Preventing injuries in female high school athletes: What are the barriers?

Injuries to female high school athletes are common and can result not only in less participation, but also may lead to long-term consequences that include chronic pain, decreased function, and a decrease in lifetime physical activity. Home-based injury prevention programs may be effective in reducing these injuries, but research is limited. In this issue of WMJ, researchers explore barriers to compliance in a home-based injury prevention program.
