This article contains only a part of the results that were recorded and interpreted after studying players of the volleyball, basketball, handball and football teams and athletes. The sportsmen were between 13 and 42 years of age and their longevity in sports practising was between 4 and 20 years. The study extended over a three-year period of competitions, during which the sportsmen were examined closely: August 2006 - July 2009. All injured segments (N = 11) were compared against the total number of traumas per sportsmen, age groups and time spent in training, in order to reveal the age groups and longevity groups with the highest trauma incidence and the most frequently affected segments in the two periods (before and after starting the prevention exercises programme).
Results: the comparisons between the longevity in sports practising groups in the first and second period were made with the χ2 test; the result was p = 0.48 with =0.05 significance threshold, which means that in the two periods there are no major differences in forearm and elbow injuries between the longevity groups.
Key words:

traumas, forearm, elbow, competitive sportsmen
