Many people around the world in all different countries love to either play the sport or watch it. It may not be the top sport in the U.S. but It’s up there. One of the most popular sports in the world is soccer. As with any physical activity there is risk of injury. There are many common soccer injuries, but by taking certain precautions one can reduce the risk and maximize playing time. Soccer can cause very serious injuries.Specific Types Of Injuries You Can GetWhen playing the sport either at practice or at a game you might be very unlucky and pick up and injury. Ligaments and muscles are usually what soccer players injure, for example ACL tears and also hamstrings are a big one for soccer players, according to the NCAA men’s soccer injuries it says, “Soccer players are uniquely susceptible to muscle strains and ligament sprains due to the quick changes in direction, lateral movements, pivoting and the rapid accelerations and decelerations involved in the sport. The hamstrings, adductors (groin) and other muscles around the hip and thigh are particularly susceptible.”  Pulling a hamstring or “hammy” as some people refer to it is a huge one for soccer players. A tear where the tendon and muscle attach is a hamstring strain.Knee injuries are often occurred too for soccer players. Two types of syndromes in the knee are Patellofemoral pain syndrome and Iliotibial Band Syndrome. The Iliotibial Band Syndrome is usually pain that is felt on the outside of your knee (lateral). The Patellofemoral pain syndrome or also referred to as “Runner’s knee”, this pain is usually around the kneecap or underneath it. These are only some of the many knee injuries/syndromes you can get. According to NCAA men’s soccer page it shows the injury breakdown percentage, “5.5% is concussions, 4.3% is Head, face and neck, 6.2% is upper limb, 14.7% is torso and pelvis, 65.6% is lower lumbar, and 3.7% is other.”How To Treat These Injuries To Get Back ASAP    Some of the injuries you get may not be that big of a deal, you can treat them by a period of rest, icing, and elevation most coaches say the same thing if someone has a mini injury. If you have a really serious injury you might need to see a physical therapist or some sort of doctor like that. The worst thing possible is to have to get surgery, this is only if it is a really big deal. For example if you break something like a bone or dislocate something you might need to get surgery if it’s a really bad break. This will keep you out of the games and practices for a pretty long time. Make sure to treat this with medication that you are prescribed by your doctor (don’t use anything that the doctor didn’t prescribe you). Usually you get a prescription medication containing a narcotic in it from your doctor.How To Prevent Yourself From Getting Injured And Certain Precautions You Can TakeOne way from preventing yourself from getting an injury is stretching yourself very well before you start to play so you don’t have any cramps during the game, because cramps can lead to injuries. Make sure to stretch every part of your body and especially the parts where your hurting the most. Asking someone to help you stretch is very helpful you can stretch better. If you’re not feeling good and are hurting before the game make sure to tell your coach and ask your coach to sit out for a little.Another precaution to take to prevent you from getting injured is to not get into all the dirty plays. For example, if you can tell one of the opponents play dirty don’t really go after them a lot try not to get involved. Also some moves/shots in soccer are risky such as the well known “bicycle kick” or “overhead kick” that the greatest player ever Pele invented. While going for this kick you might hurt your back and land wrong. Someone might also kick you while going for this shot which will hurt if they have a powerful kick. Make sure to wear all the gear you’re supposed to such as your shin guards and the appropriate cleats. Before the game look at the field and look at the condition it’s in make sure you don’t trip over any bumps.One very important Precaution you need to take is if any part of your body is hurting even if it’s just a little bit before the game tell your coach and notify them so they know, they will most likely not put you in as soon as the game starts until they find out what’s wrong . If you’re in the game and you start to feel some part of your body hurting automatically ask for a sub. One huge thing is if you’re feeling dizzy because Of an earlier incident in a play ask for a sub and immediately tell your coach because you might have a slight concussion or maybe an actual concussion and the sooner you see a doctor the better so you don’t wait it out and have it become a bigger problem.International, Inc.
