The Importance of Exercise to Prevent Injuries in Athletes

2019-09-10 01:23:25 | BioPortfolio


Introduction: running is one of the most accessible and practiced sports in the world since the 21st century. Unfortunately, the incidence of injuries in the population that practices it is high regardless of experience, although the risk of injury increases in amateur runners. One of the main keys to reduce the incidence of running related injuries may be to improve the ability to reduce the load or impact. For this, there are different strategies such as a gradual increase in the load to run, and exercise within which is muscle strengthening and balance training or proprioception.

Objective: to verify the effectiveness of a program of proprioceptive exercises based on the static and dynamic balance for the reduction of lower limb injuries in amateur runners during the competition season.


Methodology: 66 amateur runners, after simple size calculation, will be randomized into two groups. Experimental group will carry out the proprioceptive exercise program during 8 weeks at the begining of the season and control group will continue with their usual training routine. The main variable running related injury will be collected weekly during the follow-up.

Results: When all the data needed for the study has been collected, researchers gathers results and exports them for statistical interpretation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.

Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.

A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.

Nutritional physiology related to EXERCISE or ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE.
