Technical Reports


The following USAPHC technical reports focus primarily on sports and physical training-related injury, injury prevention, and injury risk factor identification. Each technical report contains a compendium of research and hundreds of hours of effort. Even though the research represents a military population, there is applicability for any organization that performs group physical training.
