SPORTS MEDICINE

 

The fitness visit

The practice of sport has several benefits at a physical and psychological level, but at the same time it subjects the organism to a cardiovascular, respiratory, metabolic and nervous effort which varies depending on the sport that is practiced and on the individual’s physical conditions.
In order for the benefits and success associated with sport to manifest, it is necessary that the athlete is in a good state of health and physical efficiency.

In certain instances, in fact, sport might induce ailments and evidence anomalies hitherto unnoticed. In order to ascertain the state of health and avoid risks associated with the practice of sport, it would be apt to subject oneself, prior to commencing the activity, to a medical-sports control, as is in fact prescribed by law in Italy.
