The findings on strength training and stretching were similar across studies, even though the studies used different exercise programs and had different outcomes of interest. Therefore, the researchers suggested that these findings can be generalizable outside of this review. Proprioception was associated with a 52 percent decreased risk of sports injury, and multi-method programs led to a 37 percent decreased risk. The results from proprioception and multi-programs were not comparable across studies, so the findings on these two methods were less conclusive and generalizable than those on other methods. Some of the studies also considered whether or not the injury was acute (from a single event) or from overuse, and found that exercise programs were associated with a 38 percent decreased risk of acute injuries and a 47 percent decreased risk of overuse injuries.
