Abstract

This study investigated the injuries sustained by elite Australian sport aerobic athletes in the 12 months prior to the FISAF world's sport aerobics championships in May/June 2004. Data was collected using a retrospective questionnaire developed from published research in similar areas. This study is important in establishing the prevalence and rate of injury in elite sport aerobic athletes and provides a basis for further research. This minor thesis was written by a post graduate student as part of the requirements of the Master of Health Science (Osteopathy) program.
