Health Tip: Gear Up for Safe Soccer

Health Tip: Gear Up for Safe Soccer

10/01/12

(HealthDay News) -- Proper technique, protection and training are essential to preventing soccer injuries.

The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons offers these safety suggestions for soccer players:

  • Stay in good physical shape, even in the off-season, with regular exercise and strength training.
  • Always warm up and stretch before playing.
  • Always cool down and stretch after playing.
  • Be sure to drink enough water before and during play.
  • Always wear proper safety gear, including shin guards and shoes with ribbed soles or molded cleats.
  • When the field is wet, use soccer balls made of synthetic, nonabsorbent materials, instead of leather.
