Sports Injury Research

This chapter deals with the study design needed to establish properly the various factors leading to sports injury. While there are multiple factors acting simultaneously, a study investigating these factors needs to be prepared for the need of more elaborate statistical analyses. Researchers should be aware that this requires a proper preparation, and synchronisation of the methods used to assess the different aspects. The chapter specifically deals with these issues and provides hands-on examples of methods to assess injury risk factors and mechanisms.

Keywords:   injury risk, intrinsic risk factor, extrinsic risk factor, injury mechanism, biomechanics, validity, reliability
