Surprisingly, despite the vast investment clubs make in nurturing young players, there is limited research related to youth footballer injury. One epidemiological study notes that 7-12% of all injuries are hip / groin related in nature (3). Epidemiology provide us with data that allow us to gauge the extent of a problem and arguably by these statistics one would suggest not that much and indeed, this was echoed at the FMA conference; I disagree. Epidemiological data is often derived from “time-loss” methodology whereby a players problem only contributes to the data when they are ‘absent’ from training or match play. (cont'd)
