Injury reduction strategies for sports and physical activity: D2-520/2016E-PDF

strategies for action : science working for you.

"50% of Canadian Forces injuries occur during sports and physical activity and research shows that 80 to 95% of all injuries are preventable. These preventable injuries have a significant negative impact on the operational readiness of the CF. Considering the above, injury prevention is an important responsibility that is shared by everyone in the CF. After carefully reviewing the scientific literature, 21 strategies were identified to help reduce the incidence of injuries to yourself, your unit and the CF in general. Please note that these strategies may need to be adapted to the unique operational needs of the CF."--Overview.
