INTRODUCTION. The scientific literature reveals a significant increase of the incidence of injuries related to training competition and sports practice. Considering the negative impact of these injuries in athlete’s activity, it is important to understand the mechanism of occurrence and also to apply the available methods of prevention.
CONTENT. The aim of this presentation is to establish the risk elements that generate injuries in sports activities and to determinate the most efficient ways to prevent injuries by using the specific physical therapy techniques and methods. Starting with the general objectives of physical therapy (to increase range of motion, strength and endurance, to avoid maladaptive compensatory movement and patterns etc), we can establish which are the most adequate techniques for injuries prevention. Regarding the enhancement, the major objective of training is to improve performance by facilitating biological adaptation. Taking into account the factors and the principles of training and also the physiological consequences of training, we can estimate an improvement of strength, power, balance and coordination by using kinetological means like plyometrics and stretching. Physiological adaptation to exercise, exercises training principles and prescription, factors that modify human strength, practical application of plyometrics and stretching are also important subjects that we need to focus on.
CONCLUSION. Physical therapy plays an important role in athlete’s rehabilitation, injuries prevention and improves sports performance.
