The sixth volume of this important series presents the latest research on safety for researchers, coaches, players, parents, and anyone with a love and interest in the game.
Nine peer-reviewed papers provide key, timely information on preventing and decreasing the risk of both acute and long-term injury, particularly brain injury. With new technologies that provide further insight into the biomechanics of head impacts, we include research from experts related to other contact sports for a holistic and multi-disciplinary approach.
The research in this book will help provide better understanding of injuries and the mechanisms of those injuries, leading to better solutions and prevention techniques. Discussions include:
– background and data to help identify injury patterns
– biomechanical studies that provide new insight into injuries and injury mechanisms
– clinical observations of injured players
– strategies and tactics for mitigating injury frequency and severity
