The cost of sporting injuries has risen to an average of $127 per participant per year amongst the top 10 most played sports, according to recently published research work.

PR9.NET April 04, 2008 - Ohio, USA - The average cost of sporting injuries in the US's top ten sports has been calculated at around $127 per participant per year, according to research work published today by TheSportDoctor.com.

Surveying the top 10 most popular US sports at amateur level, the study revealed a shocking $127 per player per year price tag for sporting injury treatments, such as sprained ankles, ligament damage, and broken bones.

But the study also revealed that many of those suffering from sporting injuries were forced to pay out of their own pocket, with a number of leading insurance policies failing to cover some sporting injuries.
Oona Walsh of TheSportDoctor.com said the rising cost meant more and more grass-roots sportsmen were requiring injury insurance to safely enjoy their pastime.

"What we're seeing with these rising costs is a growing trend on the part of health care providers to bump up costs for specialist procedures. And what's worse, many health insurance policies don't cover injuries picked up in the course of sporting activities, like those we see on a daily basis. Unfortunately now this means amateur athletes may need to look into individual insurance policies to cover themselves against the growing perceived risks."
