The UCAM brings together great experts in sports injuries (15/03/2019)

The National Congress of Prevention of Sports Injuries, held at the Campus of Los Jerónimos, has brought together prestigious specialists such as Pedro Guillén, extraordinary professor of Sports Traumatology at the UCAM, and José María Villalón, head of the Medical Services at Atlético de Madrid, among others

"The competitive calendars are denser and a professional footballer can participate in more than 65 official matches during the season and that means they play almost two games a week, which must be added the displacements, the jet lag and food changes. All this can cause more injuries due to overload in the soft parts of the locomotor system. "

José María Villalón, head of the Medical Services of Atlético de Madrid, warned of the increase in injuries due to overload in professional football in recent years.

It has done so in the framework of the National Congress of Prevention of Sports Injuries that has been held at the Campus of Los Jerónimos of the Catholic University of Murcia.

One of the aspects that has been advocated to prevent and cure sports injuries has been teamwork among professionals from different branches of health and sports.

Therefore, Dr. José Luis Martínez Romero, co-director of the Chair of Sports Traumatology, has pointed out the importance of having a multidisciplinary team to prevent injuries: "Until now, when someone was injured first he healed and then recovered. The traumatology of sport seeks to match biological healing with functional recovery and this is why this conference wants to highlight the importance of teamwork to achieve it, achieving this we will shorten the recovery period and all this work will be for the benefit of society because we do not want this to remain in elite sport. "

Although in some cases the injury is inevitable, there are aspects that can help prevent it from occurring.

This has been pointed out by Dr. Pedro Guillén, Professor of Sports Traumatology at UCAM and director of the CEMTRO Clinic, specifically referring to the players: "Prevention consists of protecting the foot well, protection comes with the boots, which must be released the ankle to allow their mobility, that is, on the one hand they must protect well and at the same time give freedom of movement.In a normal foot the bandage is not necessary.If they are sold it is because they have advised him badly or because there is a previous injury "

The importance of 'jet lag' for Tokyo 2020

Another of the specialists who have participated in the congress is Gerardo Villa, professor of Sport Physiology at the University of León, who has warned of the importance of taking into account factors such as heat, humidity, time of competition and change time so that Spanish athletes who compete in Tokyo 2020 do not suffer a drop in performance on the key day: "You have to train it, you have to train acclimatization to heat, you have to be proactive in trying to mitigate changes in physiological variables. For example, for every hour of time difference you have to be a day earlier in the city where the competition is held and in turn people have to adapt to compete in the hours that will be their competitions to acclimate their body. it is not done that way, it will not perform properly and we are talking about losses of 10%, which is much more than the improvements that are achieved by training.

All that we have gained may well be lost if these factors are not taken into account. "
