Sports medicine is a branch of medicine that deals with physical fitness and the treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports and exercise. Although most sports teams have employed team physicians for many years, it is only since the late 20th century that sports medicine has emerged as a distinct field of health care. Basmart Health is not thinking of playing a normal role in sports medicine, such as setting up specialized physiotherapy centers.
We want to take care about the reality of sports medicine in our stadiums, and put the correct application of good medical practice during sports competitions, and we have noticed that there is a severe shortage in this matter within our stadiums, and the matter of all things are going traditionally, and not as we see on the international competitions.
We will choose some areas where we believe that we should have a real role to contribute to the development of measures to preserve the lives of players or improve their performance in the stadiums, so we are concerned with the sudden cardiac arrest during sports competitions, especially in football, we are also preparing to develop the field of Sports Psychology.
We are also interested in FIFA’s efforts in football medicine, and we will try in the coming period to transfer all these efforts to our stadiums, and we are annoyed that they have not yet implemented till now.
FIFA is concerned with the sudden death incidents of football players during the competitions, and has set controls to prepare and respond quickly to these painful incidents, and we have trained cadres to deal with these incidents, and we will seek in the coming period to talk with the Football Association in countries suffering from the lack of such preparations to start working with them to apply FIFA’s manual in sudden cardiac arrest.

Training the mind, as well as the body, is increasingly being recognised as vital to achieving sporting success. Understanding how to apply psychology in sport can help improve an athlete’s motivation and ultimately their performance.
Both sport psychology (focusing on the dynamic interplay between psychological factors and athletic performance) and sport and exercise psychology (focusing on using psychological insight to increase exercise and activity levels) are essential components in empowering performance. Whether that be for professional athletes or the general population, an understanding of how the mind works can have a huge impact.
