Hamstring strains are one of the primary injuries within modern soccer match-play. The injury is well recognised by medical personnel, coaches and athletes as a major concern causing significant financial costs and lost time from training and matches. The temporal pattern of hamstring injury incidence during matches has shown almost half of all injuries to occur during the latter stages of each half, thus suggesting fatigue as an important contributing factor for injury. This thesis comprises four experimental chapters that examine the effect of multidirectional soccer-specific fatigue on the primary aetiological risk factors and mechanism of injury. This was then used to create and evaluate an injury prevention programme aimed at reducing the risk of hamstring strains in soccer.
