Neue Publikation von Thomas Ertelt: Hamstring injury risk factors in elite sports: the role of muscle geometry and function

Prof. Dr. Thomas Ertelt, Professor für Bewegungswissenschaften an der DHGS Deutschen Hochschule für Gesundheit und Sport hat zusammen mit Thomas Gronwald einen Artikel zum Thema „Hamstring injury risk factors in elite sports: the role of muscle geometry and function“ veröffentlicht.

Abstract:

Injuries of the muscle‐tendon complex are one of the most frequent non‐contact injuries in sports. Particularly in team sports such as football, the demands of the game result in a large number of risk factors. Ekstrand and colleagues1 observed that each team experiences 50 injuries in every season and the hamstrings are most affected. Of these injuries, 83% affect the biceps femoris (BF) muscle2. Current studies show that despite injury prevention programs, the rate of hamstring injuries has increased by more than 4% in recent years.
