Soccer is a fun sport enjoyed by millions of people worldwide. Although it may not seem like a dangerous sport, injuries are rather commonplace in soccer. Let’s take a look at some of the most common injuries that happen during soccer.
At the top of the list are ankle sprains. It is very easy to roll an ankle while trying to make a sharp cut on the grass of a soccer field. There are also times when a person may sprain an ankle by stepping on the foot of another player. Sometimes ankle sprains are minor, other times they can be more severe.
Hamstring injuries are also quite common. These injuries can happen simply if a person is not warmed up when they being play. They also can come from a muscle imbalance in the legs. A sudden start is what usually brings the injury on. It can be anything from a simple strain to a complete muscle rupture.
Groin pulls are another common injury. Like hamstring injuries, they can result from not properly warming up before play. They can also be minor or severe.
Warming up properly can help prevent some injuries, while other injuries may happen even if the best preventative measure are taken.
