    Croatian abstract

    U posljednja tri destljeća znatno se povećao broj žena koje se natječu u sportskim aktivnostima na svim razinama. Povećano sudjelovanje žena je dovelo i do povećanog rizika od ozljeda, bilo akutno-traumatskih bilo onih uzrokovanih prenaprezanjem. Ozljede izazvane prenaprezanjem definiraju se kao neravnoteža izazvana preintenzivnim treniranjem bez odgovarajućeg odmora, što s vremenom dovodi do prestanka rada mehanizama za reparaciju tkiva. Ovaj članak daje pregled najčešćih ozljeda izazvanih prenaprezanjem kod sportašica , s posebnim naglaskom na anatomske, fiziološke i psihološke razlike među spolovima.

    English abstract

    The last three decades have witnessed a tremendous increase in female sports participation at all levels. However, increased sports participation of female athletes has also increased the incidence of sport-related injuries, which can be either acute trauma or overuse injuries. Overuse injuries may be defined as an imbalance caused by overly intensive training and inadequate recovery, which subsequently leads to a breakdown in tissue reparative mechanisms. This article will review the most frequent overuse injuries in female athletes in the context of anatomical, physiological, and psychological differences between genders.
