General Considerations on Sports-Related Injuries


The European Union has been actively supporting the development of regular physical activity for several health reasons [65] (COM 2007),. The Eurobarometer, published in 2013, provides statistics of sports participation and indicates that on average 58 % of Europeans engage in physical activity or sports. Nevertheless, the number of persons reporting never practicing sports or physical activity increased by 3 % since 2009 (39–42 %). In 2010, in France, two thirds of the population aged 15 and over report having practiced, over the last 12 months, one or more physical activities or sports at least once a week.
