Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund

Orientering är en sport som går ut på att navigera löpandes mellan kontroller, ofta i skogsterräng.

Problemformulering

Det saknas nya studier om skadeförekomsten bland elitorienterare.

Syfte

Studera skadeförekomst och typ av skador bland elitorienterare samt undersöka skadeskillnader mellan könen och de som tränar mest på mjukt respektive hårt underlag.

Metod

Studien var en tvärsnittstudie som genomfördes genom att en webbenkät skickades via e-post till de 50 bäst rankade kvinnorna och 50 bäst rankade männen i Sverige.

Resultat

Svarsfrekvensen var 85 % (n = 77). Av deltagarna rapporterade 77 % minst en skada under 12 månader med högsta förekomsten under augusti månad. Vanligaste skadeområdet var fot med fotledsstukning och akillestendinopati som vanligaste skadediagnoser. Fler män än kvinnor rapporterade skada i området bål, i övrigt sågs inga signifikanta skillnader mellan könen eller de som tränade mest på mjukt respektive hårt underlag.

Slutsats

Det är vanligt med skador bland elitorienterare. Fotskador dominerar skadeförekomsten och minskning av skador borde kunna ske genom preventivt arbete.

Background

Orienteering is a sport in which the competitor runs and navigates between checkpoints usually in the forest.

Problem

No studies have been conducted recently about the injury incidence in orienteering.

Aim

To study the prevalence and type of injuries most common in orienteering. Furthermore, to examine the differences in reported injuries between gender and participants who mainly train on soft surface compared to hard surface.

Method

A cross-sectional study was conducted through an online questionnaire emailed to the 50 best ranked men and the 50 best ranked women in Sweden.

Results

The response rate was 85 % (n = 77). Of the participants 77 % reported at least one injury during 12 months, with the highest incidence during the month of August. It was most common to have an injury in the foot. Ankle sprain and achilles tendonopathy were the most common diagnoses. More men than women reported injuries in the trunk area. Otherwise, no significant differences were found between genders or between those running mainly on soft surface versus hard surface.

Conclusion

It is common with injuries in orienteering. Injuries in the foot are most common and elite orienteers would probably gain from more specific training to prevent injuries.
