The position of track and field in competitive sports is very important. As a huge resistance in track and field training and competition, sports injuries can affect athletes' training, performance and even sports career. Understanding the common causes of sports injuries and countermeasures for track and field athletes is of great significance to the development of sports in my country. The purpose of this article is to study the common causes and countermeasures of sports injuries in track and field sports. This article uses literature research, questionnaire surveys and other methods to study sports injuries of high-level track and field athletes in colleges and universities, summarizes the rules, and obtains the reasons for the injuries, and further proposes targeted prevention and treatment methods to provide athletes with more scientific theories in accordance with. In this article , through interviews with experts and teachers in the track and field direction of the Provincial Sp orts University, to understand the basic situation of track and field athletes and other related content. In this article, through interviews with specialists and doctors of the Department of Sports Medicine in the hospitals of the province, the relevant content such as professional knowledge of sports injury treatment is proposed. This article asks questions about the current situation and characteristics of students' sports injuries, the causes of their injuries and their understanding of track and field sports injuries. A questionnaire for high-level track and field athletes in colleges and universities based on the research purpose and content of this article was formulated. The survey results show that about 89% of athletes have suffered sports injuries due to unskilled techniques. Therefore, colleges and universities should master technical movements proficiently during track and field training or competitions to avoid sports injuries as much as possible.
