Abstract

The sports medical examination of the disabled subject represents an important moment in the doctor-athlete relationship, more than in the case of a non-disabled subject; the person's expectations (together with his family's ones) are confronted, in fact, with the pathology the subject carries in a different context from the rehabilitation setting, from the perspective of the access to the sports universe which, at any level, can represent an excellent tool for growth and affirmation, as well as a stumulus to the set up of inclusive processes towards the disabled athlete.
