Research saves knees from serious long-term health consequences
The study by Olsen et al «Exercises to prevent lower limb injuries in youth sports: cluster randomised controlled» from the Oslo Sports Trauma Research Center published in BMJ in 2005 is one of the ground-breaking trials recognized by PEDro.
This project was part of the PhD-work of associate professor Odd-Egil Olsen in 2005, and became a milestone study for the research on injury prevention and implementation at the Oslo Sports Trauma Research Center.
By applying this injury prevention exercise program into regular warm-up training routines, the risk for knee and ankle injuries could be reduced by a half.
Congratulations to the co-authors and supervisors associate professor Grethe Myklebust, and professors Lars Engebretsen, Ingar Holme, and Roald Bahr.
