Default Are injuries more common and if so why?

I was going to place this in the General Board area but this seemed equally as appropriate a location.

This is more of a sports related question/discussion because I'm not sure that injuries have become more common in PLing etc anyway; though, we do read of numerous shoulder rehabs going on at any one time, so it may be relevant there as well.

Watching sports it's very apparent that a lot of athletic sports tape seems to be used of late with lots of sports people (javelin throwers, shotputtes, track event people...etc) all competing with areas heavily strapped.

We see constant injuries in football (USA soccer), which in my opinion are due to the flimsier gear, then shin pads, thin socks, flimsy football shoes, in addition to the very lean football player in comparison to those of the 1970s and prior to that.

Do you feel some injuries are due to changes in approach within sports instead of using what worked previously? Are we now just pushing the boundaries a little too much and too quickly with less regard to recuperation and so forth?

Are we even seeing injuries that were never an isue in previous years; I once read that the rotator cuff was not even mentioned in the older publications but it's very prevalent in many today...which is kind of interesting in itself.

So, in short, do you feel there are more injuries, these days, in sports, across the board? And, if so, why?...and likewise if you think there aren't, please chime in.
