ABSTRACT
This study was conducted to determine the successful activities and reduce injuries to the knee-joint that would be realized only if we had a suitable cooperation between the trained staff of sport's medicine and a good coach. The aim of this study was to determine the number of injured athletes in their knee-joint, the level of injury, as well as the implementation of adequate rehabilitation and prevention, in cooperation between coach and the doctor. Twenty eight injured athletes, from 16 to 18, male and female, were verified within a period of two years (2009, 2010) in the town of Struga, who actively compete in all sports. The injured athletes, mostly were in basketball-18. Of these, 10 were female and 8 male. Under predisposing factor the most common was the mechanism of traumatic injury (invalid jump with the effect of compressive strength), excessive body weight, muscle and ligament weakness system around the wrist, inadequate training the effect of fatigue and so on. Notably appointed is the role of the coach and the doctor of sports medicine in the early recognition of predisposing factors for injury and their removal. This assistance can especially be seen in the sports rehabilitation which can never be successful without systematic teamwork.
