Description

The purpose of this review of literature is to investigate the effectiveness of exercise for injury prevention in different sport populations. As sports become more popular, sport-related injuries are becoming more prevalent. This is concerning because these injuries could negatively affect the athletes later on in life. An injury intervention program’s main purpose is to help individuals better identify risky situations and teach them appropriate ways to fix and correct these problems before the injury even has a chance to occur. These programs usually include enhancing flexibility, strength, and agility. This research is inclusive, encompassing disabled athletes, adolescent athletes, and individuals dealing with pain due to the overuse of a particular muscle. Past studies show that injury prevention programs are an effective way of minimizing injury risk, enhancing an individual’s performance, and promoting quicker recovery from injury. Through conducting this review, it was determined that general injury prevention programs were not as effective as assumed, in that not all athletes’ risk categories were the same. Personalized injury prevention programs are shown to be more effective in moving individuals from a higher risk category to a lower risk category. This review of literature is significant because it allows sports programs to lower their athletes’ chances of receiving a life-altering injury simply by allowing them to conduct personalized warm-ups that target athletes’ areas of risk. This allows sports programs to ensure greater student safety and lower the statistics on the number of athletes injured each year.
