In modern society, regular physical exercise is considered not only for its prophylactic value, but also as a kind of intervention with the potential to alleviate various symptoms related to some diseases. With this background, the practice of sports has gained more and more space and one of the most important manifestations of physical activity among children and adolescents. On one hand, the regular practice of sports among young people can positively affect your health and quality of life, on the other hand, the practice of sports (especially that aiming high yield) exposes more and more children and adolescents with an increased risk muscle injuries. Objectives: To analyze the impact of sports on the occurrence of musculoskeletal symptoms (pain, tingling or numbness) over 12 months of follow-up among adolescents of both sexes, as well as identify the relationship of musculoskeletal symptoms with variables linked to human growth and inflammation. Methods: This longitudinal twelve month follow up involving adolescents aged between 12 and 16 years of both sexes. Minimum sample for the study was estimated to be 231 subjects. Teenagers will be grouped according to their involvement in different sports (swimming, soccer field, basketball, volleyball, karate, judo and kung-fu) and control groups. The musculoskeletal symptoms will be evaluated by previously validated questionnaire, whereas body composition estimates are made by bone densitometry unit. Physical activity will be measured by accelerometer and inflammation by C - reactive protein. Biological maturation is estimated by anthropometric measurements. Expected results: Identify patterns of musculoskeletal symptoms by different sports, as well as to identify the role of variables related to human growth and inflammation in this process. (AU)
