Common Injuries

Hamstring Strain

This is when the Hamstring muscle gets torn and there are different degrees of tears. To prevent this from happening, warm up the muscle for 20 minutes, stretch it and get it 1 or 2 degrees warmer.

Crucial before a game as most injuries occurs in a game situation rather than training. If you get a Hamstring Injury then it's R.I.C.E (Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation).

Sprained Ankle

Mainly ligament damage, damage to the ankle capsule and soft tissue damage. Common Football injuries can be prevented by lots of strapping around the ankles and ankles braces reduce the chance of injury.

Knee Cartilage Tear

This is a frequent Football injury due to all the turning and twisting when playing. It is a bit misleading as it's the meniscus in the knee that is damaged.

Not a lot you can do to prevent this as it's 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.


This is a groin injury due to twisting, slipping sprinting and kicking. Core Strength and stability exercises can prevent a hernia from 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, and help with balance and stability. Skiers often get ACL injuries as well.

Pre-Existing Medical Conditions

If you have pre-existing medical conditions and you plan to play Football (Training) whilst travelling abroad, we can provide you with a policy.
