Between 1978 and 1996 48 case of spinal injuries in Swedish ice hockey were identified in a retrospectiva survey. This is probably a reliable estimate of the number of spinal injuries in ice hockey players in Sweden. Fifteen of the players had a permanent neurologic damage. The majority of the injuries occurred during organized matches and 55% were in adult ice hockey. Checking from behind was the most common cause of injury.
