Effect of Neuromuscular Warm-up on Injuries in Female Athletes
Effect of Neuromuscular Warm-up on Injuries in Female Athletes in Urban Public High Schools: A Cluster-randomized Controlled Trial
The goal of the study is to determine effect of coach-led neuromuscular warm-up on non-contact, lower extremity (LE) injury rates among female athletes in a predominantly non-white public high school system. The investigators hypothesized the warm-up would reduce non-contact LE injuries.
We will recruit basketball and soccer coaches and their athletes from Chicago public high schools. We will randomize teams to intervention and control groups. We will train intervention coaches to implement a 20-minute neuromuscular warm-up and tracked training costs. Control coaches will use their usual warm-up. All coaches will report weekly athlete exposures (AEs) and injuries resulting in a missed practice/game. Research assistants will interview injured athletes. We will compare injury rates between control and intervention groups.
