Purpose: Comparison of lower limbs injuries in male and female professional athletes in Poomsae Premier League. Methodology: The statistical population consisted of 143 martial athletes in men and women premier leagues who are 76 females and 67 males. Among them, the athletes who suffered injuries were considered as samples of this study. The mean age of male subjects was 28 +/- 11.14 years; mean weight was 50 +/- 6.91 kg; mean height was 161 +/- 7.44 cm; and mean age of female subjects was 30 +/-12.02 years; mean weight was 49 +/-6.47 kg; and mean height was 160 +/-7.55. The data was collected by the researcher and under supervision of a physician using modified questionnaire of Destombe et al. (2006). Descriptive statistics and chi-Square were used for data analysis. Results: Results of the present study showed that the highest rate of injury in men and women related to ankle and hamstring, respectively. And there was a significant difference between men and women in hamstring injuries (x2=12.52, p≤0.05). The most common type of injury in men was sprain and in women was strain; and the most common mechanism of injury in men was previous injuries and in women was due to rotational strikes. According to the results of this study, it can be concluded that if coaches pay more attention to teaching the techniques, and the team’s physiotherapist rehabilitate the athletes completely, the prevalence of injuries at any age and gender can be minimized.
