Objectives Groin injuries are common in professional male football and result in significant complaints, time-loss and cost. We aimed to study: 1. Normal values of hip muscle strength and self-reported hip and groin function (Hip And Groin Outcome Score (HAGOS)). 2. Changes in these values throughout the season. 3. If previous (groin) injuries, leg...

Sport injuries can have a major impact on the career of Physical Education (PE) students. They can lead to physical limitations, absence from sport classes and study delay. This study aims to investigate the magnitude of the injury problem and to explore the risk. Prior to the start of the academic year, all PE students underwent a sports medical e...

The European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF) is a biennial sporting event of nine Olympic Summer Sports for talented athletes, aged 13-18 years, from all over Europe. To analyse the injuries and illnesses that occurred during the multisport event (14-19 July 2013), with the long-term aim of enabling international sports federations, the National Olym...

Objective: to compare the incidence and characteristics of injuries between Dutch amateur and professional male soccer players during one entire competition season. Design: a prospective two-cohort design. Methods: during the 2009-2010 season, 456 Dutch male amateur soccer players and 217 professional players were prospectively followed. Informatio...

Background The incidence of soccer (football) injuries is among the highest in sports. Despite this high rate, insufficient evidence is available on the efficacy of preventive training programmes on injury incidence. Objective To systematically study the evidence on preventive exercise-based training programmes to reduce the incidence of injurie...

Is an injury prevention program consisting of 10 exercises designed to improve stability, muscle strength, co-ordination, and flexibility of the trunk, hip and leg muscles (known as The11) cost effective in adult male amateur soccer players? Cost-effectiveness analysis of a cluster-randomised controlled trial. 479 adult male amateur soccer players...
Article
Hamstring injuries are common injuries in soccer players. In view of the high incidence and the serious consequences, identifying risk factors related to hamstring injuries is essential. The aim of this systematic review was therefore to identify risk factors for hamstring injuries in male adult soccer players. PubMed, Embase/Medline, Cumulative In...
Article
Background Approximately 16% of all sports injuries in the Netherlands are the result of playing outdoor soccer. Objective The aim of this intervention study is to investigate the cost-effectiveness of an injury prevention program ('The11' from FIFA) in male amateur soccer players. The hypothesis is that the 'The11' exercises have a beneficial effe...
Article
Background Compliance with and attitudes towards injury prevention programs, like 'The11' (from FIFA), can influence the effectiveness of such programs. Objective The aim of this study is to monitor the use of the 'The11' during practice sessions in one season and to determine opinions of coaches and players concerning this program. Design This stu...

Approximately 16% of all sports injuries in the Netherlands are caused by outdoor soccer. A cluster-randomised controlled trial has been designed to investigate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of an injury prevention programme ('The11') for male amateur soccer players. The injury prevention programme The11, developed with the support of th...

... Two previous studies have investigated changes in HAGOS in a cohort of athletes over time. 9 17 Our study demonstrated significant changes in HAGOS score across the entire cohort of elite GAA players but with small or trivial effect size changes, apart from the PA subscale. On an individual level the results suggest that approximately 80% of players will maintain their HAGOS score within the SDC for each subscale, while up to approximately 20% of players will demonstrate a significant change to their HAGOS score, either in the form of an increase or a decrease. ...
... In addi-29 tion, 48% to 96% of ACL injuries occur in non-contact 30 episodes in young athletes [23]. However, increasing 31 medical treatment costs, especially in females, are sig- 32 nificantly higher for knee injuries than in males [24]. 33 Neuromuscular training (NMT) programs can signif-34 icantly decrease the risk of knee injuries among male 35 and female athletes [25,26]. ...
... In soccer, which is the most popular sport worldwide, hamstring injuries represent between 15 and 50 % of all muscle injuries, the highest percentage of hamstring injuries among the sports that have been assessed as a percentage of the players' numbers [13][14][15] . Furthermore , these injuries require extensive treatment and long rehabilitation periods (of more than a month) [5,[16][17][18][19][20], with a high recurrence rate of 12–33 %, even with preventive procedures [5, 17, 21]. Previous hamstring injury is the greatest risk factor for development of a future hamstring injury [13]. ...
... Epidemiological data from a variety of international sports tournaments over shorter (9-18 days) and longer (months) durations, show 50% of all acute illness affects the respiratory tract (RT). [10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26] Acute respiratory tract illness (RTill) includes many sub-categories by anatomical location (e.g. upper vs. lower RT) and pathology (infective vs. non-infective). ...
... The range was from 2.84 [67] to 47.7 [43] in elite young soccer players, and from 1.8 [92] to 24.67 [65] in non-elite young soccer players. Although differences in injury risk between elite and non-elite groups have been investigated in adult soccer players [115], there is a lack of information in young soccer players. The higher injury rate found during training and, in particular, during matches may be explained by the higher play intensity that increases with the competitive level. ...
... Este estudio aplicado a deportistas caucanos encontró clínicamente una reducción en la tasa de incidencia de lesión posterior a la implementación del programa preventivo, sin embargo, esta no fue estadísticamente significativa. La revisión sistemática presentada por Van Beisterveldt en 2013 muestra evidencia contradictoria de la efectividad de programas de ejercicios preventivos para reducir las lesiones en el fútbol; esto puede deberse a la multiplicidad en el tipo e intensidad de los programas de entrenamiento (23). Otro aspecto que puede generar o no efectividad de los programas es el cumplimiento por parte de los atletas, puesto que tiene un efecto positivo con respecto a los resultados esperados (24). ...
... Con esto claro, el entrenamiento excéntrico de los isquiotibiales se ha posicionado como una de las estrategias más costo-efectivas para prevenir este tipo de lesiones (12). Se ha sugerido que el entrenamiento excéntrico produce un aumento de la longitud y la fuerza de este grupo muscular favoreciendo el correcto desarrollo de la práctica deportiva (13). ...
... After a quick forward swing, to gain stronger forward momentum, athletes commonly tend to be more proactive in completing the movement of touching the ground by pressing down quickly and swinging the leg backward [65]. The hamstring muscles are always active throughout the gait cycle; because of the need to swing and contact the ground, they quickly switch between eccentric and concentric contraction [66,67]. The sudden change in hamstrings' function between the rapid, steady flexion activity and extension has been postulated to cause acute injury [67,68]. ...
... Twenty-three randomized controlled trials, with a total of 18,215 subjects, were included in the literature for analysis. A total of 15,049 lower extremity injury subjects from 15 publications were included in the overall effect test for the overall effect analysis ( Figure 4) [4,5,19,22,27,[39][40][41][42][43][44][45][46][47]. The results suggested an effect size of RR = 0.72 (95% CI: 0.71-0.80; ...
... Football is known for its fast-paced and intensive activities from a professional standpoint [1,2], which certainly contributes to a higher injury risk during the season [3]. Sports injuries not only negatively affect the players' careers but also the performance of their teams and clubs [3][4][5][6][7][8][9]. It is one of the most significant issues that professional football players must face [10]. ...
