Compulsory military service entails a change in the patterns of physical activity of many conscripts, and an accompanying risk of musculoskeletal injury. The present study was carried out to determine the incidence and types of musculoskeletal injury among Norwegian conscripts, and their consequences in the form of sick leave and discharge from the service. The study population consisted of 6488 conscripts in all, drawn from the Army, the Air Force and the Navy. They were monitored through an… Expand
[Sport-related injuries and conditions among French military personnel].
TLDR
A new approach to exercise has been developed to reduce the frequency of sport-related injuries and conditions in the French armed forces in 2011, and it was found that men were more likely to be injured, except during the first four months of service. Expand
Musculoskeletal disorders in physically active conscripts: a one-year follow-up study in the Finnish Defence Forces
TLDR
Preventive measures during military service should be targeted at decreasing low back pain and lower limb overuse injuries, because these inflict the largest burden of MSDs and tend to have a chronic nature. Expand
Musculoskeletal injuries in British Army recruits: a prospective study of diagnosis-specific incidence and rehabilitation times
TLDR
The combination of high incidence and lengthy rehabilitation indicates that medial tibial stress syndrome had the greatest impact on training, accounting for almost 20% of all days spent in rehabilitation. Expand
Injury proneness in infantry conscripts undergoing a physical training programme: smokeless tobacco use, higher age, and low levels of physical fitness are risk factors

TLDR
Risks of injury according to age, body composition, previous physical activity, physical fitness, use of smokeless tobacco (moist snuff) and smoking habits were determined in a population of 480 male conscripts in the army. Expand
EPIDEMIOLOGY OF PHYSICAL INJURIES RESULTED FROM MILITARY TRAINING COURSE
TLDR
Musculoskeletal injuries were the major cause of referring to clinic and the most prevalence type of physical injuries in military personnel during the military trainings. Expand
Prevalence of musculoskeletal injuries and a proposal for neuromuscular training to prevent lower limb injuries in Brazilian Army soldiers: an observational study
TLDR
It is indicated that the most frequent site of injury is the knee, and joint pain is the most common diagnosis, which may support the necessity to develop a neuromuscular training protocol to prevent lower limb injuries. Expand
Musculoskeletal injuries in British Army recruits: a prospective study of incidence in different Infantry Regiments
TLDR
The disparity in injury incidence and training outcome between Infantry Regiments suggests that the demands of training be taken into account when devising injury prevention strategies. Expand
Impact of Training Patterns on Injury Incidences in 12 Swiss Army Basic Military Training Schools
TLDR
Investigating the impact of different physical training patterns on incidences of injuries in 12 Swiss Army basic military training schools showed that high physical demands, decreasing development of distances covered on foot, monotony in weeklyPhysical demands, little time spent on sport-related physical training, and little time for night rest were significant risk factors for injuries.

Age, body composition, aerobic fitness and health condition as risk factors for musculoskeletal injuries in conscripts

  • 1996
TLDR
Age, height, weight, aerobic fitness, and health as assessed on the basis of a medical examination, of 912 male conscripts prior to an 8‐week period of basic military and physical training showed the same significance as in the univariate analyses. Expand
Sports And Training Injuries In British Soldiers: The Colchester Garrison Sports Injury And Rehabilitation Centre
TLDR
The first full review of the data collected by the Sports Injury and Rehabilitation Centre defines the injury patterns for trained soldiers rather than military recruits, and low back pain is identified as a major cause of morbidity in this population. Expand

Physical fitness, age, and injury incidence in infantry soldiers.
TLDR
The injury incidence in infantry soldiers is documents and younger age and low physical fitness as potential risk factors for these injuries are identified. Expand
Intrinsic risk factors for exercise-related injuries among male and female army trainees
TLDR
It is concluded that female gender and low aerobic fitness measured by run times are risk factors for training injuries in army trainees, and that other factors such as prior activity levels and stature may affect men and women differently. Expand
The South African Defence Force physical training programme. Part III. Exertion-related injuries sustained at an SADF basic training centre.
TLDR
The incidence and nature of exertion-related injuries were studied at a South African Defence Force basic training centre and leave little doubt that the present training programme is costly in terms of training-time lost and may prevent large numbers of recruits from deriving the optimum conditioning benefits.

Incidence of and Risk Factors for Injury and Illness among Male and Female Army Basic Trainees
TLDR
For females low level of prior physical activity was associated with increased risk of having an upper respiratory tract infection, while for males both slow mile times and low levels of prior activity were associated with risk of an upper nasal tract infection. Expand
Predicting lower-extremity injuries among habitual runners.
TLDR
The results suggest that the incidence of lower-extremity injuries is high for habitual runners, and that for those new to running or those who have been previously injured, reducing weekly distance is a reasonable preventive behavior. Expand
On the epidemiology of running injuries
TLDR
It is concluded that jogging injuries are frequent, that the number of firmly established etiologic factors is low, and that, in recom mending jogging, moderation should be the watchword. Expand
Stress fractures in the lower extremities of soldiers in basic training.
TLDR
Modifications in the physical training program aimed at eliminating continuous, high-impact activities during high-risk weeks resulted in a 12.73% drop in stress-fracture incidence, with significant sexual differences in the anatomic distribution of fractures. Expand

Rates of exercise injuries were relatively low and risk of injury in participants starting a walking, running, or jogging program was associated with age, sex, body mass index, flexibility, cardiorespiratory endur... Expand

TLDR
Although the results showed a greater increase in cardiorespiratory fitness for the 45-min duration and 5-day/week groups, these programs are not recommened for beginning joggers because of the significantly greater percent of injuries. Expand
