Abstract

Physical exercises and sports are the main factors in preventing the physical and mental disorders in different age groups. Injuries caused by doing physical exercises and sports in sport clubs, fields and schools are inevitable. However, the lack of adequate knowledge in management of these injuries will impose additional costs on healthcare system. In addition to financial issues, the wrong or inadequate treatments on damaged person might be venerable. Therefore, increasing the knowledge between people in the society and particularly students by a proper plan is need and can play a very important role in preventing physical injuries cause by either sports or physical exercises. It should be noted that, sports programs at schools are given much attention in many countries since most of the physical injuries have been seen in people between ages 11-18. To this end, sports programs at schools are a powerful tool in increasing the physical performance of students. Hence, the goal of this work is evaluating the level of knowledge between male and female students in management and prevention of sport injuries. The statistical population of this study was consisted of 4000 male and female students at pre-university level in Kerman, Iran. By using the Morgan table, 351 students were selected in a sampling random manner (with an age domain between 17-20 years and a mean standard deviation of 18.01± 0.6 years). In order to extract the data from Wang's standard questionnaire "Knowledge and Needs for Prevention and Management of Sport Injury among High/Vocational School Students in Taiwan Knowledge and Needs for Prevention and Management of Sport Injury among High/Vocational School Students in Taiwan" was used. To analyze the data descriptive statistical and inductive independent-T test, one-sided variance analysis and LSD tests were used. The results of this work reveal that 94.6 percent of students (332 students) were weak, 4 percent (14 students) were fair, 1.4 percent (5student) were good and none of the student were excellent. This inductive statistics shows that a meaningful difference between female and male students in terms of their knowledge does not exist. According to the results of this investigation, the fragile knowledge of students in terms of management and prevention of physical and sports injuries proves a lack of practical and theoretical courses on sports pathology and first aid in the schools curricula to manage and prevent the physical detriments.
