary approach is needed to improve orthopedic sports medicine. Biomedical engineering defined as the application of engineering principles based on science and mathematics to the various problems related to human health is a good candidate for that. To improve the orthopedic sports medicine, biomedical engineering with a special emphasis in the musculoskeletal system offers isolating the problem and developing a set of hypotheses tested with experiments, modeling, and theoretical methods. In this chapter, such approaches and modalities of biomedical engineering are discussed with possible implications in risk assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of sports injuries.
