Objective: Sports injuries are an inevitable part of sports activities. Therefore, investigating the causes and prevention strategies of these injuries is a crucial matter. Considering the importance of the effect sports injuries on peoples lives and overshadowing all their activities in daily life and sport's professional life, it is highly recommended to prevent injuries and reduce the time of being away from training and competitions in elite badminton players. Therefore, this study aimed to systematically review researches related to badminton injuries in order to draw a practical and comprehensive conclusion from the previously conducted studies in the field.
Methods: In this study, we reviewed researches conducted on badminton injuries between 2000-2021. Articles were searched in specific databases and 32 articles were selected based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. In addition, PEDro scale was used to evaluate the quality of the articles.
Results: The results showed that amateur players had a higher incidence of injuries than the professional ones and those occurred during training were higher compared to those of competition. The prevalence of acute and mild injuries is higher than chronic and moderate ones. In addition, overuse injuries are more common in the knee and shoulder. Based on the level of competition it was found that the prevalence of injury in national and world competitions is more common, due to trauma and overuse, in the lower- back, knees and shoulders respectively. Moreover, most soft tissue injuries such as ankle sprain is commonly experienced by amateur players in training and practice. The comparison of the upper and lower extremity injuries demonstrated that the highest prevalence of injuries in the upper limbs is related to the wrists, shoulders, and lower- back, and the prevalence of injuries in the shoulder joint is less than the lower- back. In the lower extremity, ankle and knee are more predisposed to injury respectively.
Conclusion: Drawing on this research, the occurrence of injury in badminton apparently goes back to numerous factors. In this study, the causes and factors of injury in this sport are mentioned. To reduce the incidence of injuries caused by badminton, it is necessary to take all these factors into consideration.
