The article presents evidence on the effectiveness of interventions for sports-related injuries. The use of insoles, external joint supports, and multi-intervention training programs can reduce sports injuries. Stretching and warm-up programs and modified footwear did not reduce injuries. The evidence indicated mixed results for balance-board training programs, mouth guards, and videos.
