Abstract
Thesis (M.Ed.)--North-West University, Potchefstroom Campus, 2007. Background: The multiplicities of factors, which may contribute to injury from sporting activity, and the complexity of the relations among them, indicate that identifying causal mechanisms poses a challenge to epidemiologists. The identification of risk factors associated with the effect of the injury on subsequent participation may be as important in understanding how to reduce the burden of injuries on sports participants, as identifying factors associated with the injury incidence rate. Aim: The aim of this study was to develop a biomechanical, antbropometrical, physical, motor and injury epi...
