Sports injury prevention: Mission Possible!

‘Mission completed’ could be the headline for Myklebust et al who tell the story of how the incidence of ACL injury among female handball players in Norway has been kept low, 10 years after the publication of their successful intervention study. An inspirational read, emphasising how a step-by-step approach combined with hard work and persistence, can make a difference (that matters). This issue highlights Norway's systematic, consistent and long-term approach to addressing key research areas: sports injury prevention, active rehabilitation, women's health and physical activity medicine. It also celebrates BJSM welcoming the Norwegian Association of Sports Medicine and Physical Activity (NIMF) and the Norwegian Sports Physiotherapy Association (FFI) as member societies.
