BackgroundThe promotion of sport and physical activity (PA) for children is widely recommended to support a healthy lifestyle, but being engaged in sport bears the risk of sustaining injuries. [] Key MethodData SourcesAn Internet-based literature search was conducted in six databases (CINAHL, Cochrane, EMBASE, ISI Web of Science, PubMed, SPORTDiscus) using the following search terms with Boolean conjunction: (sport injur* OR athletic injur* OR sport accident*) AND (prevent* OR prophylaxis OR avoidance) AND…
Neuromuscular training injury prevention strategies in youth sport: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
There is evidence for the effectiveness of neuromuscular training strategies in the reduction of injury in numerous team sports, but lack of uptake and ongoing maintenance of such programmes is an ongoing concern.
Exercise-Based Interventions for Injury Prevention in Tackle Collision Ball Sports: A Systematic Review
TLDR
There is evidence that exercise-based injury preventions can be beneficial in reducing injury risk in collision sports, but more studies of high methodological quality are required.
General versus sports-specific injury prevention programs in athletes: A systematic review on the effects on performance
TLDR
Sports-specific IPPs have the strongest influence on most performance indices based on the significant improvement versus control groups, and other factors such as intensity, technical execution and compliance should be accounted for in future investigations in addition to exercise modality.
Prevention of sports injuries in children at school: a systematic review of policies
TLDR
Robust, evidence-based policies for reducing injury risk in school sports are limited and guidelines with the largest evidence base were focused on concussion, with other school sport guidelines showing limited inclusion of evidence.
General versus sports-specific injury prevention programs in athletes: A systematic review on the effect on injury rates
TLDR
This systematic review aimed to present the available evidence on how general and sports-specific prevention programs affect injury rates in athletes and found the general and mixed programs positively affects injury rates.
Exercise-based injury prevention in football
TLDR
There is convincing evidence that multimodal exercise-based injury prevention programs (IPP) can reduce injury incidence by more than 30% in athletes of different age groups and in both genders and a major gap between research on the short-term efficacy and long-term intervention strategies remains.
Dose-Response Relationship of Neuromuscular Training for Injury Prevention in Youth Athletes: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
This meta-analysis revealed that NMT performed in short bouts of 10–15 min, two to three times per week, with a weekly training volume of 30–60 min had the largest preventive effect for lower extremity injuries in youth athletes.
Economic evaluations of strategies to prevent sports and recreational injury among children and adolescents: a systematic review
TLDR
Future economic evaluations should incorporate time horizons sufficient to capture changes in long-term health and use utility-based outcome measures in order to capture individual preferences for changes in health states and facilitate comparison across intervention types.
Closing the gap on injury prevention: the Oslo Sports Trauma Research Centre four-platform model for translating research into practice
THE ‘PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING’ Despite the welldocumented positive effects on injury risk, far too few athletes implement injury prevention exercises and programmes in their daily training. Reallife

TLDR
The last year of publications related to sports injury prevention in the pediatric population is examined, finding that avoidance of overtraining and providing adequate rest for recovery are essential for pediatric and adolescent athletes.

TLDR
Active prevention programmes focusing specifically on the upper extremity are scarce and home-based programmes could be inferior to supervised training, but are efficient if compliance is high.

How Effective are Exercise-Based Injury Prevention Programmes for Soccer Players?
TLDR
Conflicting evidence has been found for the effectiveness of exercise-based programmes to prevent soccer injuries and high-quality studies investigating the best type and intensity of exercises in a generic training programme are needed to reduce the incidence of injuries in soccer effectively.

TLDR
It is important to convince medical doctors, physical therapists, athletic trainers and coaches, as well as athletes, of the necessity to implement active prevention measures in their therapy and training programs, thus decreasing the injury and re-injury rate and enhancing athletic performance.
