    Abstract

    Sport for all" means sports injuries for all. Facilities for their treatment are inadequate in the United Kingdom. An analysis of 1750 cases indicated that many injuries are specific to sporting activity and that the problem of their treatment cannot effectively be solved by the organization of special clinics for sportsmen based on existing services. There is a case for establishing regional or area clinics manned by appropriately trained, recognized, and committed specialists.
