Sports Safety  print friendly

Sport is healthy, but certainly holds a risk of injury. Injuries related to sports activities accounts for 18% of all home and leisure injuries that need medical treatment in hospitals. Almost 5,2 million cases a year. The focus of the EuroSafe Task Force on Sport Safety is on improving of knowledge on the prevention of acute and overuse sports injuries in European countries. The main aim is a reduction in the number and/or the severity of injuries. The promotion of physical exercise and injury prevention is seen by us as two complementary and not competitive health promotion objectives.
