Football is one of the sports with the highest injury rate – whether you are playing at a professional level or an amateur one. Most football injuries affect the lower extremities – defined as the groin, pelvis, hip, thigh, knee, calf, foot and ankle – and are most commonly caused by trauma, such as a collision with another player or an awkward landing. Alternatively, football injuries can develop over a period of time due to overuse and repetitive stress and strain.
