Abstract

This symposium will address four important issues, starting with the prevention of sudden cardiac death, which unfortunately is increasing day by day in sports practice, followed by the main topics related to the injuries prevention through some methods and programs to avoid the most frequent musculoskeletal sports lesions in athletes. The higher competitively and the violence in elite athletes may be one of the main causes to increase the number of concussions in sports and the rules to avoid them and the main parameters to make the more accurate diagnosis in and out of the field will be considered. Finally, the most difficult questions to answer are: when and how the athlete will return and what are the criteria to define the right moment to be back to the sports practice? At the end, the audience will be able to understand the importance of the prevention programs and what are the best criteria and the best moment to allow the athletes to return to sports.
