Neuroscience approach to sports injuries: Injury prevention out of the box.
Last few years has seen a revolution in rehabilitation research and strategies for sports injuries. This has created a huge theoretical foundation but practically there is an increase in the injury incidence and reoccurrence mostly involving ACL and soft tissue pathologies. Injuries by itself occur mostly in a multi-stimuli environment, with players needing to simultaneously process information from various sensory organs. Although evidence supports neuromuscular training for effective injury prevention and rehabilitation, many of these approaches primarily target biomechanical factors, such as muscle strength, balance, and plyometric function, and give less consideration to cognitive or neurological components.Author(s): Georgios Kakavas
