While it is not a direct measure of the total number of people around the world who are into sports, it is definitely a positive marker to see a larger number of people getting treated for sports related injuries. The global market for sports medicine devices is currently growing at a phenomenal rate, thanks to the increasing number of people who are steadily deciding to get off their seats and take up a sport.
Who is into Sports Today?
It is a surprise to see that age is becoming less of a bar when it comes to a lot of sports, as we now have people from all age groups who, if they have the capability, are enjoying an active lifestyle that involves at least one form of sport. On the other hand, there is also a growing number of senior citizens who are getting treated for sports related injuries or treatments that are close to in, such as arthroscopies and hip replacements. All this is due to a growing number of key companies in the field of sports medicines trying to make treatments and drugs as affordable as possible. Citizens of North America will not complain about that, seeing how most insurance companies are not covering sports related injuries. Therefore, more and more demographics are flowing into various forms of sports and athletics. This is also encouraged by sporting goods manufacturers who are creating increasingly advanced products. Apparel and accessories companies such as Adidas and Nike are doing everything in their power to encourage people to take up a healthier lifestyle, while also buying their products.
Sports Medicine Becomes Integral Around the World
Developing nations are showing a high amount of activity in terms of consuming sporting goods. In another instance that shows that these regions are taking sports medicine more seriously, the GCC has started off its first Sports Medicine Conference. The conference is being organized by the GCC Health Ministers’ Council and Aspetar. It will be a two day event that hosts some of the leading personnel in this field to talk about this profession.
More and more countries are beginning to involve themselves in increasing the level of activity of individuals, whatever the reasons may be.
