Abstract. This prospective randomized intervention investigated whether training on a balance board could reduce the amount of traumatic injuries of the lower extremities in female soccer players. A total of 221 female soccer players from 13 different teams playing in the second and third Swedish divisions volunteered to participate in the study. Seven teams (n=121) were randomized to an intervention group and six teams (n=100) to a control group and were followed during one outdoor season… Expand
Neuromuscular training and the risk of leg injuries in female floorball players: cluster randomised controlled study
TLDR
A neuromuscular training programme was effective in preventing acute non-contact injuries of the legs in female floorball players and can be recommended in the weekly training of these athletes. Expand
Prevention of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries in Female Team Handball Players: A Prospective Intervention Study Over Three Seasons
TLDR
This study shows that it is possible to prevent anterior cruciate ligament injuries with specific neuromuscular training and introduced to female team handball players in the autumn of 1999 and revised before the start of the season in 2000. Expand
Proprioceptive training (balance exercises) reduces lower extremity injuries in young soccer players
TLDR
The application of a specific balance training program on healthy young soccer players can improve their proprioception and prevent low limb injuries. Expand
Functional Performance in Female Soccer Players Before and After Knee Injury Prevention Training
TLDR
This brief injury prevention programme seemed to improve muscular strength and endurance in the lower extremities of female soccer players when performed for three months and evaluated on four selected functional tests. Expand
THE EFFECTS OF A COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE WARM‐UP PROGRAM ON LANDING MECHANICS IN FEMALE YOUTH SOCCER PLAYERS
TLDR
Lower extremity kinematics following implementation of the Sportsmetrics Warm-Up for Injury Prevention and Performance (WIPP) training program indicate that 8 weeks of WIPP training did not significantly alter landing strategies. Expand
The Effect of a Proprioceptive Balance Board Training Program for the Prevention of Ankle Sprains
TLDR
Significantly fewer ankle sprains in the intervention group were found compared to the control group, and a significant reduction in ankle sprain risk was found only for players with a history of ankle sprain. Expand
Prevention of acute knee injuries in adolescent female football players: cluster randomised controlled trial
TLDR
A neuromuscular warm-up programme significantly reduced the rate of anterior cruciate ligament injury in adolescent female football players, however the absolute rate difference did not reach statistical significance, possibly owing to the small number of events. Expand
Efficacy of a sports specific balance training programme on the incidence of ankle sprains in basketball.
TLDR
Based on these pilot results, the use of balance training is recommended as a routine during basketball activities for the prevention of ankle sprains and proprioceptive balance training should become a part of the training routine. Expand
[Prospective proprioceptive and coordinative training for injury reduction in elite female soccer].
TLDR
An additional proprioceptive-coordinative training intervention increases coordinative abilities, jump power, throwing power, and flexibility during a half season, and the incidence of muscle injuries resulting in an absence of at least one game or practice session was reduced significantly by 400 %.

Preventing knee injuries in adolescent female football players – design of a cluster randomized controlled trial [NCT00894595]
TLDR
If the warm-up program is proven to be effective in reducing the incidence of knee injury, it can have a major impact by reducing the future knee injury burden in female football as well as the negative long-term disabilities associated with knee injury. Expand

TLDR
Using an intervention programme designed to reduce the number of injuries in young female players in European handball, with special emphasis on injuries in the lower extremities, indicated that using the intervention programme decreased the numbers of both traumatic and overuse injuries significantly.

Prevention of soccer injuries
TLDR
It is concluded that the pro posed prophylactic program, including close supervi sion and correction by doctors and physiotherapists, significantly reduces soccer injuries. Expand

Epidemiology and traumatology of injuries in elite soccer: a prospective study in Finland
TLDR
A prospective study of male soccer injuries among 12 teams playing at the highest competition level was carried out in Finland in 1993, where two out of three players were injured during the whole season and 18 per cent of the injured players needed surgery. Expand
Soccer injuries among elite female players
TLDR
It is concluded that female elite soccer players sustain a high incidence of injury, with few injuries were major, but 17% of the players sustained a major knee injury during the year. Expand
Soccer injuries and their relation to physical maturity.
TLDR
The boys with the highest incidence of injury were tall (greater than 165 cm) and had a weak grip, suggesting that skeletally mature but muscularly weak boys may be more susceptible to injury while playing soccer with peers of the same chronological age. Expand

TLDR
One hundred and fifty players in a female senior soccer division, starting up a new season, were examined for past injuries and persisting symptoms, and the women showed a higher rate of previous patellar dislocations and fewer serious knee injuries. Expand
