Injuries in Soccer: The Female Player

Most research about injuries in soccer has been done on male players. This report from FIFA acknowledges that fact, and pretty much compiles all the scientific articles that have been done about injuries in female players.  It’s great to see excellent female-specific information out there! This guide in health and fitness includes sections on “how to prevent ankle injuries”, “how to prevent ACL tears”, etc. Prevention is key! Strengthening core muscles (abdomen and back), and large and small leg muscles helps reduce the chances of injury significantly. There’s also a section on proper nutrition!
