Risk Factors for Muscle Injury: Can Adaptability and Neuroplasticity Improve the Risks?

Ricard Pruna Grive, Khatija Bahdur


Risk factors associated with sport injury is well researched but without a decrease in injury occurrence in football. The multifactorial nature of injury risk is accepted. A greater understanding is needed of the effect of interactions between risk factors that converts routine action into a triggering event ending in a non-contact muscular injury. Adapting the possible modification of risk factor paradigm to fast and slow modifiable and using an integrative approach that combines the neuroplasticity and perceptual- cognitive, musculoskeletal, psychological profiles with situational may have greater practical significance. Neuroplasticity must be considered as a tool to modify risk factors.
