Blunt abdominal trauma has a higher prevalence in traffic accidents, and is important because of its high morbidity and mortality, it is considered an emergency pathology requiring surgical intervention -which can be done on multiple occasions-, which implies a higher rate of complications and prolonged in-ward stay. This is a case of a 30-year-old patient with a diagnosis of blunt abdominal trauma requiring a colostomy, closure of the colostomy, and the need for a new surgical intervention due to stenosis of the colorectal anastomosis with a high risk of intestinal obstruction, in whose multidisciplinary treatment management was included the medical specialty of Sports Medicine. The purpose is to demonstrate the importance of the supervised medical physical conditioning program carried out by the sports medicine physician for the improvement of the physical and functional capacity of patients undergoing this type of surgical intervention.
