CONCORD, CA--(Marketwired - November 21, 2016) - Game Ready®, the leader in active compression and cold therapy technology for injury treatment and post-operative recovery, today announced it is publishing two resources detailing typical soccer injuries that athletes suffer and recovery strategies for those injuries. The resources are available for free download at http://info.gameready.com/the-most-common-soccer-injuries and http://info.gameready.com/read-the-guide-quick-recovery-tips-for-soccer-injuries.
Soccer is an aggressive sport that often results in injury at some point in an athlete's career, whether the player is an amateur or a professional. Given that the sport primarily focuses on running and kicking, most injuries occur in the ankles, calves, knees, thighs, and hip flexors. Getting back on the field as quickly as possible is a high priority for many soccer players, but athletes must take care not to return to activity too quickly so as to avoid the risk of re-injury and possibly an even longer recovery period. Game Ready's new resources take a look at the most prevalent injuries that soccer players suffer and offer recovery tips to get those players back on the field. The two resources are:
"Many athletes are enthusiastic about their chosen sport, and soccer players are no exception," says Craig Grabell, President and CEO of Game Ready. "Sprains, strains, and torn ligaments can happen when pivoting, quickly changing direction, sprinting, jumping, or rotating a joint beyond its normal range of motion -- all movements that occur multiple times in a typical soccer game. Our new guides are helpful primers for identifying and recovering from injuries that players experience on the field."
