Soccer Injuries Because it happens

Intro

When playing soccer, many people think it's an easy game. Take the ball, do a couple of passes and shoot. And yes, it is easy. But what most people don't know are injuries soccer can cause. Soccer players suffer from common injuries that sometimes can completely change your life. But there are ways that you can prevent almost all injuries. Little kids that play soccer are never hurt because they don’t know how to be physical. But as you grow up and keep playing soccer, it can get pretty rough. And sometimes when people get too rough they create injuries.

Common Injuries

Of course, there are many soccer injuries. Some common ones are sprains, strains, fractures, head injury(concussion), hamstring pull or tear, blisters and many more. Some of these injuries can hurt for a little while. While others can hurt for weeks, months, even years! Something recent in La Liga(a soccer league), a soccer player named Fernando Torres; one of the most known players had a concussion when he was in a head collision. He suffered some brain damage, but nothing too severe to change his life. And this comes to show that being a soccer player means taking care of yourself. Information was recorded from 2000 to 2014. 3,000,000 children needed to be at a hospital for treatment after getting injured badly on the soccer field. The hospitals treated 200,000 head injuries during this time.

Prevention

All of these injuries can be prevented in many ways. A simple way to prevent most injuries is by having a good warm-up. Aerobic conditioning(jogging), will increase your heart rate. This is good because if you start a game with your normal heart rate, it can be hard to increase it quickly for a game. Sprinting and stretching before a game will prevent most injuries.

conclusion

So the next time you're about to play soccer. Always think about what to do to warm up, because you need to be ready to play right away. Something I did not explain were about the cleats. Depending on where you play, you always need the right cleats or you could slip or get hurt. Soccer is an easy game, but sometimes you need to think about the other things in the game.
