Military Training-Related Injuries in Females

Risk factors for training-related injuries among females in the military

A scoping review to identify factors that increase risks of musculoskeletal injuries during training of female military personnel aged 18-55 years.

Findings from this scoping review will provide a framework for an increased understanding of the risk of musculoskeletal injuries to female military members. The Canadian Armed Forces will use the evidence resulting from this review to inform development of future mitigation strategies for positive changes in injury rates, while up-holding gender-free fitness standards. It is anticipated that the findings may also benefit other professionals and industries involving manual labour (e.g., factories, construction, first responders).
