The lumbar backbone was essentially the most generally and severely injured area in each sexes (four.three±zero.2, 9.9±1.4d). Shoulder accidents had been the second commonest in each sexes (three.1±zero.2) and with the second highest severity in males (7.three±1.4d). Knee accidents had been additionally widespread in males (2.three±zero.2) but probably decreased over time (zero.four±zero.6 RR) as pelvis/buttock accidents elevated (three.four±14.zero RR). Females had excessive trunk and stomach damage incidences (2.5±zero.three). Impartial of intercourse, the damage incidence elevated with age from 2.zero±zero.1 (13y) to 2.9±zero.1 (18y).
CONCLUSIONS: Regardless of no sex-based distinction in damage incidence, male accidents resulted in additional interrupted days of coaching/matchplay.
