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.
