Abstract [en]

The next work describes the injuries incidence, severity, type and anatomical distribution of a male field hockey team from the honour division and one Spanish first division soccer team. Field hockey is a sport that, up to date, has had a limited scientific follow-up and we just have few investigation studies from a methodological point of view. Most of the existing works had a retrospective methodology and are just for a concrete competitions or championships. Our study provides, in addition, a comparison between the most frequent injuries in each of the sports and between the risks factors that can produce them according with the diagnosis and classification of the UEFA model for the study of injuries in professional football. The results show us a major lesional incidence in field hockey in spite of having fewer exposition hours than football along the season. This fact, as it is commented in the discussion, can be made clear by the semiprofessional character of this sport. There is also targeted that the distribution of the most frequent injuries is in certain relation comparing both sports. It is also the first comparative study in our country of injury incidence between these sports, and the first prospective study in field hockey, waiting to serve as a starting point for more studies about it.
