Abstract

EDITORIAL HYSICAL ACTIVITY REPRESENTS A KEY STRAT- tervention reduces knee injuries by 77% and noncon- egy for stemming the epidemics of obesity tact knee injuries by 90%. Although the intervention was and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Team sports not randomized, the teams receiving the intervention were are a particularly good way to promote ac- similar to those not receiving the intervention. The num- P tivity and its health benefits because teams ber of matches compared with training sessions was higher create an environment that is fun and sociable. Further- among the intervention team, but the investigators ad- more, the skills that a player learns through team sports justed for this difference and other potential confound- may result in a lifetime devotion to the sport. Students ing variables in their multivariable analysis. who participate in school sports are more likely to stay Significantly, Kiani and colleagues’ regimen is easy to in school and to maintain an active lifestyle as they get implement and inexpensive and requires no equip- older. Among teenagers, team sports may provide ben- ment. First, parents, players, and team leaders are edu- efits beyond physical activity by fostering discipline, pro- cated on the prevention of knee injuries.
