  • Impact of Injuries on Readiness
    Musculoskeletal injuries are the number one threat to readiness. This paper chronicles the references that support the use of the Navy Operational Fitness and Fueling System (NOFSS) as a means of reducing physical training injuries through multi-dimensional, multi-planar motion in a physical training program.
  • Leading Injuries, Causes and Mitigation Recommendations
    The DoD Military Injury Prevention Priorities Working Group (DMIPPWG) was tasked to identify the leading causes of injuries among military personnel across DoD, create a process for establishing an evidence-based ranking of DoD prevention priorities, develop a proposal for a DoD-wide process for analysis, and provide recommendations for intervention initiatives. The white paper is available by request.
  • Navy Injury Prevention Current Practices and Initiatives
    The Phase I Navy Injury Prevention Current Practices and Initiatives report was developed for the purpose of providing an overview of Navy injury prevention current practices and initiatives to the Navy Musculoskeletal Continuum of Care Advisory Board (MCCAB). The report was commissioned to identify the Department of the Navy Injury Prevention Current Practices and Initiatives for the years 2000-2010. This report is part of a multi-phase project and provides a baseline compilation of injury prevention efforts, and presents information on injury prevention from four sectors including military unique settings (e.g. physical training, tactical exercises), work related activities (e.g. lower back injuries), non-work related injuries (e.g. sports/recreational activities) and motor vehicle accidents.
