Abstract

The reason for injuries in eSports is that in order to succeed at gaming on a competitive level, athletes are typically required to play for many hours a day. Teams often practice together from three to four hours a day, and as with many sports, this is the bare minimum. These practices also take place in environments that have inappropriate lighting, engender poor posture, and challenging time awareness. The result is serious overuse injuries. At the same time, there are important benefits that can accrue from participation. The challenge is then to create an environment that enhances health benefits while allowing the athletes to pursue their chosen sport and minimize health concerns.
