Study of the Nature of Injuries Sustained while Undergoing Pre Commission Training and Recommend Measures to Decrease the Incidence of Injuries in Cadets at Pre Commission Training Academy / Cadet Training Wings

Dr DC Joshi


Abstract: A study was undertaken to document the nature of injuries sustained by cadets during basic military training. The injuries were documented retrospectively over a five years period and prospectively over a period of six months. As the data of injuries sustained during training by military cadets is sparse, this study focused on the incidence of injury , injury sites/locations, mode of injury and the outcome of injury on training. The main reason for the overuse injuries is the cumulative training load experienced by the novice trainee, accumulating over days, weeks or months. Majority of the injuries (86%) were mild in nature. Knee , leg, ankle and back were commonly injured in Male cadets, whereas pelvic injuries accompanied by leg, knee and ankle were common in lady cadets. Knee injuries, stress fractures and other fractures were the common cause for relegation and withdrawal from training. In order to reduce injuries during basic military training, attention must be directed towards modifying the type of training and prevention of bone stress injuries.
