Retrospektivna analiza športnih poškodb pri igralcih

(Retrospective analysis of sports injuries among Slovenian badminton players)

The purpose of our study was to highlight sport injuries suffered by Slovenian badminton players, their frequency and possible risk factors such as previous injury, years of training, training hours and gender. Twenty-six elite Slovenian badminton players participated in the study. A questionnaire was used to indicate any injuries incurred in a one-year period. The main findings show that acute injuries of the shoulder and ankle are the most frequent problem of elite Slovenian badminton players. Gender does not seem to influence the risk of injury, but previous injury was associated with a slightly increased injury risk for shoulders. The main difference between players with and without a shoulder injury was the amount of training hours which was 1.37 times lower in the injured group.
