Common Soccer Injuries 

Sprains and Strains: usually involving the knee or ankle joints, sprains and strains are very common in soccer and most often occur as a result of sudden stopping movements. In mild cases, injuries may include rolled ankles or light sprains which will need to be treated to prevent swelling.

Fracture: colliding with another player can have very harmful results. While often only resulting in cuts or bruises, collisions with another player can result in painful fractures.

Head Injuries: head-on collisions carry a great risk of causing concussions. Symptoms usually involve a headache, loss of consciousness, dizziness and often memory loss.

Tendinitis: as inflammation is a natural way that the body responds to injury, tendonitis is a natural inflammatory response to injury to a tendon.
