||Physical training program undertaken by U.S. astronauts have resulted in a number of orthopaedic injuries. Injuries identified during the period 1987-1995 include fractures, and soft tissue injuries causing tears to muscles, ligaments and cartilage. Injury patterns are analyzed and suggestions are made for improvements. These include decreased reliance on running and competitive athletics for conditioning, improved personal preflight fitness training, and coordinated postflight rehabilitation.
