Parkour is one of the extreme sports where participants overcome different obstacles without using any equipment. Parkour is based on running, jumping, swimming, rock climbing, balancing and martial arts. Taking into account the extreme nature of this sport, parkour insurance is necessary, because any careless movement made by an athlete anytime can result in an accident.
The most common injuries in parkour

- Collarbone injuries.
- Spoke-bone fractures.
- Wrist joint injuries.
