MARSOC Injury Prevention and Human Performance Research

The Operator is the foundation of Special Operations Forces and optimal physical readiness will promote tactical performance and reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injuries. The objectives of this initiative were to measure the effectiveness of Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command’s human performance program to improve injury mitigating and performance characteristics and to reduce musculoskeletal injury. Marines were recruited to coincide with three distinct time points during the MARSOC school pipeline. These time points were identified for their operational relevance and contact need of human performance. A clinical trial model also tested Marines prior to and following completion of eight-week interventions directed by the human performance personnel.
