Edited by Lund University. Lund - 2019

Elite sport poses the athlete at a risk for sustaining a sports-related injury or illness. As Paralympic athletes’ performances and professionalism are steadily improving, there is an increasing need to understand the epidemiology of sports-related injuries and illnesses in Paralympic athletes. Therefore, the overall aim of this thesis was to describe and gain an in-depth understanding of the epidemiology of sports-related injuries and illnesses in Swedish Paralympic athletes, in order to assist the future development of evidence-based preventive measures adapted for Paralympic athletes.
