Does playing/training on turf result in more injuries?
I love it when research either proves or disproves a school of thought. That's what science is all about. If you would have asked me yesterday, I probably would have said yes, but according to an article with a lot of data and research, apparently it doesn't...

Some studies even show the opposite, that there are sometimes less injuries from playing on turf.
