Jerusalem —
medicine today must concen-
trate on prevention of sports
injuries and not just treat-
ment or surgery says- Dr. Gi-
deon Mann of the Sports
Medicine Unit at the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem.
Mann spoke at the conclusion
of the Fifth International
Jerusalem Symposium on
Sports Injuries.
Dr. Mann, chairman of the
symposium's organizing com-
mittee, stressed in his
remarks that prevention of in-
juries requires proper atten-
tion to the types of sports sur-
faces used and shoes worn for
physical activities. These are
the factors which most lend
themselves to control, he said.
The symposium dealt with
shoulder, back and knee in-
juries as well as the role of
shoes and playing surfaces in
controlling injuries. Some 300
doctors, including sports
medicine specialists and ex-
perts in the fields of shoes and
surfaces participated in the
two-day conference.
One of the central questions
raised was whether the large
increase in sports injuries was
at a reasonable level. Prof.
Haim Weinberg, former head
of orthopedics at Hadassah
University Hospital Mount
Scopus, argued that sports oc-
cupies an increasingly impor-
tant place in society, both
because of the large numbers
of people participating in
such activities and also
because of the large sums of
money being invested in pro-
fessional and amateur
athletics. The great involve-
ment in sports activities
creates injuries that previous-
ly were not widely en-
countered, he said, such as in-
juries to the knee and spine
and hormonal disruptions
among women (menstrual
cessation). The sports physi-
cian must be concerned that
hundreds of thousands of
sport devotees are liable to
suffer injuries as a result of

their activities, he states.
Prof. Robert Leach of the
Boston University Medical
Center, who has served as the
physician of the American
Olympic delegation, said that
while the high incidence of
serious injuries from sports
activities is worrisome, the
fact that good physical condi-
tioning can lead to improve-
ment in the quality and dura-
tion of life makes such risk ac-
ceptable from society's point
of view. At the same time, he
added, everything possible
should be done to prevent in-
juries rather than having to
treat them later. Dr. Leach
cited the high injury rate of
American football is
excessive.
Prof. Benno Nigg, professor
of biomechanics at the
University of Calgary, said
that research has shown the
connection between playing
surfaces and shoes and the
frequency of sports injuries.
Prof. Nigg presented two
aspects which determine sur-
face quality: the frictional
behavior of the surface, since
surfaces which permit more
sliding make for fewer in-
juries than those surfaces
which do not (clay surfaces,
for example, are better than
asphalt for tennis) and the
cushioning aspect, since hard
surfaces are liable to cause in-
juries to joints and bring
about arthritic problems at a
young age. He said that work
done by his research team
and others has led to changes
in the ways in which sports
shoes and ordinary shoes are
constructed, enabling the foot
more freedom of movement.
