Soccer / Futbol

The numbers are similar for both professional and youth players. It’s a sport that pushes players’ lower extremities to their limits. Combining extreme propulsion and acceleration with fast cuts, collisions and other contact, you can begin to see why soccer is near or at the top of our list for potential foot and ankle injury exposures during both training and competition.

Following are some of the most common soccer injuries to players’ feet and ankles:

Achilles Tendonitis
Ankle Sprains
Jones Fracture
Metatarsal Fractures
