In prospective season-long observation studies of handball, the lower extremity is marginally more frequently affected compared with the upper limb [1]. As with many other sports where physical contact occurs, the incidence of injury during match play of 13.5 injuries per 1000 h far exceeds training 0.8 injuries per 1000 h [2].
