This article refers the overuse of children in club sporting.  This can easily translate to a career field as a trainer.  Pushing people beyond their limits or thinking the idea of "no pain, no gain" is something that can potentially cause injuries that work against the progress of an athlete.

Categorising sports injuries in epidemiological studies

Categorising sports injuries in epidemiological studies | Year 12 Sports Medicine | Scoop.it

Objective Sports injuries are often recurrent and there is wide recognition that a subsequent injury (of either the same or a different type) can be strongly influenced by a previous injury. Correctly categorising subsequent injuries (multiple, recurrent, exacerbation or new) requires substantial clinical expertise, but there is also considerable value in combining this expertise with more objective statistical criteria. This paper presents a new model, the subsequent injury categorisation (SIC) model, for categorising subsequent sports injuries that takes into account the need to include both acute and overuse injuries and ten different dependency structures between injury types.

Nicole Cattano's curator insight, August 23, 2013 11:01 AM

With the Little League World series currently playing, they often talk about pitch counts and how many days rest are required.

 

However, should we be concerned about pitch COUNT or pitch TYPE?  What if a pitcher throws 65 pitches and they are all curve balls vs. fast balls?

Mike Margolies's curator insight, May 3, 2013 12:08 PM

While there is an intuitive factor that makes me think of course this would be true, I think this sends a clear message about return to play. Perhaps we must make sure players are physically capable to return. Strong physically. I would think this coud even be traced back to a weaker core group. When an athlete over protects because of injury we see other types of injuries as well.
