Soccer is one of today's most popular sports for young athletes. Our goal is to ensure that our patients are healthy and active on the field. That is why our Sports Medicine Team features experts who specialize in the treatment of soccer specific injuries.
What is the impact on the body?
Soccer is a high impact, high endurance sport. From the repetitive stress of running, to the inevitable collisions on the field, the body will certainly feel the effects of playing the sport. Soccer players are at risk for contact injuries (with other players, the ball or goalposts) and non-contact injuries. Our Sports Medicine experts understand the risks of soccer and work with our patients to educate them about injury prevention, as well as how to best rehabilitate when injuries do occur so athletes can be healthy when they return to the field.
