FOOTBALL INJURIES

Football is one of the most popular sports played by young athletes, and it
leads all other sports in the number of injuries sustained. In 2007, more than
920,000 athletes under the age of 18 were treated in emergency rooms,
doctors’ ofces, and clinics for football-related injuries, according to the U.S.
Consumer Product Safety Commission.

WHAT TYPES OF INJURIES ARE MOST COMMON IN FOOTBALL?

Injuries occur during football games and practice due
to the combination of high speeds and full contact.
While overuse injuries can occur, traumatic injuries such
as concussions are most common. The force applied to
either bringing an opponent to the ground or resisting
being brought to the ground makes football players
prone to injury anywhere on their bodies, regardless
of protective equipment.
