Pour éviter les graves blessures il faut savoir préparer l organisme par des gestes sûrs et précis.
Faire des massages préparatoires à l effort des étirements des strechings pour donner une certaine vie aux muscles aux tendons aux articulations.
Former des cadres en prévention des blessures devient un impératif pour nos sportifs.

Being here wel be the best thing of my life because football is not that much matter

Dr Aniemena-George Chidi Chinenye

I think injury prevention in Football should primarily include prevention of Cardiac related issues in Football.
It should not be seen as a different entity.
The heart is the number one Muscular organ in the human body.
We loss players day in day out, in and off the field of play.
Very little is being done to prevent this, especially in developing countries.

The pre-season medical and physical evaluations are fundamental for the prevention of injuries, illnesses and contribute to having a base that allows the season to start without any setback.

Providing options such as 11+, monitoring TL through objective and subjective tools (ASRMs) for players in injury prevention is very important.
