Make it Your Goal to Avoid Injuries Playing Football

Football is a fantastic form of exercise. It can be entertaining, fun and even exhilarating (when you score a 20 yard volley). It isn’t a surprise that football is considered the world’s most popular sport, such is the excitement that it induces. Over 3.2 billion people around the world watched the last World Cup. It’s played by males and females, the young and the old, and the talented and the not so talented.

However, despite its popularity it also has a high injury rate with many professional and amateur players hurting themselves after a match. There are ways to minimise risk of injury. It is important to condition yourself to avoid minor injuries like sprains and strains. Even if you only play football for pleasure, it is worthwhile going to the gym to build up your hamstring and inner quadriceps muscles. In addition to conditioning, it is imperative that you go through proper stretching, warm-ups and cool downs. Research shows that cold muscles are more injury prone, resulting in athletes experiencing more soreness, tenderness and pain after exercise.

In addition to minor injuries, there are more serious injuries that you can suffer on the football field including:

  • Pulled Hamstrings
  • Ruptured Cruciate Ligaments
  • Groin Pains

If believe you are suffering from one of the above injuries then it is a good idea to consider physiotherapy in London. Here at Technique Physiotherapy we have proven sports injury treatments.
