Extreme sports are profoundly transforming sports participation, and many of them have been recognized as Olympic disciplines. This chapter aims to discuss the physiological and biomechanical demands on athletes, review the epidemiology of injuries in extreme sports, and highlight some aspects that are common to the therapeutic–rehabilitative approach to these sports. From the physiological perspective, extreme sports may be broadly categorized into two groups, namely: sports involving extreme mental stress and ultra-endurance activities. Sport-specific orthopedic injuries include tenosynovitis, ligament tears, and fractures caused by the distinct athletic gestures involved in these activities. In the treatment and rehabilitation of extreme sports-related injuries, it is essential to consider the over adherence to rehabilitation exhibited by participants and the need for a complete functional restoration before returning to their sport.

Abstract

Extreme sports are profoundly transforming sports participation, and many of them have been recognized as Olympic disciplines. This chapter aims to discuss the physiological and biomechanical demands on athletes, review the epidemiology of injuries in extreme sports, and highlight some aspects that are common to the therapeutic–rehabilitative approach to these sports. From the physiological perspective, extreme sports may be broadly categorized into two groups, namely: sports involving extreme mental stress and ultra-endurance activities. Sport-specific orthopedic injuries include tenosynovitis, ligament tears, and fractures caused by the distinct athletic gestures involved in these activities. In the treatment and rehabilitation of extreme sports-related injuries, it is essential to consider the over adherence to rehabilitation exhibited by participants and the need for a complete functional restoration before returning to their sport.
