What Causes Sports Injuries? Aetiology Models Explained
Why do injuries occur in sport? Injury aetiology/etiology models in sports medicine discuss how injuries happen. Before we try to reduce risk through injury prevention, it is important to first consider how they occur in the first place.
In this video, I discuss some of the most important injury aetiology models from the sports science research. How do injury risk factors interact? Is training load involved? What is a complex systems approach?
