Introduction: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the quality and quantity of sleep and the risk of sports injuries in teenage soccer players.
Materials and Methods: In this prospective study, 100 football players with the age range of 16-21 years were followed during a season of competitions in 2019-2019. The quality and quantity of sleep was evaluated by the questionnaire of Hooper et al. Injury data were collected using a standardized questionnaire. The participants were divided into two groups, healthy and injured, based on the occurrence of injury. Independent t-test was used to compare two groups and univariate generalized estimating equation (GEE) test was used to investigate the relationship between sleep quantity and quality with sports injuries. SPSS version 21 software was used for data analysis. A significance level of P<0.05 was considered.
Results: The quality and quantity of sleep of injured football players was significantly lower than that of healthy football players (P=0.03). The quality and quantity of soccer players' circadian rhythm has a significant relationship with the incidence of sports injuries (P=0.001). The odds ratio (OR) indicates that for each unit increase in the quality and quantity of sleep scale, the risk of sports injuries for soccer players increases by 4%.
Conclusion: The results of the present study showed that the duration and quality of sleep are indicators that have the ability to predict the occurrence of the risk of an athlete's injury.
