The aim of our research was to identify the importance of increasing self-esteem and overall physical satisfaction starting from a comparison between two engines disabled practitioners physical activity groups and not practitioners, with using of self-esteem Rosenberg (1965) scale. The results shows the existence of a significant difference between the scores of the rate of self-esteem of the disabled and non-practicing practitioners engines for those insertions within sports associations and engage in physical regular activities. The relationship between global self-esteem among the physically disabled practitioners and % body fat are strongly related (r = 0.7, p < 0.01). It has been proven that the sport positively affects the overall self-esteem and physical disability practitioners engine which is why we stress the importance of sport for people with physical disabilities, which will enable them to see themselves as useful and active members of society and thus to facilitate their reintegration.
