The identification of risk factors for sports injury, and estimation of injury risk, is important to informing decision-making around player selection in team sports. One type of injury that is pervasive in team sport are ?subsequent injuries? (i.e., a recurrence or new injury sustained upon the resumption of activity following a previous injury). The aetiological factors and nature of subsequent injury risk are poorly understood. This PhD aimed to address this knowledge gap by (i) quantifying the subsequent injury risk encountered by athletes returning from injury, and (ii) examining the potential role of athlete workloads on this risk.
