Higher Leg Injury Risk in Previously Injured Athletes
A new study shows that physical therapy and injury prevention efforts needs to consider the risk other injuries pose for subsequent leg injuries.
According to lead study author Liam Toohey of La Trobe University in Australia, “When we are injured we generally only focus on the body part that is being rehabilitated, yet it is just as important to keep the non-injured parts of your body healthy and injury free.”
In order to minimise the risk of future leg injuries, it is important to account for the parts of the body that carry most of the load in the particular sport the athlete is engaged in. Mental well-being is also important and known to influence the chances of sustaining an injury.
