“To maximize the health benefits of sports and exercise and to minimize the direct and indirect costs associated with injuries, developing and adopting injury prevention strategies is an important goal…” Injury prevention increasingly draws the attention of professional and amateur athletes.

Injury prevention methods and training programmes – what works best?

The ECSS Position Statement ”Prevention of acute sport injuries”, now published in the European Journal of Sport Science (Volume 10, Issue 4) provides answers to these questions.

The ECSS Position Statement is now available for download on the ECSS website. Please do not hesitate to contact us, if you have any enquiries or request additional information.
