The World Cup And Common Soccer Injuries

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Woman Holding Injured KneeJune and July have been exciting months for soccer fans. Atlanta already hosts our amazing Atlanta United FC. Everyone’s favorite midfielder, Miguel Almiron, with his big smile and powerful moves keep us coming back to watch more. And now the World Cup is in full swing in the month of July. If you’re a soccer fan, this is a time when you stick close to your television and stats to see who will be the final victor on the world stage. Soccer is a great sport, but it can also be associated with specific injuries to its athletes.

Common Soccer Injuries 

    • Ankle Sprain
    • Achilles Tendonitis
    • Groin Pull
    • Muscle Cramps
    • Concussion
    • Hamstring Pull, Tear, or Strain
    • Plantar Fasciitis
    • Pulled or Strained Calf Muscle
    • Stress Fractures
    • Shin Splints
    • ACL or MCL injuries
    • Torn Knee Cartilage 

Soccer injuries occur due to overuse or acute injury. An overuse injury usually occurs due to stress on your muscles, joints and soft tissue over a longer period of time. Acute injuries are attributed to a sudden impact or force.

In order to prevent common soccer injuries there are some important steps you can take. 

      • Take time to warm up before playing.
      • Wear protective equipment when appropriate. 
      • Play using proper technique and play according to soccer guidelines.
      • Take time to cool down.
      • Remain hydrated.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
