2. Most Common Football Injuries
Hamstring Strain: This is when the Hamstring muscle gets torn and there are different degrees of tears. To prevent this happening, warm up the muscle for 20 minutes, stretch it and get it 1 or 2 degrees warmer. Crucial for before a game as most injuries occur in a game situation rather than training. If you get a Hamstring Injury then its R.I.C.E (Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation)
Sprained Ankle: Mainly ligament damage, damage to ankle capsule and soft tissue damage. Common Football injury's can be prevented by lots of strapping around the ankles and ankles braces really reduce the chance of Injury.
Knee Cartiledge Tear: This is a frequent Football injury de to all the turning and twisting when playing. It is a bit misleading as its the meniscus in the knee that is damaged. Not a lot you can do to prevent this as its usually the position of the knee bearing weight when this occurs. Strong quads and hamstrings always help if a lot of pressure is put on the knee.
Hernia: This is a groin injury due to twisting, slipping sprinting and kicking. Core Strength and stability exercises can prevent a hernia happening. If these areas can be strengthened, that is the abdomen and pelvis then the body can take more of the strain and thus the injury is less likely.
ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament): This Ligament connects the thigh bone to the shin bone. It stops too much rotation of the knee and is an important component of the knee. Can be injured by falling awkwardly or twisting.
Using a Wobble Board can prevent this and also help when you are trying to heal this injury. Wobble boards help improve the nerves around the knee, helps with balance and stability. Skiers often get ACL injuries as well.
