Proprioceptive training has been shown to reduce the incidence of ankle sprains in different sports. [...] Key Method In a prospective controlled study of 600 soccer players in 40 semiprofessional or amateur teams, we studied the possible preventive effect of a gradually increasing proprioceptive training on four different types of wobble-boards during three soccer seasons. Three hundred players were instructed to train 20 min per day with 5 different phases of increasing difficulty.Expand
A Soccer-Specific Balance Training Program for Hamstring Muscle and Patellar and Achilles Tendon Injuries
TLDR
Football-specific balance training (protective balancing) can reduce noncontact hamstring injuries and patellar and Achilles tendinopathy and a dose-effect relationship between duration of balance training and injury incidence is evident. Expand
Could Neuromuscular and Proprioceptive Training Programs Prevent Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries in Womenâs Football
TLDR
It is believed that the absence of neuromuscular control of the knee joint, due to training deficiencies, developmental differences, or perhaps hormonal influences, lead to higher rates of injury in female athletes. Expand
Ruptures of the anterior cruciate ligament in soccer.
TLDR
Certain game events reported in the injury situations were shown to be related to player's age, standard and position, which confirmed observations from previous investigations on ACL ruptures in soccer and brought new findings to the literature. Expand
Effectiveness of a Neuromuscular and Proprioceptive Training Program in Preventing Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries in Female Athletes
TLDR
Using a neuromuscular training program may have a direct benefit in decreasing the number of anterior cruciate ligament injuries in female soccer players. Expand
Strength Training Programme to Prevent Lower Limb Injuries in Young Sports
TLDR
The incidence of knee and ankle injuries among young sports can be reduced by strength exercises programme, according to the randomly assigned groups. Expand
A Randomized Controlled Trial to Prevent Noncontact Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury in Female Collegiate Soccer Players
TLDR
A simple on-field alternative warm-up program, which focuses on neuromuscular control, appears to reduce the risk of anterior cruciate ligament injuries in collegiate female soccer players, especially those with a history of anterior cruiser ligament injury. Expand
SPORT PARTICIPATION AFTER INJURY OF ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT
TLDR
An overview of the current strategies for sport participation and rehabilitation after ACL injury is provided and adequate muscle strength and performance can be presented as main criterias for the returning to sport activities. 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 in ACL Injuries
The anterior cruciate ligament of the knee (ACL) is one of four primary ligaments holding the knee. As more women practice sports such as soccer and basketball, it has become increasingly apparentExpand
Return to Sport after Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction: A Literature Review
TLDR
Research has proven that a good rehabilitation program, with demanding criteria can reduce the risk of re-in injury, prepare the athlete to perform at the same pre-injury level and secure the safe transition of the player from physiotherapy to normal training. Expand

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
Incidence of soccer injuries and their relation to training and team success
TLDR
Redesign of the warm-up with more emphasis on flexibility and the addition of a cool-down is suggested to reduce injuries, and a high practice-to- game ratio seems to be advantageous. Expand
Proprioception after rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament. An objective indication of the need for surgery?
TLDR
Study of patients with unilateral ACL deficiency by measuring the latency of reflex hamstring contraction found a significant correlation between the differential latency and the frequency of 'giving way' indicating that functional instability may be due, in part, to loss of proprioception. 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
Effect of ankle disk training on postural control in patients with functional instability of the ankle joint.
TLDR
Increased postural sway in men with functional instability is found and the restored postural correction pattern do not tally with Freemans proprioceptive theory for postural control, but stresses the importance of central motor programs. Expand

TLDR
Football appears to be a safe activity for adolescents and children in the United States and injuries acquired during a program of youth soccer (under age 19) are quantitate and categorize. Expand
