Soccer injuries: a review on incidence and prevention. Several investigators have studied the incidence and causes of soccer injuries in male professional players; however, epidemiological data on injuries in female soccer players are limited. From the data presented, it can be estimated that, on average, every elite male soccer player incurs approximat ….

The overall injury incidence rate was 6.8 per 1000 h soccer (games and practice) and the incidence rate of traumatic injury 9.1 and 1.5 per 1000 player-hours in games and practice, respectively ...
From the data presented, it can be estimated that, on average, every elite male soccer player incurs approximately one performance-limiting injury each year. Nine studies on the prevention of soccer injuries were found in the literature. There is some evidence that multi-modal intervention programmes result in a general reduction in injuries.

The present review on incidence and prevention of soccer injuries is structured following this sequence. 1. Incidence of Soccer Injury. In reviewing the literature on the exposure-related incidence of soccer injuries, the majority of studies focus on adult male professional players during the year (see table I ).
The incidence of injuries in soccer is mostly significant during games/matches, ranging from 9.5 to 48.7 injuries/1000 h among competitive male youth players, 2.5 to 8.7 injuries/1000 h among male professional players, and 12.5 to 30.3 injuries/1000 h among female players [9,10,11,12] (Table 2).
Also, the number of well controlled experimental studies on the prevention of soccer injuries is very limited. In different selected homogenous subgroups of the soccer population in Sweden and Denmark, different types of prevention proved to be successful in reducing the incidence and severity of soccer injuries.
Injury incidence in adult male soccer players range from 1.8 to 7.6 injuries per 1,000 training hours and from 10.2 to 35 injuries per 1,000 match hours . It is no wonder that many of the studies in soccer focus on tracking and analyzing injury data, with emphasis on injury prevention research.
Introduction. Soccer is the most popular sport worldwide, and participation in this sport can be associated with injuries.1 On average, an elite soccer player suffers from 1.5 to 7.6 injuries each 1,000 hours of training and 12 to 35 injuries each 1,000 hours of match.2,3 Kirkendall and Dvorak4 reported that the most common injured site was the lower limb (67.7%), followed by the upper limb ...
