Football Injury Causes
- Excessive stretching and tearing of muscle or tendon fibers from strains usually occur in the muscle or where the muscle attaches to the tendon.
- A sudden violent action that forces the joint beyond its limits can result in a complete tear of a ligament, which then progresses to a joint dislocation or fracture of a bone in the joint.
- Severe injuries to the joints of 8 to 15 year olds can result in an avulsion fracture that involves the growth plate. If not treated properly by sports health team this injury could result in bad long-term effects.
- Colliding with another player, the ball, or the field can cause a traumatic injury like a fracture.
