About The Book

The inspiration for writing this book came when I saw children have become dropouts from sports activities in schools due to injuries. Many parents sent their children with great enthusiasm but it diminishes later, they develop hatred, highly talented children and youths could become dropouts due to severe injuries.

The topic of sports injuries in India is the most unidentified, neglected and unrecognized one. The injury situation and risk is borne by parents, teachers and organizes alone due to non-availability of insurance facilities, health care centers attached to school curriculum. This may be one of the reasons many parents do not like to send their children for vigorous sporting competitions.

There is no enough research on sports activities, fitness programs and on sports injuries. Where as in advanced countries like United States of America, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and other European countries, this research programs are very popular. This may be the first step by the researcher from India on the basis of "Prevention is better than Treatment of sports injuries".
