Nassis, George P. and Brito, Joao and Figueiredo, Pedro and Gabbett, Tim J. (2019) Injury prevention training in football: let’s bring it to the real world [Editorial]. British Journal of Sports Medicine, 53 (21). pp. 1328-1329. ISSN 0306-3674


Abstract

Overall injury rates remain high in elite football despite the significant research on injury prevention. One of the reasons is the players’ low adherence to injury prevention programmes due to their experience of muscle soreness and ‘heavy legs during the match’. Additionally, prevention training compliance may be reduced due to the ‘desire to perform as much training as possible with the team’. This
may be the reality in high-level football, but can we do better? This editorial aims to present evidence-based approaches for improving injury prevention implementation in real-world settings.
