The Fifa World Cup has arrived! 32 teams will play in the Fifa finals to determine the world champion. Right now, Brazil and Germany are considered the most likely to win, but they’ll both have to get past several talented teams. In honor of the Fifa World Cup, we’re going to take a moment to talk about soccer related sports injuries.

Soccer, AKA football depending on where you live, is the world’s most popular and widely followed sport. Even in the USA, where professional soccer isn’t as popular, the sport remains the second most widely played among youth, behind only basketball. While soccer is generally viewed as a safe sport, injuries can still occur. No one wants to get hurt, of course, but injuries are going to happen.

Sprains are the most common soccer injuries. Most football injuries occur in the legs and lower body. This should come as no surprise. After all, soccer is called football in most countries for a reason. You play with your feet and legs. However, people also often collide, which can cause injuries to the head, chest, shoulder, and other areas.

Another common injury is a shin splint, or soreness in the shin. In a worse case scenario, an athlete might suffer a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), or tear their cartilage in their knees. Such severe injuries will require surgery and months of recovery. In extreme cases, the athlete may never fully recover.

Regardless, sprains are more common and there are treatments you can use to speed up sprain healing and to prevent the sprain from ever occurring. Of course, with prevention, safe play is the best way to ensure that you don’t get hurt. However, even very careful athletes may suffer muscle and joint sprains.

When playing soccer, it’s important to not overextend yourself. If you’re feeling sore, don’t tough it through the pain. If you do so, a minor injury could quickly evolve into a severe strain or even a tear. It’s best to rest up and to heal your sports injury.

While you’re resting, you can use some all-natural supplements and treatments to speed up the healing process. There’s a reason why many professional athletes, including Olympians, use QiVantage’s muscle and joint injury recover kits.
