Étude des pathologies sportives en lien avec la formation militaire initiale chez des jeunes engagés du Centre de Formation des Militaires du rang d’Angoulême, et engagés sous-officiers de l’École de Saint-Maixent

Abstract : Introduction: the military training has been reformed to limit the risk of injuries and preserve the operational readiness of the Armed Forces. What is the current state of injuries related to the basic military training for soldiers and non-commissioned officers of the french army ? Methods: this prospective observational study was performed from January to June 2017 at the soldiers training center of Angoulême and the non-commissioned officers school of Saint-Maixent. Each recruit who was medically fit and had consented to participate was included for 12 weeks from the beginning of his training, after receiving a written information. Biometric data of each subject were collected. Recruits filled out at the beginning, middle and end of the training an overtraining standardized questionnaire. Consultations for traumatological reason were gathered by physicians thanks to a descriptive sheet. Results: 346 soldier recruits and 333 non-commissioned officers recruits were included. The incidence of traumatological consultation was respectively 16,76% and 15,8%. The injuries caused respectively an average of 7,71 and 13,24 days of unavaibility, and respectively 2% and 3% of permanent stops of the training. Walking and running were the most responsible activities. The lower limb was the most affected. Overuse injuries represented 60,4% of the lesions. Tendinopathies constituted a third of the diagnosis. The female gender and an overtraining score higher than 15 were associated with a significantly increased risk of injury. Discussion: the application of the new principles of the military training helped to limit injuries, but it has to be strengthened. The time spent on running should be reduced in favor of multifunctional activities. All the military members must be taught the principles of a « healthy » sportive practice. The overtraining questionnaire might be a way to identify trainees at high risk of injury.
