Epidemiology of Sports Injuries in Nigeria...
In Nigeria prevention is our cure…! Prevention of injuries should always be a priority and is even more important when treatment possibilities are restricted, as in many parts of Africa (Constantinou, 2010). ….documenting injury epidemiology and conducting injury surveillance studies is fundamental and first step in the sequence of prevention on sports injuries.
We hope to have a Nigerian Model for Sports Injury Prevention in the nearest future.
