Injury prevention becomes increasingly important. Essential precondition for this is an understanding of risk factors and injury mechanisms. Prevention strategies aim to modify intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Extrinsic factors, i.e. external conditions or rules can only be modified in parts and effectiveness is not yet proven. Intrinsic factors aim particularly to changeovers of problematic movements by prevention programs. There is moderate evidence that prevention programs based on neuromuscular training can reduce the injury rate. Most effective component is plyometrics with high intensity. The integration of prevention programs in training is recommended.
