Assessing Causation in Sport Injury: A Multifactorial ModelMeeuwisse Willem H. M.D.;Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine: July 1994 Editorial: PDF Only Abstract Abstract: This article outlines principles relating to the assessment of risk factors and causation in sport injury. The limitations of a univariate exploration of risk factors are outlined, and a new model that permits the assessment of multiple risk factors is proposed. Applying this multivariate model may lead to greater success in predicting athletic injuries and help guide effective prevention strategies. © Lippincott-Raven Publishers.
