Preventing Soccer Injuries
Training tips and techniques
As with any sport, a good warm up is important to an injury-free soccer experience. Sports medicine experts recommend the following routine:
- Cardio: Start with a few laps to get your heart rate up.
- Stretching: Focus particularly on the lower body and hips, and don’t forget to stretch your neck gently.
- Passing: Begin with short distance passing, and then move gradually to longer distance drives.
- Shooting: Work up from lighter, shorter shots on net to harder shots.
- Sprinting: Include a few short distance sprints.
Finally, don’t play if you are extremely tired and therefore more prone to injury. Hydration and good nutrition will help stave off early fatigue.
Individuals should consult a physician before beginning any kind of training or conditioning program.
