Volleyball is a highly popular sport that has a large following across different age groups around the world.

A majority of young people participate in this competitive sport and, as in any other sport, are often exposed to a number of injuries.

Brazilian researchers sought to better understand the risk factors that are involved in the development of such injuries.

For this purpose, they gathered a total of 522 volleyball players participating in the High School Olympic Games of the State of São Paulo in Brazil.

The players were interviewed about the type of injuries experienced during a game particularly the area of injury, how it occurred and the moment of injury.

The following three causes of injury were considered in this study – injury due to direct contact caused as a result of events such as collision with an opponent or fall; contactless injuries due to the nature of the sport itself (for example, rapid changes in movement); overuse injuries caused due to repetitive stress over time.

The foot/ankle region was reported to be the most affected site of injury.

Some of the factors that were found to increase the risk of developing injuries included greater age, weight, height, training duration and body mass index.

The main causes of injury were listed as those caused either by direct contact or without any contact; the training phase was described as the moment in which injuries were reported.

MASS4D® Insoles are a great way to prevent injuries in highly competitive sports such as volleyball. The supportive properties of these insoles ensures that feet with problem arches are able to move within their normal range of motion without being directly impacted by shock forces acting on the feet.

An advantage of using MASS4D® is the overall improvement in posture alignment. This means, you’re able to perform better with lesser chances of developing overuse injuries in any part of the lower body.
