This injury assessment report examines the injury occurrence of two elite football teams across multiple seasons. The results show evidence of the impact objective, data-driven decisions can make on player management strategies to reduce the likelihood of injury.
We take an objective look at the best practices in monitoring hamstring strength in athletes to recognise when they are at risk of injury...
Hamstring injuries are a common injury risk in most field sports. New findings from the Kitman Labs' team suggests that risk factors for screening athletes for hamstring injuries are actually more flexible than previous research would suggest.
Soccer is a high demand sport involving continually changing complex movement patterns, which presents a wide variety of musculoskeletal injury risk factors.
Based on Kitman Labs research into player data collected from our Athlete Optimization SystemTM, we have noted that there is a distinct pattern of indicators preceding a hamstring injury that can be used to enhance injury monitoring and prevention protocols.
