Management of athletic injuries must be according to current best evidence. An ethical dilemma associated with developing best evidence is withholding an accepted treatment (e.g., ice) from an actively injured sport participant in order to determine whether the treatment is more effective than another treatment. Further, it is difficult to find a sufficient number of similar injuries to conduct a thorough research study on. Developing and implementing a human injury model may help provide a foundation on which evidence based practice can be established. This study focused on the use of a free flight tennis ball to create a superficial bruise similar to one experienced during sport participation.
