"Injury prevention has often been the less enticing sibling to athletic performance in high performance sport. There is burgeoning research to suggest that they are far more closely related. The aim of this presentation is to provide an understanding on the role of workload in the aetiology model of athletic performance and injury. The role of load is often construed as the vehicle that can drive athletes towards an injury however if used appropriately it is the vehicle that drive them away from injury. A recent model of comparing what the athlete is doing compared with what they are prepared for has shown consistent risk factors across a number of sports. There has been some debate on the best way for these models to be derived and the evidence for and against is in its early stage. Application of this model in the early preparation, return to sport and daily training environment will be discussed."
