    Is there any science or health career fields that studies the martial arts and the impacts it has on the body?

    Eastern medical philosophy and practice is influencing traditional western medical practice more and more every day. East vs West is a short read and provides a nice over view of changes to western medical practices. For more in depth information check out the NCCAM.

    Hoplology is the science that studies human combative behavior and performance, so you may want to take a look at the International Hoplology Society (IHS) website.

    There is an article I've been reading called: The Application Of Traditional Martial Arts Practice And Theory To The Treatment Of Violent Adolescents. I think its worth reading.

    Hope this helps.
