Translating 1000-hour Injury Rates Into Expected Weekly Injury Counts
In this study, we explain the injury rates reported in large-scale studies in simple terms so that a team may find them more helpful in assessing their injury context.
You will also find in this study:
- Explanation of the different scenarios representing training practices at the elite level of football.
- Injury rate per actual week of (training and match) exposure rather than the typical 1000 hours of exposure.
- Why teams may expect from 1 to 2 hamstring injuries a month—for a total number of days lost of 150 to 350 per year (5 to 12 months).
