A clear and concise definition of (sports) injury is the most important prerequisite when studying sports injuries. In the literature one finds an abundance of different definitions being used. One should realize that the choice of definition has a great impact on the outcome and subsequent conclusions of research, notwithstanding the interpretation of results from other studies. This chapter describes the pros and cons of different injury definitions, as well as the implications choices may have on the outcome of study results.
