Recently published data showed a high incidence of injury in female adolescent soccer players in Denmark.
Researchers studied 424 injuries in 498 female soccer players between 15 and 18 years of age included in the Danish Football Association between February and June 2012. Injuries and exposure were self-reported weekly via weekly text message questionnaires and individual interviews. Injury and relative risk rates were calculated via Poisson regression.
