The most common football-associated injuries affect the lower body, including areas such as the hips, groin, thighs, hamstrings, knees, ankles, feet, calves and shins. It is very common for professional footballers to become injured through tackling manoeuvrers, twisting their body awkwardly, turning, shooting or running. Running or being knocked into by other players also carries an injury risk when tackling. Professional footballers often suffer repeat injuries, meaning that it takes much longer for them to recover. Training sessions also carry injury risks before a competitive match.
