What are the most typical football injuries?

Typical football injuries tend to affect the lower part of the body, especially the legs.

The joints of the knees and ankles are particularly at risk, and the hamstring is the most vulnerable muscle.

It may be the most popular sport in the world, but the nature of the game does come with high injury risks.

And with its growth in popularity amongst women, it is important to note that there is a higher injury rate in female players.

So what specifically are the injuries you should look out for? And what are the best treatments?

Shoulder Injuries

Shoulder injuries are common and mostly caused by athletic activities that involve excessive, repetitive, overhead motion, such as swimming, tennis, pitching, and weightlifting. However, they can also occur due to everyday activities such gardening and hanging curtains.

How do you know you have shoulder injuries? The most obvious sign is pain. Just like any other injury, if you are experiencing pain in shoulder you should consider the fact that you may have a shoulder injury. While pain can be a hallmark of shoulder injury, there are instances where injury is present without pain, particularly in chronic cases. Other signs and symptoms of shoulder injury include, but not limited to:

  • Stiffness. Is your shoulder stiff? Can you rotate your arm in all the normal positions?
  • Laxity. Does it feel like your shoulder could pop out or slide out of the socket?
  • Weakness. Do you lack the strength in your shoulder to carry out your daily activities?
  • Persistent tingling or numbness in your upper limb

Type of Knee Injuries

Knee injuries can stop you in your tracks. The human knee, like other joints, is a complex structure that does such an amazing and complex job so well that we can often take for granted the job it does.

Just imagine walking or running with your knees, or sitting, or getting out of bed in the morning, or many other things we love to do like cycling or dancing. The knee is made up of cartilages, bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles, fluid and other tissues all arranged in alignment to give the complex movement and activities that it produces.
