Injury prevention is multi-factorial and normally involves following your coach's recommendations and general guidelines to the best of your ability. Your genetic data gives you the opportunity to manage your time more effectively and focus on preventative measures for injuries you're more at risk for.

Discover where you can focus your energy – whether that's perfecting your technique and recovery to avoid injuries or prioritizing other aspects of your training. Understanding your DNA can help you to balance risk versus reward and optimize your training and lifestyle to account for your body's unique needs.
