The most common situational patterns were pressing, being tackled and kicking. 88% of ACL injuries occurred without direct knee contact, but indirect contact injuries were as frequent as non-contact injuries, underlying the importance of mechanical perturbation.
Finally, the costs of 702 injuries were analyzed. Results: The average cost of an injury in nonprofessional soccer amounted to €4030 (bias-corrected and accelerated 95% confidence interval (BCa 95%CI): 3427-4719). Persons aged 30 years and older experienced 35% of soccer injuries but accounted for 49% of all costs.
Injury Location and Type. Most soccer injuries occur in the lower limbs (60–90%), especially the ankle, knee, and thigh [ 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 ]. Among male players, the most common injuries affect the hamstring muscles followed by the ankle, knee, and groin [ 11, 13 ].
Soccer: An Analysis of the Sport Movement/Biomechanical Analysis – body and limb movement patterns and muscular involvement Physiological Analysis – required physiological characteristics such as strength, power, endurance, speed agility, etc. Injury Analysis – common sites for joint and muscle ...
Soccer is a relatively safe activity, with an injury rate of one-fifth to one-half of that in American football. But you can still get hurt. Soccer involves quick start-and-stop motions and physical contact, which can lead to injury.
Previous studies have shown that soccer has a high injury rate and injury percentage. 1, 3– 12 More injuries have been found in soccer than field hockey, volleyball, 3 handball, basketball, 11 rugby, cricket, badminton, fencing, cycling, judo, boxing, subaqua, and swimming. 13 Most soccer injuries occur to the lower extremities, especially the ankle. 5, 7, 10, 11, 14, 15
Several recent studies have focused on comparing injury incidence rates in soccer players who train and/or play matches on both AT and NG. Unfortunately, the results are somewhat variable, with some studies showing reduced risk of some injuries on AT and others showing no difference or slightly increased risk.
Here is a more comprehensive list of injury statistics in NCAA men’s soccer. Again, this data was obtained from the NCAA between the 2004/05 and 2008/09 seasons. Overall injury rate: 7.7 per 1,000 athlete exposures (games and practices combined) Injury rates in games: 16.9 injuries per 1,000 athlete exposures.
