THE FIVE MOST COMMON SPORTS INJURIES EXPERIENCED BY SOCCOR PLAYERS ARE ANKLE SPRAIN, HAMSTRING INJURIES, KNEE CARTILAGE TEARS, ACL (ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT) SPRAINS AND SPORTS HERNIA'S.  ANKLE SPRAINS ARE SOFT TISSUE DAMAGE WHICH OCCURS MAINLY TO THE LIGAMENTS WITH 95% OCCURRING ON THE LATERAL ASPECT OF THE ANKLE TO THE ANTERIOR FIBULAR-TALAR LIGAMENT, SOMETIMES WITH FRACTURE OF THE DISTAL FIBULA.  PREVENTION CAN BE PROVIDED BY STRENGTHENING ALL THE MUSCLES AROUND THE LOWER LEG AND TAPING OR BRACING THE AREA.  AN INJURY TO THIS AREA CAN TAKE 2 WEEKS UP TO 6 MONTHS TO FULLY HEAL.

MORE PEOPLE ARE PLAYING SOCCOR THAN EVER BEFORE AND IT IS THE MOST POPULAR SPORT IN THE WORLD.  THE GAME IS ONLY KNOWN A SOCCOR IN NORTH AMERICA AND IS KNOWN AS FOOT BALL EVERYWHERE ELSE.  THE AVERAGE SOCCOR PLAYER RUNS APPROXIMATELY 11 KILOMETERS DURING A GAME WHICH CAN LEAD TO A LOT OF WEAR AND TEAR THROUGH THE ENTIRE BODY.

IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FOR SOCCOR PLAYERS TO MAINTAIN FITNESS THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE YEAR AND TO ALWAYS WARM-UP AND COOL DOWN AS WELL AS TO KEEP HYDRATED.

Podiatrist, Dr. Joseph Difrrancesca, a Norwich podiatrist who treats many athletes with turf toe states, "turf toe usually involves an activity on a firm surface, and is most common in football. The recent popularity of using artificial turf over natural turf is part of the reason for the rise in cases. A force applied to the calf muscle while the knee is flexed is another cause of turf toe.  The injury is primarily mechanical in nature and so is the treatment. Putting the foot in a more rigid shoe or an orthotic device will avoid further injury.  He also thinks careful selection of athletic shoes with a rigid shank will reduce injury rates."
