Epidemiological and traumatological analyses of injuries in a danish volleyball club


, : Epidemiological and traumatological analyses of injuries in a danish volleyball club. Ugeskrift for Laeger 150(17): 1022-1023

A prospective study of senior players in a Danish volleyball club revealed an incidence of 2.8 injuries per 1,000 hours of play (2.1 during training and 5.7 during competitive games). Ankle and finger injuries were responsible for 25% and 33% respectively. Over-use injuries of the back and knee constituted 20%. The injuries resulted in only transient incapacity for playing. Most of the injuries occurred during attempts to receive and lift the ball and during landing after a jump. Seventy per cent continued to play after the injury. On follow-up examination after six months, 33% still had sequelae. Only 50% had been treated by doctors. Training of the strength and power of ankles and fingers may be instrumental in prevention of joint injuries. Training in the technique of receiving and lifting the ball should be intensified.
