Injury prevention is personal. Generic preventative exercise programmes are likely to modify some risk factors of injury, but the evidence proves that an individualised programme, designed specifically for each player, is considerably more effective. The first article in this series discussed risk factors of injury and outlined clinical tests that can screen for these risk factors, providing normative data to enable the medical team to identify those players at risk of injury. This article covers the next challenge which is to establish the best method for modifying these risk factors. It outlines the basic principles of designing an injury prevention programme, and examines the current research on the most commonly used methods in the field of injury prevention. This article contains a number of PDF exercise programmes, tables and a certificated elearning quiz.
