This is a review about the history and evolution of sport injury factors selecting and analyzing different papers from 2000 up to the present. In this research, the author makes a critical interpretation about the treatment of the environmental factor taking into account the importance of this issue for the human development in this new century. In this study he established a detailed comparison among the authors and the way they assume etymologically the term and structural conception of sport injury factors. With this paper the author intends to reinforce the importance of the environmental factor as a component of the sport injury factor, but with a more integrated approach far from the traditional naturalistic held by most of the authors. It is an attempt to improve the theory and practice of the physical preparation in terms of sport injury factors and injury prevention.
