Soccer Injuries

Soccer is one of the most popular sports in the world and the fastest-growing team sport in the United States. Although soccer provides an enjoyable form of aerobic exercise and helps develop balance, agility, coordination, and a sense of teamwork, soccer players must be aware of the risks for injury. Injury prevention, early detection, and treatment can keep players on the field long-term. Injuries to the lower extremities (hip joints, knees, ankles, and feet) are the most common in soccer. These injuries may be traumatic, such as a kick to the leg or a twist to the knee, or result from overuse of a muscle, tendon, or bone.
