NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Most soccer players who break a bone will return to the playing field and compete at the same level as before their injury, a new study from Scotland suggests.
A new study of children’s soccer injuries released Monday in the journal Pediatrics found soaring rates of concussions, broken bones, lacerations, torn tendons and ankle sprains since 1990.
Return to competitive soccer averaged 40 weeks for combined tibia and fibula fractures, 35 weeks for isolated tibia fractures, and 18 weeks for isolated fibula fractures. Injuries were associated with a high incidence of major complications (12 out of 31, 39%), especially in concurrent tibia and fibula fractures (8 out of 15, 50%).
Falls and direct blows from player-to-player contact can result in broken bones. Soccer players are also more likely to experience a stress fracture, which develops when overuse weakens the bone. Concussions in soccer. A concussion is a traumatic brain injury in which the brain shakes inside the skull. It can lead to fogginess, irritability, sleepiness, confusion, and other serious complications over time.
Therefore, broken ankles, shin bones, and traumatic knee injuries are unfortunately common. Other injuries that might occur during soccer games include: Upper limb injuries such as a broken arm or collar bone; Head, neck, and face injuries due to collisions; Back-related injuries
