Sports Injury Research

Oxford University Press

This chapter deals with the pragmatic method to translate injury risk factors and mechanisms to preventive measures. In theory, one finds modifiable injury risk factors and translates these into interventions aimed at diminishing or eradicating these risk factors. There are some practical tools that can be used in this process, e.g. the Haddon matrix. The chapter shows how this process works and what steps need to be taken.
