Epidemiolcgical Study of Technopaties in Amateur Basketball Players
Basketball is a complete sport for a broad audience that can find all the satisfactions associated with physical exercise. His practice is constantly uncreasing with the development of a game more and more physical, contributing to the increase of the frequency of the traumatisms. The main cause of injury is the contact with the opponent, but overload pathologies are not negligible. Our study aimed to determine the epidemiological aspects of
the technopathies frequently encountered in basketball players.
Materials and metbods: We collected 20 cases (19 men). The average duration of basketball practice (to date) was 23.35 years with extremes of 10 and 28 years. Those amateur basketball players played 3 times a week during at least 5 years Professional and casual (who played when they want, can stay months without play)
basketball players weren't included The selection of patients was thorough, a data collection sheet had been duly completed.
Results: There were 25 specific traumatic injuries and 8 overload injuries. The trauma of the lower limbs represented 72%. The muscular contusions had not been taken into account. Ankle sprain and ACL rupture were the most common lesions. Medical imaging was performed in all patients. There were 7 surgical patients. Accidents involving contact with the adversary accounted for 44% of the trauma
Conclusion: Basket-ball is constantly increasing with the development of a game more and more physical, contributing to the increase of the frequency of the traumatisms. Extremely stressed, the osteoarticular and musculotendinous systems of the upper and lower limbs are permanently exposed to risks of sprains,fractures and various trauma.
